    I have been working at ZS Associates full-time

    Pros

    An amazing place to work with the right kind of work hard and play hard culture and one of the best people and minds in the healthcare industry

    Cons

    There was no downside to working at ZS. Like any established there is always something that the company could actively work to improve and for me a better work-life balance may have been an aspect that seemed important

    Pros

    - You're given an outstanding amount of responsibility early in your career. You'll thrive I f you're the type of person who takes the bull by the horns. - Great culture. The Toronto office is filled with smart, collaborative, and all-around good people who care about you. - Flexible hours and work arrangements; they know you work hard, so managers don't care if you need to work from home or come in late - Fractional staffing means you get a lot of exposure in a short amount of time (~25 projects across 11 clients in 2 years) - Meritocracy - You get smart, fast - You can manage personal commitments if you make them a priority for yourself. Leadership wants you to have a life outside of the office. - Minimal travel - The firm has a great history of growth and is expected to continue that way for the foreseeable future (they are actually actively trying to control the amount of growth to a reasonable level so that the culture is not negatively impacted)

    Cons

    - Typical consulting hours; it ebbs and flows, but expect 50 billable hours per week as a norm - A lot of work is strategic, but some isn't. You need to link up with managers who like you so that you can get the projects you want (again, tyical consulting) - Doesn't have MBB branding - If you are not interested in healthcare, this may not be the place for you (70% of work is healthcare related)
