Not true. Personally know a few PhDs working at ZS

Definitely have a bunch of PHD colleagues at ZS, to your point though other firms may value that degree initially more than ZS in terms of entry pay level...but I wouldn’t say we don’t value it as a skill set long term

I’m in our pipeline strategy group (an area where you can easily put your life science skills to use). We’re growing fast and actively looking to expand our team, including PhDs. Feel free to DM if you want to chat more.

PhDs with limited relevant experience come in as Associate Consultants in the US. MBAs come in as consultants. There is no lack of preference for phds. In fact a third of senior leaders have PhDs and no MBAs. To compare salaries of the two levels check out Glassdoor and your preferred city.

Depends on the project but generally yes. ACs generally do as well but again depends on the project. Remember Glassdoor ranges are not just starting salaries so starting base for C maybe lower but total comp def higher than 160
