L.E.K. London is taking part in ‘Steps Ahead Mentoring' which is a volunteer program that supports young job seekers by giving them the opportunity to build skills and experience in the workplace.

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.

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

I learned about L.E.K. during my senior year at Indiana University.  After scouring the internet for information on post-undergraduate business opportunities, I was certain I wanted to start my career in strategy consulting.

My USA SWAP Experience

I recently had the opportunity to partake in the swap scheme run at L.E.K., which is an excellent program that gives those with 2-3 years experience the chance to swap places with a colleague in another of our worldwide offices.  I was very lucky as I was able to swap to Boston for six months and then head straight to Chicago for a second three-month swap.

Why Consulting is Right for Me

My name is Tony, and I am entering my second year as a Consultant in the L.E.K. London office.  Prior to L.E.K., I was a student at Harvard Business School and prior to that, I was a consultant at a large firm in New York.  I decided to go back into consulting because I felt that I still had a lot to learn and develop within a professional services setting.
