Dynamic Teams and ZS Culture Made for a Great Summer in Toronto

Posted by ZS on Sep 27, 2018 11:14:38 AM

One of the first things I noticed during my internship at ZS this summer was the inherent determination ZSers have to learn and improve at whatever they’re doing—from the way my team members approached their project work, to our summer event on the Toronto Islands where we spent an exciting afternoon paddle boarding and doing team-building activities.

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

Posted by ZS on Sep 19, 2018 5:04:16 PM

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. What I expected in return were a few topics to research at my desk. Instead, I received an extensive email with project materials and detailed suggestions on how to begin preparing. This was the first of many moments during my experience this summer that showed me that the people—and their willingness to help one another—make ZS a great place to work.

I’ve made a lot of good memories during my summer at ZS in the San Francisco office.

Posted by ZS on Aug 10, 2018 10:00:00 AM

I’ve had an unconventional summer as a ZS intern, to say the least. During my six weeks in the Philadelphia office, I’ve worked on eight different projects spanning from qualitative market research to analysis-heavy modeling—compiling interview summaries, deducing market sizes, aligning sales forces and teaching an artificial intelligence model how to behave. Throughout my ever-changing project work, one thing has remained constant: my love and appreciation for the people I work with

Midwest Interns and Mentors Play Kayak “Bumper Cars” Along the Chicago River

Posted by ZS on Aug 7, 2018 3:16:21 PM

At the end of July, Chicago and Evanston ZS interns and mentors marked their calendars “OOO” (Out Of Office) and spent a beautiful afternoon kayaking on the Chicago River. The group gathered for a quick tutorial and safety demonstration before jumping in their kayaks and embarking on a unique historical tour of Chicago. Many interns elected to take a tandem kayak with their mentors—associates or associate consultants who served as informal advisers (and lunch buddies) for interns over the summer.
