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!

    Collegiate and Collaborative Culture

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Culture is collaborative and fast-paced. Projects are high-impact and even as an intern, you take active ownership of the engagement.

    Cons

    Interns don't get many opportunities to interact with the senior management.

    A breath of Fresh Air

    Nov 25, 2021 - Marketing Director in London, England

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Super smart and engaging people to work with. A flexible work culture for people who are willing to take ownership of their role and responsibilities. Opportunities to continually innovate and learn. People are empowered to bring their skills and expertise and as you integrate into the organisation listening is a key skill to help you achieve results.

    Cons

    It is a busy organisation and prioritisation is key to being able to work well and feel comfortable. If you want to stretch yourself then this is the right place to be. If you aren't able to shift up a few gears when you need to take on something extra - it might not be right for you.
