    I worked at ZS Associates full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You can make a lot of friends there. The flaw though is the continuously stated opinion that people there are somehow nicer than any other company. Other than that, it provides a very solid grounding in consulting processes and rigour, in line with other mainstream management consultancies.

    Cons

    Bonuses are laughable, promotion is slow and working hours are high. Brand name not strong enough to justify this personal trade-off.

    I have been working at ZS Associates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    World-class perks like an annual bonus apart from an annual hike. Free food and a beautiful office. Very good analytics and operations leadership.

    Cons

    Bad salary, even after the hike you'll end up being extorted by them due insane work hours. Leadership is super scared of using advanced technology and want to stick to SQL ways and call themselves technology greats. Promotion is all about tenure, break your bones working for them and you'll still be promoted in 2.5-3 year cycle. Very few talented people in a pond of talentless losers getting overpaid for project management, especially in technology. Join in the business consulting group or don't, you'll not have a career after ZS if you do in technology.
