As a well-traveled veteran, Glenn has lived his work

Posted by ZS on Apr 21, 2017 2:00:00 PM

Several years ago Glenn, now a principal in ZS’s Chicago office, left his suburban Chicago hometown to pursue a degree in electrical engineering from the United States Military Academy at West Point. Upon graduation, he became an intelligence officer in the U.S. Army and spent seven years stationed in Japan and the Middle East.

After leaving the Army, Glenn worked as an engineer in the oil industry, a job that gave him the opportunity to continue doing something he had grown to love—traveling the world. He worked for months at a time in places like France, Singapore and Africa.

Finally ready to return to his roots and looking for a new challenge, Glenn enrolled in Northwestern University’s Master of Management and Manufacturing program, a dual degree program between Kellogg and the engineering school.

Princeton ZSers empower young women to stick with STEM at #LEADLIKEAGIRL

Posted by ZS on Apr 14, 2017 4:00:00 PM

ZSers from our Princeton office proudly sponsored and participated in Stuart Country Day School’s #LEADLIKEAGIRL conference, an event that brought more than 900 young women grades K-12, mentors, parents and teachers together to empower the next generation of female “risk-takers and changemakers”.

The conference’s mission—to support young women studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics—was near and dear to that of ZS’s own Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI). ZS’s analytics-based approach means we recruit heavily from the STEM fields—where females have been historically underrepresented—so we strive to empower women who pursue them.

Sign On for the Work, Stay for the Culture: Sandra’s Story

Posted by ZS on Apr 7, 2017 2:00:00 PM

I joined ZS as an MBA summer intern in 2000. When I was looking for summer opportunities, I actually didn't want to do consulting. I had worked in consulting before and didn't think I wanted to do it for the rest of my life. I loved the job—the work, advising clients, working in teams—but didn't like the lifestyle and having to be consistently away from home. I was married with a 2-year-old daughter, and having a good work/life balance was really important to me. I ran into ZS while going through the summer process and it suddenly seemed like this magical place where I might be able to “have it all.” I could do the work that I loved but not be away from home so much. I decided to try it out and saw for myself that it was true. Even if I travelled, there were lots of opportunities to help manage that aspect of my job. I worked hard but I enjoyed it, and I wasn't always away from home as I had been in my previous consulting position.
