Short projects, great people, pure strategy projects

Comments

L.E.K. offers a differentiated and rare opportunity to work in a generalist, pure strategy shop with short term projects and very low travel requirements. It is an ideal choice for candidates looking to see their co-workers on a daily basis, get a ton of repetitions in a short time frame, and work on strategic issues occupying the minds of C-suites. Though a generalist firm, L.E.K. has its strongest industry verticals in life sciences / pharmaceuticals, where we are a dominant player. It is also very strong in aviation, travel and tourism, and retail. L.E.K. offers strong exit opportunities to top-tier business programs and corporate strategy roles. L.E.K. has also become a market leader for middle market private equity due diligence, leading to very strong exit opportunities in private equity and venture capital.

Early management responsibility, strategy focus, limited travel

Downers

Lack of diversity

Comments

L.E.K. is truly a great experience to get early management responsibility and not burn out by all of the travel typically associated with the industry. The strategy focus and generalist approach allows you to see a lot of different areas, and the short tenors of the projects allow you to work with a wide range of partners and manage numerous individuals. The longer I'm with the firm, the more I realize the flat, caring nature of the entire upper management team. L.E.K. is an amazing opportunity!
