Pros

+ Brand Recognition within Healthcare
+ Smart and helpful people (at all levels)
+ Right amount of flexibility
+ Interesting work, if you take the initiative

Cons

- Work life balance (if you dont know how consulting is)
- Very Sr. Management is still sometime stuck in old school thinking
- Variable mix of managers/Principals

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have seen a lot of positive changes in the company in last 12 months - defined vision, more structure, emphasis on branching out of pharma and setting up industry standard expectation from management group. Keep this going.
However some of the initiatives have a short outlook, dont be penny wise pound foolish.

    I have been working at ZS Associates

    Pros

    Office culture and centricity is great - most of my projects have been done without me having to travel all over. Also really appreciate that the principals are practioners; they really know their stuff and are not just a sales force.

    Cons

    Hours can be long and unpredictable. Some risk of being locked in more singular industry (Pharma), although that seems to be changing. This is a place where there are a lot of really analytical people - some evidence of analysis/paralysis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have seen lots more communication on vision and strategy in the last year - great!! Please keep it coming and expand it. Be more aware of work/life balance challenges.

    Pros

    1. Smart and humble people to work with

    3. I can get work life balance when I need it

    Cons

    1. You mant get as much exposure to industries outside pharma

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to needs of senior managers in the company.
    Consider additional incentives for employees who innovate to explicitly encourage it
