Good growth but very poor work life balance

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The growth is very very steep. You get to work on diverse problems of Pharma industries. But the work life balance is really terrible. Sometimes the work hours stretch to more than 13 to 14 hours

Productive & Fun Place

ZS is a great company to work for because of the challenges and learning at my job, supportive leadership, great visibility, and fair pay structure. It's been close to 5 years of my stint with the company. I have no plans of moving out of the company.


Free Lunches, Cab facilities, great working environment, learning opportunities

High work, High pressure, Highly demanding, High growth, High stress

Learning was quite exponential to efforts. Growth is good as it is obvious if you survive for 2 years, then you can work at next level too. Tremendous pressure of work and mind involved. High requirement of client dealing, problem solving. Working hrs of 13+ every day sometimes night out.Great culture, people will treat you well, exit is smooth, leaves are not asked.

Great Peers you would work with, great culture. Only con would be the work-life balance

Great Exposure to Pharmaceutical Domain with all the top clients. Work-life balance is a point of contention but overall one learns a lot while being here

too much pressure and no work life balance

work is fast-paced and no room for learning new things a typical day is around 9 hrs and sometimes it goes to 12-13 hrs and not even one-half gap between projects. as soon as you finish a project, the next project will be already waiting with priority tag


Free food

Fun Workplace

Good amount of learning. Depends on the project you are staffed on. People are helpful and will always be ready to help you whenever you are stuck. A typical day at work looks like having a daily meeting in the morning to plan the activities of the day. Since its a consultancy company we have meetings with clients also.

productive an d fun place

A typical work day at ZS can be either of the1. A normal day(6-7 hrs of work)On a normal day workload is manageable and you get to interact with all groups of people. People are very friendly here at ZS.2.Great company to work with. Great learning. Great pay and benefits. Only trade off is the work life balance. Didn't feel any politics while I worked there.Good place to start your career with.3.Good company to work and learn new tech stack. Lacks work life balance and unrealistic expectations from employees. Open work culture where anyone can approach leadership for guidance

Poor Work life balance And Worst project management.

If you are looking at this review to know how is the life at ZS then I'd recommend you NOT to go with this one. Reason behind is the POOR work life balance, worst Project Management. Not at all people centric organization and no empathy for Employees.


Free Cab


Long working hours 15-16 hours ( Still it looks lesser for your boss), They would call you at 1-2 AM night to start working. Bad culture.

Fun workplace

Good for learning, you work with best pharma clients and sharpest of the brains. Work life balance is an issue but overall a great company to work for.

Worst work life balance

Should hire enough people in a team, so that you have back ups in place to take off. Stressful situations and life. Should respect mental and physical health




15 to 18 hours

No Work-life and Decent culture

Being very honest I did 2 projects there and then I left!! And both of them were very messed up.! 16 hour a day was very common for me! No one cared about my mental or physical health. I was told to quit gym. In all I am glad I left the org.
