    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at ZS Associates as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Some Nice people
    - Good location
    - Well stocked pantry

    Cons

    -Some not-so-nice people
    -Corporate attempts at corralling everyone into being social = feels forced.
    -In many cases its the patients ruling the asylum

    Advice to Management

    Grow some. Don't be afraid to deseminate what needs to be done. Hoping and praying that someone will or won't act or behave in a particular manner will not bring resolution. You have to lead.

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

    Pros

    Lots of really smart, great people who can turn out to be really good friends as well. Generally a challenging environment where you were asked to learn a lot very quickly.

    Cons

    Pretty long hours and sometimes insensitive managers. Some of the most lucrative projects management can be really boring for the junior team members (e.g. incentive compensation administration, market research tracking reports)

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to fire low performers and spend more to get top talent.
