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.

Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

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
