Boston, MA (September 14, 2017) – L.E.K. Consulting is among the 10 best management consulting firms to work for, according to the newly released 2018 Vault Consulting 50. The ranking is based on a survey of approximately 9,000 consultants at more than 60 firms in North America.

As in previous years, L.E.K. was rated highly by employees for its quality of life, the international opportunities it offers, and the interesting and complex challenges it lets employees address.

“It’s an honor to be recognized again this year by Vault’s Consulting 50 for providing our people with outstanding professional experiences,” said Peter McKelvey, President of L.E.K. Consulting’s Americas region. “Much of the credit for our strong ranking as a place to work goes to our clients, who look to us to help them meet challenging business goals and develop solutions for the future.”

Here’s what L.E.K staff said about the firm:

  • "Although there isn't much travel, L.E.K. provides the opportunity to work in foreign countries through our swap program where associates and consultants can swap offices with somebody in the same role for six months."
  • "Formal and informal mentorship provide employees with great resources in navigating a career at L.E.K. Managers; partners and core services teams are extremely accessible."
  • "We have been operating in a virtually sold-out environment the entire time I have been here. We have strong talent at the MD group, and a tremendously talented group in the Manager cohort [the near-term prospects for MD]."
  • "L.E.K. is a true strategy and management consulting firm where you get to spend your time working with C-level clients on problems/projects that impact the entire business. The people you work with are going to be extremely smart and ambitious and that, coupled with the nature of the work, is going to push you to learn more than you would working at other firms."

Vault is a provider of information and career advice to professionals in the consulting industry. The Vault Consulting 50 is based on employee responses to questions about firm culture, work-life balance, job satisfaction, compensation and business outlook.
