    I have been working at L.E.K. Consulting

    Pros

    Smart, chill people Solid exit opps Holistic professional development incl real management experience, giving performance reviews etc Smaller company culture - regular social events; feels like partners really care about you and your interests Shorter average project length (~6 wks) so you very quickly get in the rhythm of how to kick off and close out a case - expedites your professional development as a consultant and also lets you experience working with a wide variety of people and work styles Work flexibility - frequently can work remotely Hours aren’t bad - 100% protected weekends on the associate / consultant level & ~55-65 hr weeks typical (really more like 55-60 hrs) Interesting work with some amount of autonomy - BUT depends on how well your interests align with the office industry focus Faster promotion time to partner by ~2 years Opportunities like swap, secondment, flexible work programs (they are VERY flexible in finding ways to accommodate your work life balance preferences) Solid training opportunities Good benefits (parental leave, health care)

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on PE due diligence (makes up over one third of US revenue). These cases are fine once in a while, even can be rather interesting compared to other types - but staffing needs to do a better job of making sure individuals who want to do non-DD’s have more of an opportunity to explore other case types High utilization aka low beach time — however this is changing a bit over time as they’re hiring a lot. Also varies widely (some people get a lot, some people get none...) No 401k match.. although they have profit sharing bonuses in lieu, which pretty much makes up for it so fully loaded compensation is evened out w MBB Due to the focus on strategy work, you’re not going to travel as much as at other firms, which most people at LEK prefer, but that also means less hotel and airline points Less face to face interaction with clients due to lack of travel

    I worked at L.E.K. Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fundamentally a good training Some great junior staff members that will be friends for years to come

    Cons

    Most of the people there are slightly miserable The hours are long and the work is not very motivating There's very little agency or responsibility in the early stages of the role The partner group are very old fashioned and often uninspiring (the people that stay are mostly the ones that simply stuck it out or liked consulting but weren't necessarily good at managing people)
