    I worked at ZS Associates full-time (Less than a year)


    - salary (but given the hours and stress level, I would say the salary is actually low...) - the ability to frequently work from home but after working there, I would say there are NO PROS that would ever make it worth it


    - poor organization structure (working on multiple projects make it very easy for principals to take advantage of your time...basically make you into a work horse) - poor work output (I was embarrassed by the quality of work we produced for clients and how it was presented) - minimal knowledge base (while the company might be good at pharma sales forces analysis they have little knowledge and skills elsewhere) - disturbing company culture (I watched multiple principals just scream at associates and give no clear direction) - if you think and have original ideas and any form of creative skills, they will try to crush it out of you. all they want is people to do work, they way it has always been done.

    Advice to Management

    - Respect the talents of new hires, especially those entering at a higher level. I tried multiple times to bring my expertise from ACTUAL (top 5) consulting firms that I had worked at, only to have higher ups shut me down then present my ideas/work as their own... - Improve communication and be honest to employees (I was blatantly lied to during my interview process and when discussing my offer, but I did not know this until after I started) - Invest in employees (1 week training that goes over how to write an email is NOT helpful) - Train management in how to lead and how to be supportive - if you say you are a real consulting firm, BE a real consulting firm... - Learn that your way is not always the best way...when I asked for why certain things were done, I was often told 'it's the ZS way' with no explanation...this is NOT a reason to do things - Get real company goals and standards..."Do the right thing" is not an informative internal goal and the ambiguity is obvious and shows
