I have been working at ZS Associates full-time for more than a year

Pros

-Excellent training and professional development
-Great culture, supportive and friendly people
-good (but not great) pay, good work/life balance (if you know how to push back)

Cons

A lot of focus on healthcare (not a Con for me but may be for some)
- Focus on sales and marketing issues - strategic as well as operational (again - good for some but may be restrictive)
- This is consulting - so wake up and face the reality - you are not going home at 5 pm everyday!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more honest during recruiting about what the job actually entails

    Pros

    Gives your solid quant and data analysis skills compared to other consulting firms

    Cons

    Formerly had good visa application program for international students, but that policy has since been cancelled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsourcing data analysts overseas is fine for cost savings, but that displaces a large amount of talented internationals who would otherwise stay and contribute to the firm for a long time.
