Principal (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 7, 2018
Been at ZS now for eight years and voukdng have made a better jump to gain the kind of knowledge she experience I have today. Although the hours can be stressful, they truly look after employees and value them. The work culture and people are some of the best in the industry and salaries too.
Management Consultant (Current Employee) – Evanston, IL – April 4, 2018
Interesting work but can be stressful without much appreciation for the efforts.
Almost all work is healthcare in areas where ZS has already operated; managers are afraid to try new approaches to similar problems and are afraid to push back on clients, often resulting in mismanaged projects
Manager (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – February 25, 2018
Phenomenal self-awareness, culture, and corporate vision Rapidly growing consultancy striving to grow fast enough to keep up with client demand as it progresses from a leader in commercial excellence (strategy/operations/technology) to a leader in commercial strategy Strong focus on company culture, employment engagement, and professional development Long hours balanced by minimal travel requirements
Weekly office events, flexibility to work from home, high growth, positive and inclusive culture
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Evanston, IL – January 17, 2018
At ZS you must be willing to work hard, very hard. Administrative assistants have quite a few people they support. In some instances, they might have up to 17 people at one time to support. Some admins have complained about being spread too thin. However, the company is very aware of how difficult it can be, and the culture is very collaborative.
You learn to manage time more effectively as you are extremely busy all the time. Prioritization is also extremely important, and working at ZS has made my prioritization skills that much more honed.
Benefits, people at work
30 minutes for lunch, extremely stressful, too many supports for 1 person
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Evanston, IL – January 12, 2018
A great place to work for someone right out of college. There is a community feel and it is easy to make friends with your colleagues. On the downside, you are at the whim of the client, and if this entails working nights and weekends, so be it. Some weeks can be very stressful, while others very light.
Great Training With Good Advancement Opportunities
System Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – December 14, 2017
One of the strengths of ZS Associates is their intense training. You start with a 2 week program for all new associates, and then they have training seminars for a variety of topics, on a regular basis. All associates are able to use this knowledge to advance to the highest desired level of their ability. The training program is very instrumental in bringing you up to speed on all of their different product offerings.
Business Operations Associate (Former Employee) – Delhi – October 17, 2017
ZS was a lot of fun, but it used to get pretty hectic. There were many days when we had to stay back for 15-16 hours. Overall, there is a lot to learn from and the people around you are very helpful. It was a great experience for me.
Business Intelligence Associate Consultant (Current Employee) – San Mateo, CA – August 1, 2017
ZS gives you lots of responsibilities in a very less time, so you will have enormous opportunities to learn, grow and excel. For the very same reason, it is hard to sustain for more than a few years because of the imbalanced work-life. As per my observations, Business technology and business operations track are heavy on losing work life balance owing to the early morning client meetings and late night off-shore calls. Business Consulting teams have a slightly better work-life in comparison.
Apart from this one small problem, ZS is a great place. It offer great compensation, have lots of fun activities and has a great culture. Politics is rarely found within ZS, which makes it a good place to work.
throughout my career in ZS, i got to work with smart people. The work-life is a little hard to maintain but overall the learning curve is quite steep. I was entrusted with a lot of responsibilities very early in my career which did help me grew a lot.
Rather not say (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 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".
Desktop Support (Former Employee) – San Mateo, CA – May 21, 2017
I had been a temp here for four months and have learned much and also easily adapted to the companies friendly and hardworking culture. The IT Manager I worked with was very helpful and to get me up and running asap. I also enjoyed the work I did and the fast pace of it, because the time flew by.
One of the best work experiences I've had in my career
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Evanston, IL – April 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.
