Dynamic culture - Fantastic start to your career - Exit opps that dont disappoint

Downers

Working hard, I guess.

Comments

Moving from college to any job is difficult, and the jump to L.E.K. may be above average difficult, but what you gain from that steeper learning curve and some later hours is a tremendous skill set and a promising start to your career. Best of luck.

LEK is a great training ground for every level, I can count the number of "boring" days on one hand

So grateful I'm working at LEK

You will learn so much so quickly becasue we area a strategy consutling firm. You won't be stuck on a 4 month implementation or cost-savings case. You are always doing high-level, critical work surrounding company growth opportunities.

Downers

It is very external research heavy because we're collecting information and data that clients don't have. This means less analysis of clients' data and processes.

Comments

I can't stress enough how much we do strategy work (growth strategy, M&A evaluations, competitive landscaping) compared to growth and I have not been disappointed.
We also don't require you to internally "network" in order to get case opportunities. We have experienced very strong growth recently and have had to turn down clients because we're so busy.

Not having to travel.

Downers

Having a limited say as to the cases you work on.

Comments

Although there isn't much travel, L.E.K. provides the opportunity to work in foreign countries through their Swap program where associates and consultants can swap offices with somebody of the same role for 6 months.
