Hear about their ZS journeys below.

How Vanessa Found Strength in Numbers at ZS

Posted by ZS on Oct 2, 2019 10:39:18 AM

After spending three years working for a large consulting firm, I began yearning for something different – a firm with a strong sense of community where I could see the broad impact of my individual contributions. That’s when I found ZS. Since joining, I’ve focused on quantitative market research in the pharmaceutical industry – working directly with clients and impacting their business decisions. I love working in ZS’s Boston office – it feels like home when you can come to the office and everyone knows you by name. People learn who you are as a person, what it’s like to work with you and what you value.

Sneak Peek Into a Day in the Life for This New York Intern

Posted by ZS on Sep 26, 2019 2:07:13 PM

ZS is a firm known for its great people, supportive culture and, of course, amazing food and snacks. But have you ever wondered how a typical day in the life of a ZS intern unfolds? You’re in luck, because I’m here to bring you the inside scoop. 

8:30 a.m. – I leave my apartment and walk to ZS’s New York office. As I take in the scenery of Madison Square Park, I use this moment of calmness to mentally prepare for the day.

9 a.m. – After arriving in the office and brewing myself a cup of tea, I check-in with the associate I’m working with on one of my projects. We outline the problem statement and identify pain points where we can introduce solutions to the client. I then synthesize notes from stakeholder meetings and update our deliverable deck with the new insights collected.

12 p.m. – My mentor and I grab lunch at a nearby restaurant to catch up. She’s currently an associate consultant and even interned here before accepting a full-time position. She’s been a great resource and support system during my internship, offering her perspectives on ZS’s culture and post-grad life.

Toronto Intern Finds Support and Her Personal Brand at ZS

Posted by ZS on Sep 18, 2019 3:33:08 PM

During my summer internship in ZS’s Toronto office, I was surprised how ZSers are willing to put aside their own work to help someone else learn. I was excited to see a project through from beginning to end to get a firsthand look at the life of a consultant. My project was challenging and surrounded me with thought-provoking discussions and real-time learnings. As a novice in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, my team was always willing to sit down with me to discuss my questions – and if they didn’t have the answer, they always knew someone who would. Even as an intern, my inputs were valued by my team, which gave me a true sense of ownership in the project and deliverables.
