2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

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!

Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

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.
