I worked at ZS Associates full-time (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 Management

Nothing particular that I can think of.
