ZSers are smart, energetic contributors who come from all walks of life. But even in a group as talented and diverse as ZS, not many people can say they helped design the robotic arm that helps move modules from space shuttles onto the International Space Station.

Carolyn can. She trained as an aerospace engineer in the field of space robotics and used to work for the International Space Station program, designing the controls systems for the Canadarm, a remote-controlled robotic arm.

Forecasting leader proves ZS careers defy prediction

Posted by ZS on May 19, 2017 4:27:20 PM

“I’m a home-grown ZSer,” says Judith. “I started right out of Cal [UC Berkeley] with my industrial engineering and operations research degree and have been here ever since.”

It’s not a situation she would have predicted.

Raised in Northern California, Judith was referred to ZS by a Berkeley classmate who worked for the firm. “I was happy to get in the door, and I was impressed with the people I met during the interview process,” she recalled. “I thought it was a great company, but I was naïve about the true extent of the opportunities available here.”

Judith admits that she started at ZS thinking consulting was a job she would keep for a few years until she figured out “what she wanted to do when she grew up.” That was over 16 years ago. “I didn't know then that it was the perfect place for me to build my career,” she said.

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.
