Culture / people

Comments

The culture is great. Also I have gotten exposure to many industries and companies since starting work here. I have learned a ton and lead interviews with top KOLs in many fields. I learn a lot just by talking to these people which is a really cool opportunity. All of my teams have been made of amazing and talented people. I highly recommend LEK to anyone looking to join consulting!

Nature of work (most other 'consulting' firms don't get top-level issue exposure), Insanely smart and fun people to work with

Downers

Hours and pressure (consulting generic though and comes with the choice for challenge)

Comments

L.E.K. is a true strategy and management consulting firm where you get to spend your time, albeit a good bit of your time, working with C-level clients on problems / projects that impact the entire business. The people you work with are going to be extremely smart and ambitious and that, coupled with the nature of the work, is going to push you to learn more relative to working at other firms.

Unpredictable hours (always on)

Do lots of cases to practice
Don't apply if you are not strong analytically - if you are lucky enough to get a job, it will be hell

Incredible learning opportunity and fun environment

Entry-level in Strategy | Los Angeles, CA | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

the people, and the fact that they are one of the only firms who still do pure strategy

Downers

As with every consulting firm, there are long hours- however, most cases never go above 60-65 hours / week

Comments

This place is amazing, small enough to have a startup-y feel but big enough to have all the benefits of a large firm. If you want to do pure strategy work, or if you're interested in working in PE / VC / biopharma down the line then this is the place for you
