The colleagues you work with- great group of smart, driven and friendly people you will learn from everyday

Downers

The hours and limited work/life balance

Comments

L.E.K. is a great place to start a career. You learn an immense amount everyday and learn to think strategically and logically in a way that can be applied to any future career or job. The people you start with become some of your closest friends and the work place is a supportive and exciting fast-paced environment. That being said, many people leave after ~2 years given the long hours (rarely any weekend work though!) and difficult work/life balance. L.E.K. is understanding of these turnovers and even goes so far as to help with your transition in any way they can. I would recommend L.E.K. as a first job to anyone willing to work very hard and learn a lot.

While I generally had a good experience at LEK, it's a shame that the brand is not well recognized, which impedes career growth.

as in most consultancies, ace the case interview and ensure your first real-world case goes extremely well.
