Entry-level in Health Care and/or Pharmaceuticals

4.3 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Great employee culture; challenging, interesting cases; specific role for PhDs; minimal travel

Work Hard Play Hard

4.4 of 5 stars

Midlevel in Strategy | Chicago, IL | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

People (smaller offices enable closeness among all levels & consistent access to upper management), Case Variety, Limited travel

Downers

Usually sold out so minimal beach / refresh time for staff

Comments

-Average hours are probably 60/week depending on whether you are on an easy case (50-60), a hard case (60+), or internal work (if you are working more than 50 something is wrong)
-Limited travel means that travel cases are a fun, exciting treat rather than a "ugh I have to go to the airport again" every Monday morning
-Swap is a great program that most associates take advantage of; allows you to switch places with a person in a different office for 6 months (I am currently swapping to London)
-Small offices (especially in combination with limited travel) mean that the firm feels less hierarchical than many; I am good friends with Partners / Managers and Consultants / Associates alike because most people are in the office every day
-LEK is one of the only remaining independent mid-size strategy firms. Keep that in mind if you don't want to be a cog in the wheel

Great strategy consulting opportunity at a firm that has a lot of strengths and great people.

4.3 of 5 stars

Midlevel in Strategy | Boston, MA | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The people, the challenging work, strong leadership team that has set up the firm well

Downers

Hours can be long and unpredictable.

Early responsibility managing a team at L.E.K. leads to interesting and challenging opportunities on strategy and diligence casework.

4.4 of 5 stars

Midlevel | New York, NY | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Low travel, high responsibility, shorter projects, great pay and exit opps

Downers

Hours are long, shorter projects can sometimes be too short

Comments

The projects we do are mostly strategy and diligences (vs long term ops or implementation projects). We rarely travel Monday - Thursday to the client site meaning you have a much better lifestyle than other firms. Also, you get a lot more responsibility a lot more quickly at L.E.K.

Exceptional colleagues, unparalleled culture, data driven

Uppers

The people

Fantastic experience and exposure to high-level executives at travel & hospitality firms

4.4 of 5 stars

Experienced in Strategy | Boston, MA | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Top notch travel & hospitality practice; great compensation relative to competitors; leaner firm provides earlier leadership opportunities

Downers

The partners have delegated too much leadership responsibility to support services (HR, finance); HR and finance departments are thoroughly incompetent and resistant to any feedback from consulting staff - they need to be gutted; staff allocation process (HR) is a mess

Learn consulting as quickly as possible by owning the entire process

4.4 of 5 stars

Midlevel in Strategy | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

The opportunity to manage projects, the culture, and the variety of work

Downers

The unpredictability of the hours
