I have been working at ZS Associates full-time (more than an 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

    Great place to start or end a career -- in between, not so much

    Former Employee - Associate Consultant in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    I worked at ZS Associates full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    -Compensation could be higher -- but the business is run extraordinarily efficiently so I see why it's not (ie: the market doesn't demand that a higher salary be given, so the partners are happy nickle and diming when they can)
    -The firm is growing rapidly, and the culture IS changing -- a lot of experienced hires = a lot of people who don't understand ZS way. Specifically, the LA office has a HUGE deloitte influence and it has fundamentally changed the way the office is run, the culture of the people there, and what the job entails... These are strong negative influences and while they have not changed every aspect of what it is to be a ZSer, they necessarily will if this trend is not reversed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid at all costs the big firm feel and culture while you can -- ZS is a great place to be and I am very pleased I started my career there, but I felt the tides of change coming when I left and am happy I did. Less Deloitte / Accenture at all costs!
