L.E.K. Consulting is a global managing consultancy with clients ranging from small startups to major private equity firms.

Employee Reviews

  • “A solid, respectable, well paid consulting firm. Collaborative, and minimal culture of competitiveness. Slightly behind the curve with DEI issues compared to competitors, but investing a lot more in the area as of late.”
  • “Choose L.E.K if you want to work in an international and flat-culture environment. It is best to have some life science related knowledge as most cases are life science related.”
  • “L.E.K. has a flat hierarchy where everyone is given the opportunity to express their ideas and be heard. It's client-centered but also people-focused which ensures that our client needs are met without compromising the needs of our people. And although we take our work seriously, our teams and even our most senior leaders know how to lighten up and have some good fun as well.”
  • “The early responsibility that the firms provides is unparallel, they make you accountable and owner of your work. This is one of the best qualities of the firm.”
  • “Your colleagues are your friends. This creates a fun, supportive culture where it is easy to be yourself at work. You don't have to watch your back, and people genuinely want you to succeed.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “3 first round interviews, 2 second round interviews with partners with about 50% cut off between the two. Culture/team fit, resilience and determination, communication and problem solving are key.”
  • “L.E.K. seeks people who are dedicated to learning and improving, have low egos and, most importantly, are kind and generous with their time. We hire people who will continue to give back.”
  • “Looking for a bright individual who has interests outside of work and is eager to learn and to engage with the office culture.”
  • “Match between raw intelligence, curiosity and uniqueness. Everyone here is special and it creates an incredible culture.”
  • “The ideal candidate would be one who is both business sensitive and equipped with structural mindset.”
