    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    salary, perks and office location

    Cons

    The culture. Simply put it’s toxic. The Culture in the Australian offices is one of negativity, one-upmanship and unhealthy competitiveness. They will tell you how collaborative the business is in your interview. This is a lie. The business has an insanely high turnover, it’s not hard to figure out why.

    Advice to Management

    Change your culture. Realise management needs to change.

    "Know what you’re getting into"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at L.E.K. Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Very smart, genuine people. Never really had a problem with the people. Learn things at a fast pace compared to corporate world, but pretty slow compared to other consulting firms

    Cons

    Hours are terrible (I knew that going in, still was rough) Little to no appreciation for junior staff Below market salary at junior levels, even when company gave a firm-wide raise, the junior staff got close to nothing while the consultants / managers were given a hefty raise. Very one dimensional cases (even non DDs operate similarly to a DD)

    Advice to Management

    There’s a reason why turnover is so high, and please don’t think that’s just how all consulting firms are like.
