    Pros

    It is an amazing company to work for when you've newly entered the corporate world. It has a very college like atmosphere where most of the people are less than 25-26. It has smart and friendly people, a highly capable and respected leadership, good perks and challenging work. You are taught to take ownership right from day one. However the quality that I most like in ZSers is the innate ability to do the right thing. From something like taking ownership of a wrong delivery to something as small as cleaning up after themselves at the cafeteria in spite of there being a cleaning crew.

    Cons

    The ONLY con for me has to be the money. For the amount of work you put in, the pay package is less than desirable. And this is why I started off the review with "A great first company to work for". Because once you realize your friends are getting paid much more for much less, you'll want to look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although I said that the pay package is not very attractive, I have no advice to the management as I know that they operate within their constraints and I am sure that they've heard this complaint before. So if they haven't done anything yet, I know it's for a good enough reason.

    I leave the firm in another 2 months and 5 days and it has been the biggest pleasure to work for this amazing company. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for anything except for money. It has good people, good work, good perks and above all a good life.

    2nd round at pune office had 4 interviews: past projects+stats, personal/behavioral, cultural fit, case study presentation. I think the first interview was important here and next intervieers form their judgement base on this/ and verify that.
