Is ZS’ recruiting process always so disjointed? I get 1-2 calls a year that always go nowhere because my current salary is too high (it’s really not).

When you say your salary is not too high, what do you mean? Is it in line with what ZS pays for the level you would potentially apply for? I will say ZS can be really bad about matching skill set to the right practice area which leads to a premature rejection or interviews with the wrong people. That being said the recruiter who reached out to me was spot on. After one convo she actually recommended that I apply for a higher position, which I landed. What type of work do you do at D?

I went from Consultant to Consultant between firms, but it was not at all a lateral move because ZS doesn't have a senior consultant role. I can see how there may be a mismatch in skillsets as you'd be coming in as an experienced hire expected to perform at a high level right away meaning that you could have Manager skills in one area, and Consultant skills in another for example. Do you have Pharma experience? When you say digital strategy is that CRM design (in basic terms), digital capabilities initiatives? Trying to provide some insight as to what might be going on here.

Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.
