Interested to hear all opinions, but particularly from those in the industry. (Boozer, you around?)
Received offers from BAH and LEK and am trying to make a decision. I'm leaning pretty strongly towards LEK based on perceived cultural fit (although to be perfectly honest, "fit" before you've worked at a firm seems very hokey to me). My doubts with LEK are re: work hours / type of work. MC in general is a a pretty time-intensive job, and it seems that LEK people work maybe an three to four more hours per week than at BAH, which would, for me at least, be offset by not having to travel. My other concern is that LEK consultants are expected to be in the number-crunching mold moreso than at BAH, and there are less opportunities to develop "soft" skills. There is also a somewhat smaller concern that the BAH brand is stronger outside of consulting, but LEK should be fine for my aspirations.
Opinions on the merits and de-merits or each firm relative to each other?
