I worked at ZS Associates full-time for more than a year

Pros

Smart and motivated lower-mid level employees. Very structured typical "ZS" way. If you like being told exactly what to do with very little thinking involved, this is for you.

Cons

Management is super old school and stuck in the past. Analyses performed are tried and tested, lather/rince/repeat pieces that ZS has been doing for 25 years. The software they use and "sell" to other companies has not been edited in over 20 years.

Thus, no real growth for entry level applicants seeking knowledge in the modern world

    Pros

    You'll learn a vast number of tools and practice areas within a short period of time. They compensate very well.

    Cons

    Despite what they advertise, they don't care too much about work/life balance. They need mules at all levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to go the extra distance in order to keep people. Too many leave because they are frustrated with the hours and management doesn't do anything to stop them.

    Pros

    Unstructured environment, lots of room for growth, close knit teams, most importantly - very sharp people, very approachable leadership and management support

    Cons

    Overlap with India is not, everyone is a work-o-holic and expectations are already set
