Boston, MA  September 22, 2016  L.E.K. Consulting is among the 10 best management consulting firms to work for, according to the newly released 2017 Vault ranking of the top 50 consulting firms in North America (the Vault Consulting 50).

L.E.K. was rated highly by employees and ranked particularly high in terms of the firm’s overall business outlook and the international opportunities it offers its professionals.

“We are grateful for this notable ranking and attribute it to our highly valued clients, who entrust us to help them meet significant and complex business challenges, and to our people, who stand out by virtue of their dedication, intellectual curiosity and rigor,” said Peter McKelvey, President of L.E.K. Consulting’s Americas region. “This distinguished recognition validates the career experience and opportunities at L.E.K. through the firm’s Careers with Impact programs and initiatives.”

Vault is a provider of information and career advice to professionals in the consulting industry. The Vault’s ranking is based on employee responses regarding firm culture, quality of life, career development, compensation and business outlook. The 2017 Consulting 50 is based on a survey of 17,000 consultants.

Here is what employees said about L.E.K.:

  • "L.E.K.'s greatest asset is its people. Colleagues provide immense support to individuals at all levels of the organization and, by working side by side with smart and driven people, L.E.K. employees find constant opportunities for professional development."
  • "L.E.K.'s SWAP program (a six month exchange to a domestic or international office) is a highly unique and advantageous career development opportunity. Associates have the opportunity to travel and work abroad, cross-pollinating ideas and best practices across offices."
  • "We are smaller than other top firms, and associates build personal relationships with upper management almost immediately. L.E.K. offers the feel and culture of a start-up, but with the resources and opportunities of a large, global firm."
  • "At L.E.K. the best training comes on the job, from your peers. Luckily at L.E.K. we have a smart, thoughtful group of people that care about the development of others and the firm. L.E.K. is a place where your team, peer group, and neighbor sitting next to you are all willing to teach and guide."
  • "L.E.K. is experiencing rapid and sustained growth across all of its practices with no signs of stopping. One of the biggest challenges is to hire enough associates to keep up with the rate at which we are selling projects."
