    I worked at ZS Associates full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    High performance culture Less time living out of suitcases than most

    Cons

    All the usual consulting crap (deal with it or don't do consulting) Some principals take credit for others ideas and spend to much time sucking up to management - not most just a few but they do well A bit of vanity / not-invested-here with the founders who haven't really updated their thinking enough.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at ZS Associates full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The core values of the organization are very strong and is a big attraction. massive growth opportunities are there in some geographies and business functions. if you are at the right place then learning is also a lot and you work on a lot of new things. exceptional place for the business consulting and business operations group.

    Cons

    The company has changed due to the growth in the number of people and lack of connect between different layers of the management. it has started to take up big tech programs which its incapable of running due to lack of tech leaders both at onshore as well as offshore. there are some exceptional tech people but the majority is from the non tech background. since majority of leadership is from the consulting background there is a lack of vision in how to run tech programs effectively as its a new area for the company. despite having highly skilled consulting leaders there is a lot that can be done at the grass roots level for tech programs. for that you need PAM members with strong tech experience.
