I'm a UK undergraduate who's been fortunate enough to receive offers for Associate positions at LEK, Strategy& Corporate and Accenture (all London office). I'd love to hear from anyone who has a perspective on the relative merits of starting out at each of these firms.
1. I've heard LEK has a reputation for very long hours, and little client engagement. Is this true?
2. What are the usual directions that people take after a couple of years at each of these places?
3. How are each of these names viewed relative to each other in terms of brand power? Does LEK have a stronger name in the UK (vs. USA for example)?
Thanks very much!
