Work hours are lower than other firms, lack of travel, short cases = exposure to many different industries

Comments

Positives: Work hours are lower than other firms, lack of travel, short cases = exposure to many different industries
Negatives: work/life balance sometimes isn't as great as it is made out to be, lack of travel... it would be fun to do every once in awhile but I haven't traveled at all, lack of partner-associate interaction, it takes a long time to be promoted to consultant

L.E.K. prepared me well for success, but the process was more painful than it had to be.

They refuse to change their business model to help non-partners.

This firm does more private equity than you realize and you likely will have no way to influence on what cases you are staffed.

They use you, so you better be using them
