I have been working at ZS Associates as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Provides its interns with great exposure to the world of consulting, especially in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries

Cons

Multi-project staffing model can be grueling at times, but this is also what provides ZS employees with so much experience in such a short time.

Advice to Management

None.

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

    Pros

    Great work life balance
    Very interesting industry to focus on
    Associates are some of the most intelligent and talented people in the industry

    Cons

    Projects can get repetitive as the same approach is often applied to a variety of different problems.
    HR and other support organizations do not achieve the same high standards of competency as the professional services side.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that all parts of the organization are aiming to be best in class - it may mean having to cut ties with some legacy people who have been around since the early days.

    I have been working at ZS Associates full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and great people. Teams are strong. Managers treat you fairly well for the most part. Diverse teams.

    Cons

    Work life balance stinks a bit, because there are certainly weekly calls with India. Some times the early morning or the late evening gets in the way. Benefits could be a bit better.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire more people here in the US, and higher quality candidates in India.
