—Consulting magazine and Vault acknowledge ZS’s continued commitment to culture, growth and balance—


Evanston, Ill. – Sept. 12, 2018 – ZS recently earned two prestigious honors celebrating its workplace culture – placement on Consulting magazine’s Best Places to Work For list and ranking on the Vault Consulting 50. Both ratings rely on feedback from employees, provided as part of extensive and anonymous surveys. Vault’s external survey also includes input from consultants across the industry.


“This recognition confirms ZS is one of the best places to grow and succeed in a consulting career,” said ZS Managing Director Chris Wright. “Continued placement on these lists verifies that we’re still on the right path.”


The results mark back-to-back years that ZS is featured by Consulting and the fourth consecutive year to make Vault’s list. The firm ranked 15th and 25th on the two respective lists. Again this year, both Consulting and Vault issued ZS high marks for its culture.


“Culture is the true standout at ZS,” Wright said. “It’s built around trust and people, and we’re very protective of it because we care a lot about it – our extraordinary people, our flat structure and our ability to make an immediate impact for clients.”


ZS takes pride in ensuring its people have the freedom to chart their own paths, tap into their entrepreneurial spirits and explore the areas of the business that interest them the most. It’s a way of working that attracts and enables talent to work creatively and innovate. Whether it’s their first day or their second decade at ZS, each person’s expertise matters when it comes to making an impact for ZS and its clients.


The recent accolades also acknowledged the valuable work opportunities, compensation, prestige and work-life balance enjoyed by ZSers.


“Despite changes within our firm, within our clients’ organizations and within the industries we work in, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed: our optimistic, friendly culture,” Wright said. “We depend on a collaborative environment, we have each other’s backs and we don’t let hierarchy stand in the way. We work shoulder to shoulder at all levels of the business to help our clients and their customers thrive.”
