While I generally had a good experience at LEK, it's a shame that the brand is not well recognized, which impedes career growth.

as in most consultancies, ace the case interview and ensure your first real-world case goes extremely well.

Uppers

Prestige, type of work, early responsibility, lack of travel

Unpredictable hours due to high DD volume

Comments

L.E.K. is a strong choice given it's high prestige, strong colleagues, and great work experience. If you are looking for a long-term career in consulting and/or have a family, a major benefit that sets L.E.K. apart is lack of travel (good for families and people who dislike living out of a suitcase)

This is a great firm for post MBAs, especially if you have prior management experience and don't want to go back to being an individual contributor. Associates at L.E.K. are doing the work that post MBAs do at most other firms
