I have been working at ZS Associates full-time (more than an year)

Pros

-Excellent training and professional development
-Great culture, supportive and friendly people
-good (but not great) pay, good work/life balance (if you know how to push back)

Cons

A lot of focus on healthcare (not a Con for me but may be for some)
- Focus on sales and marketing issues - strategic as well as operational (again - good for some but may be restrictive)
- This is consulting - so wake up and face the reality - you are not going home at 5 pm everyday!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more honest during recruiting about what the job actually entails

    I worked at ZS Associates full-time

    Pros

    Compensation is adequate
    Evanston is a nice location

    Cons

    A very restrictive work environment that focuses on perceived productivity over actual results (8:30am -5:30pm office hours at a minimum, working remotely highly discouraged, antiquated review process and poor work-life balance are several examples).

    Culture is productivity driven and does little to promote respect between employees or encourage team cohesion.

    Poor companywide vision with different consultants and departments making decisions in silos instead of as a unified company vision.

    Consultants and upper management agree to client engagements without understanding what resources the company can provide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more effort into developing a strong culture focused on employee growth and achievement. Be flexible in your demands of employees and when extra work is required of an employee acknowledge it. Put as much energy into maintaining employee job satisfaction as you do their productivity.
