With its no-travel policy and rapid case cycles, the firm provides a blend of intense professional experience while allowing consultants to maintain a home base.

Long hours are all but unavoidable in consulting, and L.E.K is no exception, with insiders noting  that some projects requiring intense commitment and late nights.

Getting Hired Here

  • “Two rounds of interviews with two interviews each for associate level (post-undergrad). In the 2nd round of post-advanced degree/MBA hire interviews, there are three interviews. All interviews include some case portions and some behavioral ones. From the start of the first interview to the decision may take in the range of ~1 month. The ideal candidate for L.E.K. is someone who is humble, can learn from mistakes/others, and can drive deep into complex data to develop key insights.”

  • “Callbacks are fairly quick, with prospective candidates generally knowing within a week or two if they will be called back for subsequent rounds/if they are receiving an offer.”

  • “Ideal candidate has been described to me as ‘smart without an ego.’ Looking for people who are personable and easy to talk to, as well as sharp and well qualified.”

  • “They let me know I had performed well each round and hired me an hour after the final interview, so it was all very fast and transparent. I believe they are looking for (in my position) people with advanced degrees that have a very strong research background and understanding, but that can communicate well and with poise, while simultaneously being able to pick up business principles rapidly.”

  • “We exclusively use case interviews, to my knowledge, with basic behavioral questions layered in before and after as time allows.  I believe it is two rounds of interviews with three interviews each. Ideal candidate is someone who is pragmatic and data-driven in their work focus; someone with some degree of cynicism in them, but also very light-hearted and easy going in general.”
