    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 bei L.E.K. Consulting (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    L.E.K. Consulting requires you to travel much less than other strategy houses. This allows you to build strong bonds with colleagues while working on challenging problems.

    Kontras

    The hours can be long which is expected. the breadth of work may also be limited in comparison to MBB.

    Rat an das Management

    Acquiring key talent will be a key challenge for L.E.K. as they pursue their aspirations for growth. Also, technology and modernisation is key!

    Stimmt gegen Geschäftsführer

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

    Pros

    Management responsibilities right out of business school. Ton of exposure to due diligence work (because that's basically all you will do)

    Kontras

    People manage right away without proper management training which means while people that stay / get promoted might be smart they are not good managers. Work is brutal, they tell you it's a strategy consulting firm but it's actually a due diligence sweat shop. You don't travel but you also never get to go home. Terrible culture that is controlled by HR.

    Rat an das Management

    Stop being focused on just profit and actually start caring about people. Attrition levels are extremely high which shows that people don't want to stay, but that management also doesn't care about people staying.
