    Great Work Culture

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits, positive working environment, very focused on achieving a proper work/life balance. Very smart and motivated individuals in upper management. Strong growth opportunities in new industries. Exciting company to work for right now.

    Cons

    Typical consulting work hours but nothing crazy. Every now and then you might get a 60, 70+ hour work week but overall very well balanced and the senior leadership does a good job at not trying to overwhelm you. Also, ZS is very well established in healthcare but is still growing in other industries. If you’re interested in starting as a generalist with a variety of projects in different industries, the opportunities at ZS might be slightly harder to come by compared to larger consulting groups like MBB or Big 4.
