Uppers

You are consistently pushed to learn and do more if you are a top performer. Work is relatively interesting


Downers

Terrible culture, in terms of tolerating nasty / difficult employees and management not caring about employee burnout. Management / administration view us as resources as opposed to people. Limited control over allocations. Bad work life balance.


Comments

If you want to learn a lot and develop extraordinary analytical skills AND don't mind bad hours / difficult people, this could work for you. If not, look elsewhere

The people at L.E.K. are the absolute greatest, I hang out with a lot of my colleagues after work and on weekends


Downers

L.E.K. could have a little more client contact for the associate level


Comments

High-level, fast-paced strategy--rapid fire cases for a ton of different industries. Definitely why I signed up and in my first cases I saw everything from aviation to tech to retail, it's a hell of a ride!

Uppers

The People. Engaging work. People. No travel. People


Downers

Unpredictability of hours. Cold calling. Sourcing. Lack of vacation days. No significant gym reimbursement


Comments

I am fortunate to be surrounded by incredible co-workers and do engaging strategy work. Hours are actually reasonable. I love the fact we rarely travel for work. You will be exposed to a fair amount of private equity work.

The work can be menial at times, but I think that is to be expected at entry level.

Reach out to current employees - there is no better way to get to know an L.E.K..

Collegial and highly collarborative environment with incredibly personable and intelligent colleagues

HOurs can get long, little to no downtime between cases, limited vacation days and lack of unconventional benefits (no childcare or gym onsite, no 401k matching)
