It's Okay
Rather not say (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJune 15, 2017
There is an extreme lack of cultural diversity that also includes age. This is a great atmosphere if you are between the ages of 21 and 30. Generally, most people were nice. A few of the admins that have been there for a while were quite "clickish".
Pros
Snacks, beverages and food.
Cons
Not your typical 9-5 day.

One of the best work experiences I've had in my career
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Evanston, ILApril 3, 2017
The work culture at ZS is excellent and I felt like part of a team. Those I supported respected my time and efforts. Everyone I came in contact with was open and friendly. The company as a whole cares for its employees and wants you to succeed. I'm relocating and wish there was a ZS office I could transfer to.
Pros
Great work environment
Cons
No flexibility to work from home

Great pay but....
Human Resources (Former Employee) –  EvanstonFebruary 28, 2017
ZS seems great to work for on the consulting side. However, if you are not it is a different story. Particularly in HR, the culture is terrible. There is little consideration given for work life balance. Additionally, advancement, pay and overall treatment is based on how well management likes you and not performance. There were a number of talented, unrecognized individuals in the the department. Unfortunately, there is no recourse because management is the problem.
Pros
base pay, health insurance, social activities
Cons
management, work life balance, and lack of checks and balances

Worst company to work for!
Administrative Associate to Principals (Former Employee) –  Evanston, ILFebruary 9, 2016
Worst management style. The upper management has no idea what is going on with entry level or mid level employees. I felt discriminated by many managers. I will not recommend this company to anyone!

Work can be long and tedious but it is steady. Good place to start your career but use it as a stepping stone to something better. Nog a great place to get stuck.
