    I worked at ZS Associates full-time

    Pros

    ZSers are very smart, nice, and driven

    Cons

    Some offices have a toxic culture; for instance, if you're in the new york office, you'll see a poster that HR put up that reads 'warning this is a no whining zone!' seriously.

    Management is disingenuous and creates an 'us vs. them' environment, and can be condescending and patronizing to the people doing most of the legwork.

    (Note: there are equally positive individuals and offices, so assess on a case by case basis)

    Advice to Management

    Internal operations need to keep pace w firm growth. Employees expect fairness and standardization consistent with top consulting companies.
