      Pros

      Huge amount of learning opportunities, SWAP program, good mix of work between practices, top of the line training and tools. Great reputation with clients. Awesome exit opportunities.

      Cons

      L.E.K.-ers work hard when there is a deadline - but then are given time off to account for it so it balances out. Australian offices have become good at prioritising what's important to the client. Business is growing quickly - so can be some growing pains.
