    Pros

    L.E.K. provides Good learning opportunity with Managerial responsibility as opposed to other consulting firms for a post MBA role. The work is fast paced and highly data driven

    Cons

    Projects can have short timeline meaning low opportunity to actually learn about the industry/ client before starting delivery. Too many PE projects can drain employees and work life balance is worse than other consulting firms
