Mentoring Moments: How David Uses Collaboration to Grow

Posted by ZS on Aug 25, 2017 3:50:10 PM

ZS is known for having a welcoming culture with collaboration at its core. For business consultant David, the tight, collaborative bond shared among ZSers became clear during the interview process.

Halfway through his second interview, the fire alarm went off in the building, forcing the entire Toronto office to evacuate. While they waited, David had the unique chance to talk to and get to know ZSers in a more informal setting.

Just like in his client work, the soon-to-be ZSer turned an unexpected twist into an opportunity – and made a positive impression.

Namita’s path from politics to principal

Posted by ZS on Aug 17, 2017 10:00:00 AM

One day, 20-year-old Namita picked up the phone, called the White House and confidently asked to speak with someone on the President’s Council of Economics. To her surprise, she was transferred to an intern advisor. The unpaid internship she landed led to a fulltime position after she graduated from college, and her experience, she says, is what ultimately led her to ZS.

Hoping to find a broader business application for her skills beyond government, Namita began attending business school at Duke University and discovered consulting. When she asked fellow MBA candidates where they had interned, a number of them said ZS. “I remember thinking ‘I really like all these ZS people. I need to know more about this company!’,” she said.

After 20 Years, Jeanne Found Career Freedom at ZS

Posted by ZS on Aug 10, 2017 11:00:00 AM

I joined ZS as a principal two years ago, and it has been one of the best career decisions I’ve made. It was ZS's entrepreneurial spirit that drew me in. I told ZS what I wanted to do and the team said, “Great. How can we help?” I was given the freedom to chart my own path and build a practice—all focused on the things I love to do.

What I've realized since joining, however, is that ZS's culture is so much more than just entrepreneurial. Having worked in consulting for the past 20 years, I know when I’ve found a place that’s truly supportive and collaborative. ZS has a spirit of collaboration with no parallel. In lots of ways, I'm doing similar work to what I've done in the past, but it's the internal piece that’s really different. At other firms, I’ve felt that we were always on our own, working to bring in business and deliver it. It was a race for revenue. Here it's completely different. It's highly supportive and collaborative, and we’re all genuinely focused on doing the right thing.

Technically speaking with Niroop

Posted by ZS on Aug 9, 2017 12:15:43 PM

Principal Niroop has always been a “tech guy”. After spending two years as a software engineer at large company, he began seeking a job at a startup where his contributions could have a more tangible impact. He wanted something smaller, and he got exactly what he wished for.

After a friend sent Niroop a job opening at ZS’s newly opened Pune office, he applied and quickly went from working at one of the world’s largest tech companies to our then 40-person Capability and Expertise Center in India.
