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

Pros

Competitive salary, some interesting work, nature of the work enables to stay confident in face of the client as long as the consulting project is within the comfort zone of the company's core expertise.

Cons

Employees not trained to think beyond the processes repeated many times across many projects. Engineering people dominate management and limited promotion opportunities for non-quant background.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nothing particular that I can think of.

    I worked at ZS Associates as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    People are amazingly friendly and nice. Most of the principals have their doors open and you can walk in and talk to them at any time.
    Project work varies and project leaders will usually give you a lot of freedom to take on the project.

    Cons

    The work may become mundane and repeat in some cases
    Focused on Pharmaceuticals in some of the major offices but this varies depending on the location of the office
