    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei L.E.K. Consulting (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    L.E.K.'s cheapness can work in your favor. You won't be overnighting your slides to design teams or sending client data to an offsite analytics team; all of the work (good and bad) will be done by the team that you're staffed on. Exit options at the associate level are pretty good No travel

    Kontras

    No time off between cases Though you don't travel, being staffed across offices is extremely common and managers and partners travel frequently, so face to face interaction with the senior members of your team is often very rare. I've spent about half of my time at L.E.K. on teams where the majority of my team (including who I was reporting to) was in a different office Most people above the associate level just... simply aren't friendly and/or are extremely judgmental. Expect to be walking on eggshells frequently Recruiting lies about what the associate level job is. You will be doing 80% due diligence projects for PE firms and most "modeling" experience won't come until you're 18-24 months in to L.E.K., by which time most people are looking to leave. You'll really be googling, setting up phone calls with industry "experts" (think messaging people on LinkedIn to set up phone calls until you have ~30 phone calls set up in 3 weeks), and taking verbatim notes on every call. So not only are you setting up 30 phone calls, you're also taking 30 hours worth of notes as fast as you can type while someone more senior leads the phone call Most core services teams are wildly incompetent, from IT to HR 0 diversity. Women's network is gaining traction, but groups for POCs and LGBT employees are basically nonexistent / set up within the last year or two solely as a recruiting device

    Rat an das Management

    Revamp the A1 role - not only do many A1s not like the grunt work, but it's extremely inefficient to pay people $77k to schedule phone calls and send LinkedIn messages Revamp the C1 role - many new MBA hires aren't well equipped for how demanding the role is. 6 months in, several MBA hires are usually fired each year Add more CD/recruiting/time off between cases Scope projects reasonably and rely more heavily on... Guidepoint/expert networks to fill primary research campaigns rather than having an A1 send LinkedIn messages until midnight every night
