    I have been working at L.E.K. Consulting full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very smart / engaged teams- makes day to day work fun and interesting. Projects are high impact / highly interesting. Very focused on high-level corporate strategy and large, impactful M&A. Compensation is inline with MBB. Probably only strategy consulting firm that does this high a level of strategy cases (in terms of leading clients / project types) that isn't Mon-Thurs travel so you get to sleep in your own bed. Growing fast so lots of promotion opportunity; not "up or out". Good about protecting weekends from work.

    Cons

    It's professional-services so each client is a new boss and hours often 55-60/week rather than 40 and can be quite variable (not sure on Monday what hours on Thursday will be like). At least in U.S., new business is growing faster than new hiring so staffing is tighter with less breaks between cases than there should be.

    I have been working at L.E.K. Consulting full-time for more than 5 years

    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
