    Geschäftsprognose

    Pros

    - Projekte sehr kurzweilig und sehr strategisch - Durch wenige Reisen und (für branchenverhältnisse) angenehme Arbeitszeiten relativ hohe work/life balance - Hohe Grad an internationaler Einbettung - Schöne Lage im Herzen von München - Starke Positionierung im Bereich M&A - Sehr solide Profile der MAs

    Kontras

    - Bekanntheitsgrad (in Deutschland) verbesserungswürdig - Recht starker Branchenfokus auf Healthcare & Life Sciences (was man mögen kann) - Starker Fokus auf M&A/Projekte könnten vielfältiger sein

    Geschäftsprognose

    Pros

    Good hours and friendly team/company culture Essentially a case team assistant role. Great perks of being on the case team but without the long hours. Offers a solid 9-5 schedule and a mix of research, slide layout, interview contact sourcing, data cleaning, interview note taking/cleaning, and a great team!

    Kontras

    Low end of salary, new role in the firm that is still being fully developed. Some kinks have to be worked out and no clear career trajectory like the Associate role offers

    The reason to join... is to exit

    Geschäftsprognose

    Pros

    I only rate LEK highly because of the strength of the exit opps. The opportunities are great if you reach for them. After my two year mark I would get interesting opportunities in PE, PE ops, VC, Strategy, and (oddly) data science teams in my inbox and LinkedIn every week. When I started to actively recruit I was able to get interviews in the industry and function of my choice with ease. My thinking is... treat the company like it treats its employees. Extract what value you can, then leave.

    Kontras

    Partners and managers are incentivized to extract every bit of productive work out of As and Cs. This leads to high hours - 60-70 hour weeks for most. Not all ~65 hour weeks are created equally. At LEK the intensity of each hour is high, there's rarely a moment for a breather, I'm grateful if I can catch a 15-30 minute lunch and a 30 minute dinner before working til midnight or later. I am not one to get burnt out, but most As would complain to me about their feelings of burnout, which I definitely sympathize with. With hours and intensity at such high levels, the compensation feels low, especially when normalized for hours. After 1 year, the absolute comp and $/hr that you can get in industry is greater, and depending on the company, the trajectory can be just as fast.
