Professional development opportunities

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.

The people, the quality of the mentorship, the responsibility and analytical experience you get really early on


Downers

The hours, the fact that people act like the hours are normal when they definitely are not, the fact that some partners don't tend to stand by their teams and will pander to clients

Great opportunities to learn and grow a tremendous amount as an associate, exposure to a wide variety of cases and industries

Firm culture that does not promote flexibility in work life balance

L.E.K. is truly a great place to start off a career in consulting. You get the opportunity to work with great people on interesting cases, but be prepared to work hard.

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
