Fish that have already made it onto the buyside - honest thoughts on LEK? We do a ton of CDD, VDD, growth strategy, etc. and just curious how we are perceived. Thanks in advance!

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting

Interview

Interviewers were very helpful, called immediately after to notify about final round The interview was a little rushed though because they do not allocate sufficient time per interview and they were not really able to finish case, behavioral questions, and the Q&A in the time that was provided [30 minutes per interview]

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time you had to change someone's mind about something

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting

Interview

Straightforward - 3 interviews total, 2 30 min and 1 4 hr with multiple people. The first interviews were strategy and quant. They were over the phone. Focused entirely on life science (both pharma). Know about how to ask for patient incidence and how to get to drug revenues from there. The final interview was a mix of a longer case interview, market sizing, and fit. Overall quite fair.

There were three rounds of interviews which involved different case studies pertaining to guesstimates , analysis of profit, market sizing questions and other case studies as well. You have to explain your approach to arrive at the figure. Approach is more important than the answer.

I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting

Interview

Very efficient process with roughly four rounds of interviews. At the manager level they want you to align to a vertical, so it is important to highlight why you'd fit within a given team and what relevant work experience you can bring to the client engagements.

Interview Questions
  • Case-style interviews e.g. market sizing followed by fit within each round.
