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!

    Great place for PhDs

    Pros

    This has been an awesome place for me to develop and grow into a consulting role and very supportive for me as a new parent

    Cons

    Typical consulting hours (i.e., 65+ many weeks, 75+ not unheard of) Could do better at hiring diverse candidates and international employees Would like to see more women and at MD level

    All the expected benefits of consulting, with a generally friendly and respectful culture

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Variety of industry exposure - Social, respectful, collegiate culture - Smart, capable colleagues - Small-firm environment, where you can contribute in your own way, with international opportunities (SWAPS, MBA-sponsorship)

    Cons

    - Lots of room to improve Equity, Diversity & Inclusion with a general lack of leadership in this space at the top-level. We're still at the very early stages in comparison to our competitors (particularly around racial equity, socioeconomic & LGBTQ+ inclusion), but looks like we're on a positive trajectory. - Room to improve IT and systems. Feels like our IT is stuck in 2010.
