hours (not total hours, but occasional or consequtive 18-hour days - killers)


Comments

Consulting is tough hour-wise no matter which firm you join. You will feel it only when you are experiencing it yourself. At least 2 years of consulting experience is great to have for everyone.

Professional development opportunities


Downers

Primary sourcing


Comments

L.E.K. offers the best place to immediately gain immense experience and responsibility, and small case teams, with minimal un-allocated time. Entry-level employees have the opportunity to work in a large variety of industries in a short amount of time. However, entry-level employees have very little say over what type of case they work on.

Midlevel in Health Care and/or Pharmaceuticals
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

The people, the quality of the mentorship, the responsibility and analytical experience you get really early on


Downers

The hours, the fact that people act like the hours are normal when they definitely are not, the fact that some partners don't tend to stand by their teams and will pander to clients
