    I have been working at L.E.K. Consulting full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very smart / engaged teams- makes day to day work fun and interesting. Projects are high impact / highly interesting. Very focused on high-level corporate strategy and large, impactful M&A. Compensation is inline with MBB. Probably only strategy consulting firm that does this high a level of strategy cases (in terms of leading clients / project types) that isn't Mon-Thurs travel so you get to sleep in your... own bed. Growing fast so lots of promotion opportunity; not "up or out". Good about protecting weekends from work.

    Cons

    It's professional-services so each client is a new boss and hours often 55-60/week rather than 40 and can be quite variable (not sure on Monday what hours on Thursday will be like). At least in U.S., new business is growing faster than new hiring so staffing is tighter with less breaks between cases than there should be.

    Advice to Management

    Substantially increase hiring to keep pace with growth of business

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at L.E.K. Consulting full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    L.E.K. focuses on strategic consulting engagements, which in turn contributes to shorter projects, less travel, and more time spent in the office compared to other Consulting firms. This leads to a strong in-office culture that makes L.E.K. an enjoyable place to work. The learning curve is steep, but L.E.K. provides a strong Professional Development program to help colleagues navigate the learning curve.

    Cons

    Like other Consulting / client services firms, predictability can be difficult on some projects. However, the firm has made strides towards improving work / life balance significantly

    Advice to Management

    Continue to move along the upward trajectory and be more strategic about not over-selling / under-staffing projects

    Incredible people. Feels like a small company with the resources of a big company. Strong job security and merit based promotions.

    Senior Engagement Manager in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at L.E.K. Consulting

    Pros

    Strategy focus - MBB say they are "strategy" but a very high share of their business comes from multi-year implementation projects Lack of travel - strategy cases means we are more efficient working from our home office than the client site (I have been on ~4 travel cases in 7 years) Management responsibility - from Consultant onward the role is to manage Associates rather then work in PowerPoint and Excel... yourself Entrepreneurial culture - being an MD at L.E.K. is essentially like running your own start-up with much less downside risk (albeit with less upside opportunity but the upside at L.E.K. is still big)

    Cons

    Long hours (gets much better with tenure if you are good / efficient) Unpredictable hours (inherent to client services)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to think of ways to enhance the sustainability of the work so we keep our best employees
