What are good smaller consulting firms I should consider looking at for a move? I’m tired of the machine, but don’t want to just swap ACN out for a B4.

We’re not small anymore, but we’re growing and looking for great senior leaders. And the people who exit B4 to join ZS seem very happy with the move.


Precisely why I left Big 4 for ZS. Despite big pension nest egg aka handcuffs on the table.


Prophet ; )


I’m here 2 yrs in Marketing & Sales advisory team.

RSM has growing solid consulting practice. Try that.




What field

Manufacturing Operations - digital transformation / advanced automation / operational excellence

Does ZS work with companies to address Mfg. Issues? My background is mostly centered in the Make part of the value chain.

We have a small growing supply chain & manufacturing practice. If you have solid life sciences experience in that area, DM me and I can tell you a bit about it and can give you a few names of our leadership there.
