I am trying to get a better idea of what life is like as a consultant at LEK Los Angeles.
Here's what I (think) I know about LEK as a firm that I'd love to hear confirmed/denied, especially in the context of working in LA (roughly in order of importance to me):
*it's almost pure strategy & PE diligence
*they don't travel nearly as /other firms
*hours were pretty brutal (80 hrs not uncommon) 2-3 years ago but have gotten better (settling more towards 60-65 w/ peaks and valleys)
*exit opps & network lag MBB but are still good
*pretty decent office culture due to staffing method
Also, I've heard the industry mix for the LA office is heavier on Tech/PE/Media (a plus for me), true or false?
Bananas for your time and insight.
