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.

In celebration of Mother's Day this year, the Women's Leadership Initiative at ZS, a group dedicated to offering respect, support, flexibility and connections to women, asked ZS moms to share what makes ZS a great place to work.

Golden Gate Bridge is the perfect backdrop for women’s gathering centered on connections

Posted by ZS on May 9, 2017 2:00:00 PM

Sausalito, a small town just outside San Francisco, was the perfect backdrop for a recent event sponsored by ZS’s Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI). That’s because the rare cloud-free sky offered crystal clear views of the Golden Gate Bridge, and “building bridges” was the central theme of this year’s two-day summit.

Each year the WLI, a group dedicated to supporting women in building successful, long-term consulting careers, brings our firm’s women together to discuss topics of particular interest to women, share stories and best practices and gather inspiration from peers.
