    Approves of CEO

    I worked at L.E.K. Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Loved the culture at L.E.K. Consulting. The managers were measured on how well they manage the workload of their team and the atmosphere is very productive and friendly. We did a lot of primary research to get data, which is a key differentiator for L.E.K. as most consulting firms don't do this.

    Cons

    A smaller consulting house in Southeast Asia.

    Pros

    Very smart associates; interesting work; great learning opportunities for leading teams, strategy work, PE exposure, etc.

    Cons

    Large lack of diversity in the firm, especially above manager level; hard to manage work life balance for years on end without a break; leadership acknowledges a need to improve culture (e.g., to be more inclusive, to be closer to social issues), but leadership as a whole seems to lack internal motivation to change things (saying without doing, promoting the wrong people)
