    I have been working at L.E.K. Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Great start class dynamic and smart people across levels.

    Cons

    Insane hours. HR is not responsive to concerns and is not transparent about processes. Post-MBAs who are new to LEK often struggle to lead more experienced Associates, creating stressful team dynamics that are often inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to what employees have to say rather than not caring about retention and bringing on increasingly incapable replacements.
