The L.E.K. Difference: Selecting the Right Key to Your Future

There’s a lot to consider when deciding which road to take in your career. Believe me, I know. When I was in your shoes, I wanted to be on the professional fast track at a company that was a good fit. For me, that meant looking for a company where I could see myself growing, and it also had to have a truly collaborative culture.

I made the decision to be part of the L.E.K. family many years ago and I’ve never looked back. And I wanted to share a few reasons why I enjoy coming to work every day, and I think that you will too:

Turbocharged growth opportunities:  Quite simply, you’ll do more and learn more here. We typically have shorter cases than other firms, and most consulting staff work on projects across multiple industries. This helps you become more well-rounded and sharpens your analytical skills. Professional development is also central here – from the comprehensive training programs to the way that case teams work together every day.

Global reach:  We work with some of the largest companies in the world, so you’re well positioned for some great international experience. In fact, you can get global exposure by working on multi-national cases right from your desk. We also have a Swap program, which provides the opportunity for selected staff to work in one of our international offices on a temporary basis. Then others have transferred to an office on another continent permanently.

“Game-changing” projects:  Companies turn to us to help solve their most pressing challenges – from charting a new direction for a big pharma company to developing ways for a retailer to reinvent itself online and reach new customers. Our ideas have literally reshaped industries and helped create some of the products and services that you use regularly today.

The people:  I knew that I’d be working with smart people at L.E.K. But I never imagined that so many colleagues would also become my close friends – including some of my associate class and teammates on those cases that really tested our mettle as we helped companies redefine themselves. I think one of the reasons why so many of us have great experiences here is because we typically work from our office – not out of a suitcase, which is how some other companies operate.

So as you think about your next step after school, think about taking the path to L.E.K. It’s an exciting time to be part of our growth. If you’re like me, you’ll be glad that you did.
