    Pros

    1. very quick learning curve--you get exposure to a wide variety of projects quickly within one year as many projects are shorter in length
    2. early management opportunity -- you get to manage a case team of undergraduates right away
    3. low travel model - most projects are staffed locally and travel is minimal (often just for a few client meetings)
    4. pure strategy projects-- many projects are pure strategy projects rather than implementation

    Cons

    As with all consulting comapnies the hours can be long at times and the performance expectations are high

  2. This company prides itself as being a top consulting firm, yet its people are burned out, not nice and the work's menial

    Pros

    Decent name, good exit opportunities, good industry exposure

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance, people are really not that smart, tasks for junior level are so tedious like lots of cold calling and data crunching - very little opportunity for face time with clients. Company culture needs huge improvement too. HR Is also terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your employees more and maybe they'll be happier.

  3. Great learning and professional development opportunity

    Pros

    L.E.K. is distinguished itself from other consulting firms given its emphasis on core strategy projects, with less emphasis on operations and implementation work. Given this focus on strategy, L.E.K. requires significantly less travel than other consulting firms, which means that the default is to be in the office 5 days a week, which in turn creates a strong office culture. The strategy focus also contributes to a shorter average case duration, given employees more concrete learning opportunities outside of the formal Professional Development program.

    Cons

    There are high expectations of case teams, and sometimes cases will be sold for the sake of bringing in revenue, despite the fact that the system may be booked up.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to move in the direction of improving morale and work / life balance, even during busy times of the year.
