    Senior Engagement Manager

    Oct 20, 2015 - Senior Engagement Manager in New Delhi

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Strategy focus - MBB say they are "strategy" but a very high share of their business comes from multi-year implementation projects Lack of travel - strategy cases means we are more efficient working from our home office than the client site (I have been on ~4 travel cases in 7 years) Management responsibility - from Consultant onward the role is to manage Associates rather then work in PowerPoint and Excel yourself Entrepreneurial culture - being an MD at L.E.K. is essentially like running your own start-up with much less downside risk (albeit with less upside opportunity but the upside at L.E.K. is still big)

    Cons

    Long hours (gets much better with tenure if you are good / efficient) Unpredictable hours (inherent to client services)

    Challenging growth environment with smart, fun colleagues

    Nov 3, 2015 - Engagement Manager in New Delhi
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    L.E.K. focuses on strategic consulting engagements, which in turn contributes to shorter projects, less travel, and more time spent in the office compared to other Consulting firms. This leads to a strong in-office culture that makes L.E.K. an enjoyable place to work. The learning curve is steep, but L.E.K. provides a strong Professional Development program to help colleagues navigate the learning curve.

    Cons

    Like other Consulting / client services firms, predictability can be difficult on some projects. However, the firm has made strides towards improving work / life balance significantly
