Boston, MA (October 6, 2017) – L.E.K. Consulting ranked first among consulting firms – and second among all companies nationwide, trailing only Google – as the best company for MBAs to work for, according to a national survey and ranking by TransparentCareer, which aggregates self-reported MBA job information, and website Poets & Quants, which covers graduate business education.

“We strive to be a workplace that attracts and retains the best talent, and it’s an honor that MBA grads from top programs recognize the qualities that set us apart,” said Peter McKelvey, president of L.E.K.’s Americas region. “This recognition validates the career experiences and opportunities available here at L.E.K.”

L.E.K. came away with an index score of 97.22 out of 100, barely trailing first-place Google, which scored 100. The ranking – based on compensation, job satisfaction and weekly hours data – was the result of a survey of 1,800 recently graduated MBAs from the top 25 business schools. The data was self-reported and generated by TransparentCareer, and the three categories of data were then analyzed by Poets & Quants.
