Will get more experience in a short amount of time than at other firms

If you are happy at the firm, the upward mobility is limitless

If you are unhappy, it is a great resume builder, so it's a Win/Win

The quality of our Associate is second to none

Client services work is tough - L.E.K. doesn't give all the perks that help offset that lifestyle

LEK continues to be a growth firm and is coming into its own. The firm is focusing real attention on improving work-life balance and the challenges we've had with long hours in the past. This is a great place to hone your consulting skills and work with a great group of people, while having real opportunities for advancement in the firm.

Number of projects you can work on, people and culture, no travel


Downers

Hours, not much client interaction at undergraduate levels


Comments

If you are looking for a consulting opportunity that can expose you to a wide variety of industries, companies and problems, L.E.K. is truly unique in that you'll be able to work on at least 8-10 different projects each year. Furthermore, the learning experience at L.E.K. is tremendous as you get exposed to both primary research and data analysis/market modelling relatively quickly. Finally, while the hours can be difficult at times, this is counterbalanced by very little travel and very little working from home or weekend work.

Great opportunities to learn and grow a tremendous amount as an associate, exposure to a wide variety of cases and industries


Downers

Firm culture that does not promote flexibility in work life balance


Comments

L.E.K. is truly a great place to start off a career in consulting. You get the opportunity to work with great people on interesting cases, but be prepared to work hard.

People are kind and very helpful. Good team dynamics, no slander and back-stabbing


Downers

Rigid promotion rules, people often automatically get promoted, so there is less incentive for the hard-workers to push harder if the reward / consequences are all the same
