Who will save IT department
Employee (Former Employee) –  ZS GlobeJune 17, 2018
Highly impacted department is the IT department. People working on the same designation for years with no scope for growth and a good increment. Long hours of work. Badly treated and high competition to save their own job due to which difference among the IT department itself.
Pros
Delivery department
Cons
Support department

Good experience for future employment
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  IllinoisJune 16, 2018
I will admit that I learned a lot from working at ZS but the pros do not outweigh the cons. In my interview i was told that everyone cares about each other and supports one another but in reality I have never worked for a more gossip-y or petty work environment (and that includes management). The people at ZS are second to none and that's definitely one of the main pros of working there but the work load is unreasonable and overwhelming.
Pros
the people
Cons
workload and work life balance

Great people to work with, but very much sink or swim
Strategy, Insights, and Planning Consultant (Current Employee) –  Princeton, NJMay 2, 2018
Very smart and talented people work there. Feedback is passive aggressive and often months after a project. Management needs to to care more about developing junior team members.
Pros
Little Travel
Cons
Low compensation, poor feedback

Stressful environment
Management Consultant (Current Employee) –  Evanston, ILApril 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
Pros
Interesting work
Cons
Poor management

Hard working
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Evanston, ILJanuary 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.
Pros
Benefits, people at work
Cons
30 minutes for lunch, extremely stressful, too many supports for 1 person

Great Culture, long hours
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Evanston, ILJanuary 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.
Pros
Culture, Benefits, Learning Experience
Cons
Long Hours, Demanding Clients, Learning Curve

Great Training With Good Advancement Opportunities
System Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJDecember 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.

Poor management and perpetuation of the same

Worst management team I've ever encountered. They fire good talent and keep lousy communicators and micro managers. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

A hectic but fruitful experience
Business Operations Associate (Former Employee) –  DelhiOctober 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.

Good start for fresh undergraduates
Business Intelligence Associate Consultant (Current Employee) –  San Mateo, CAAugust 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.
