L.E.K. Boston Manual Labor @ Work

On July 16th, 14 L.E.K.ers from the Boston office had fun packing a total of 6,480 pounds of food at The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB), assembling 5,400 meals for elderly people in Taunton, MA. This was L.E.K. Boston’s third time volunteering at GBFB, the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the U.S.

Going from Summer Associate to Full-Time Associate in L.E.K. Australia

I joined L.E.K.’s Sydney office as a fresh-faced summer associate in 2012 following three years of an Economics/Law degree at Sydney University. Truth be told, I applied to L.E.K. hoping for something to keep me out of trouble over the summer and not fully understanding what management consulting involved nor what an L.E.K. associate actually did.

Why I Chose to Come Back to L.E.K. After Business School

In the fall of 2007, I interviewed with L.E.K. Consulting for an associate position in the class of 2008. Five case interviews later, I got “the phone call” from Managing Director Thilo Henkes. Little did I know, this was not just going to be some job right out of college, but a place where I would be able to truly grow professionally and personally every day I came to work.

L.A. Office Community Service

Over the past year, the L.E.K. Los Angeles office hosted several charity events, all of which were very well attended and supported by our generous staff. But in addition to these events, our staff wanted an opportunity to be out in the community giving back and personally helping to support those in need.

UCLA Undergraduate Case Competition

Here at L.E.K., we are always looking for opportunities to engage university students with the firm and the consulting world. Recently, the L.E.K. Los Angeles office held a week-long case competition with undergraduate students at UCLA. Students of all class levels and majors were invited to form teams of up to five members to solve a business strategy case.

International Travel for Case Work with L.E.K. U.S.A.

If you’re familiar with L.E.K. you probably know that unlike many consulting firms, our case work doesn’t typically require weekly travel. However, some cases offer unique opportunities and recently I had the chance to travel to the Middle East and work on a project for a global airline.

L.E.K. Boston Corporate Volunteer Day - At The Esplanade!

On the afternoon of Saturday May 13th, a group of 25 L.E.K.ers from the Boston office trekked over to the Charles River Esplanade to help with a beautification and clean-up project.

From L.E.K. to Entrepreneurship, Part Two

Like many young professionals, I too have an obsession with entrepreneurship.  In fact, I would spend many of my L.E.K. weekends brainstorming ideas with my now co-founder, James Morrissey. Both James and I spent extensive time living and studying in China before joining L.E.K., and quickly developed a desire to tie those experiences into our professional careers. Last summer, we stumbled upon an actionable idea.
