    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei L.E.K. Consulting gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    - Starke Marke und gute Networking-Möglichkeiten, insbesondere mit Private-Equity-Kunden - Sehr quantitative und rigorose Herangehensweise an Fälle - Gute Positionierung, um sich für einen MBA zu bewerben oder nach ein paar Jahren in der Branche unterzukommen - Großteil der Arbeit vom Büro aus

    Rat an das Management

    Investieren Sie mehr in die persönliche Entwicklung und Arbeitnehmermoral / Zugehörigkeitsgefühl

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

    Pros

    - The people: truly, my coworkers (esp. Associates and Consultants) are some of the most down-to-earth consultants I have met; not as cutthroat of a culture as other firms - Casework focused on strategy rather than implementation - Little to no travel

    Kontras

    - Little in-person client interaction (due to little to no travel) - Difficulty getting on projects that you want unless you are dedicated to a sector

    "Stay away"

    SternSternSternSternStern
    Akt. Mitarbeiter - Associate 

    Ich arbeite bei L.E.K. Consulting (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Other associates are generally pretty good

    Kontras

    Inhumanely long hours and understaffed teams Lots of remote staffing / working with people in other offices Mean people Low retention. If you're recruiting as an experienced hire, it's because other people have been leaving early because they don't like it here. A lot of consultants who join LEK from other firms regret taking this job

    Rat an das Management

    I don't think management will listen - they just want to make more money selling understaffed 2 week dd's

    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...

    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...

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

    Pros

    Great people - especially at the associate level Low-travel model is great, even though it often results in longer hours compared to other consulting firms

    Kontras

    Slower to change and adapt than other firms - archaic staffing methods, fewer employee benefits, etc. Pay is beginning to slip compared to it's competitors and management doesn't seem to mind Longer hours in general - sometimes a result of poor case management, other times cases are poorly scoped Management's apathy to staff complaints has taken a serious toll on morale Overall, L.E.K. is growing very quickly, but...

    Rat an das Management

    Management - PLEASE listen to your staff and take a note from these reviews - they aren't just disgruntled former employees. They're people who are invested in the success of the firm and often bring you very valid complaints and issues. We're feeling ignored and undervalued - you're going to continue to lose great people until you make us feel like you care about us as much as your bottom line.

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

    Pros

    Small handful of genuine people

    Kontras

    A culture of entitlement from all levels of staff. Complaining at LEK seems to get you further than actual good work. Lack of diversity. Management has tried to address this by holding “diversity working groups” however it is a box ticking exercise with no tangible results. Toxic culture built on focussed on negativity.

    Rat an das Management

    This is pointless. Advice is given to management every 6 months on what staff would like to see improved however nothing ever changes.

    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei L.E.K. Consulting gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    -intelligent pre-mba associates / office culture varies across offices -opportunity exists to be on strategy projects with notable clients, albeit extremely rare -exposure to clients, including investment professionals at leading PE firms

    Kontras

    -retention has become a serious issue in the past few years, strong performers are almost always overworked and are expected to work miracles on poorly scoped cases -the firms follows a mantra of cheaper and faster relative to competing firms, which has significant impact on junior staff (associates and consultants), who more often than not are not properly trained to handle the workload or timeline -the staffing...

    Rat an das Management

    LEK's current business model may be great at driving near term (think 1 to 2 year growth), which at this point is largely driven by the sheer number of due diligence in PE that no other consulting firms want to pick up; the firm is woefully inadequate in planning for long term success -concentrate on retention: your staff is your most valuable asset; hiring larger quantities of increasingly incompetent replacements...

    Ich arbeite seit weniger als einem Jahr bei L.E.K. Consulting als Vollzeit

    Pros

    The opportunity to either be a generalist or specialize. I came to L.E.K. because of their phenomenal Life Sciences practice and I was not disappointed. The partners are extremely knowledgeable & the managers have played an active role in my career development. The cases are interesting and have impact. Within my first 6 months, I was owning my own workstream. Working locally has allowed me to develop relationships...

    Kontras

    You don't get much client interaction early on as work is done primarily in the office

    Provide Associates with the opportunity to present in client meetings

    Pros

    Low travel Interesting work MDs invest in you (once you show interest, and commitment) All growth strategy and commercial due diligences Never have to sit in useless meetings Pay is well above most other consulting shops (ex-MBB)

    Kontras

    A1 year is rough - little control over your life, and lots of grunt work - but it gets better! Long hours Some projects just suck Promote through timeline is way too long
