New York Intern Discovers the Benefits of Team-Oriented Culture at ZS

June 11 was my first day in the ZS New York office. It also happened to be a day during which both of my project teams were attending meetings at client sites. As I thought of ways to prepare for the projects in their absence before my onboarding meetings the next day, I asked my mentor if he had any suggestions.

It was 2005 and San Francisco Principal Ammar was fresh out of school. He’d been studying engineering for several years—first in India for undergrad, and later at Texas A&M for his masters. His course work included operations research, which led him to a consulting career at ZS’s Evanston office.

Ammar started working on core sales operations projects such as sizing and structure, and gained exposure to seven or eight clients before initiating a transfer to California. His relocation--later described as the first pivotal point in his career--was not a strategic career move, but a personal decision.
