    Former Employee - Consultant 
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at L.E.K. Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation is very high and much better than most other post-MBA opportunities Ability to get managerial experience at an early stage in ones career is rare and helpful when exiting Clients are typically not the sexiest but form a good mix of industries and sizes Third party recruiters seem to respect LEK and frequently reach out with opportunities

    Cons

    Hours are brutal, particularly for Consultants who are responsible for slide output. After the associates are finished for the night, consultants need to stay to review their work, resulting in consistently long hours. Few slow weeks or even days, resulting in burn out and major difficulty in maintaining a healthy personal life, whether single or in a relationship. Simple not enough time or manpower (mostly time) to get the job done Once you figure out how to run a case, handle the research, and build a deck, learnings seem to slow
