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

    Pros

    Focus on strategy with little to no implementation work. Great exposure to a variety of business problems. The people are not just intelligent but also kind and fun to be around. Limited travel.

    Kontras

    Fast-paced work environment and steep learning curve can lead to longer hours on some weeks. Doesn't have all of the resources of a bigger company.

    Rat an das Management

    Continue to outsource non complicated tasks to third parties or hire specialists internally.

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

    Pros

    Low-travel / office model is great for building community around the office, and coworkers are incredibly friendly and smart. You get exposure to a variety of casework across different industries in a fast-paced, supportive environment. Definitely would recommend others to join the firm - the "people" factor is truly what sets this firm apart!

    Kontras

    Long hours can definitely be tough, but being surrounded by great colleagues definitely makes those hours more bearable.

    Pros

    The people are top notch here. You won't find a smarter group here. Although people can be intense and focused during work, everyone has a wicked sense of humor. L.E.K is supportive culture where people take the time to invest in you. Not only will you learn to become more effective at work, but you'll also develop marketable skills, become a team player, and learn to prioritize your time efficiently. Everyone has a...

    Kontras

    Associates are expected to conduct the majority of primary research (i.e cold calling, emailing, and scheduling interviews). Depending on time sensitivity of the case, these sessions can turn into long nights. Sourcing interviews can be time consuming.

    Working out can be difficult because the nature of the work.

    Pros

    The people at LEK are great, everyone is really smart and sharp. Compensation is on the lower end of top end consulting firms but relatively high coming out of college.

    Kontras

    Communication leaves much to be desired. HR doesn't seemed to be plugged in to firm management. More client interaction would be ideal.

    Rat an das Management

    The firm is headed in the right direction, focusing on biotech and other emerging industries. Need to expand their foreign offices more.

    Pros

    A large variety of cases. Some exposure to private equity if that is your thing Reasonable salary although not for the hours

    Kontras

    Long long hours and working day finishes at 7pm earliest Associates receive little thanks and generally are not respected Pay per hour is weak Management only care about themselves (currently a pay freeze and no bonus below management level) L.E.K. is proud to say that they have never fired anyone due to a recession, but the truth is ppl are pushed all the time. The are forced to quit so that L.E.K. can keep...

    Greater communication to the staff is essential. Rewarding staff for a good job, even just a thank you would make working here less depressing

    Pros

    + The firm has doubled in size / revenue every 5 years for the past 10 years and has no plans of stopping the momentum + Firm has gained a tremendous reputation among the investment banks and PE shops / VC firms over the past couple of years due to its low priced / high quality (i.e., very quant heavy) / extrmely quick-turnaround work for these businesses (e.g., Bain Capital repeatedly hires L.E.K. to leverage our...

    Kontras

    - Pay structure, although competitive, does not reflect the additional pressures / expectations here as opposed to at other firms. There is no production team, lots of time is spent on mindless PPT edits, lots of time is spent on verbally positioning / rewording something, segmentations are expected to be extremely in depth with all qualitative feedback capable of being transformed into rigorously analyzed quant feedback...

    Rat an das Management

    As of July 2009, morale is extremely low at U.S. offices due to 1) lack of bonus / profit share compensation this year in comparison to other firms 2) enormous decrease in quality of life due to increasingly longer hours (without proper compensation) often blamed on management's untimely and unnecessarily thorough edits 3) lack of differentiation between performance / hours worked by vertical practices (i.e., "Why do...
