It's not the policies which make flex work, it is the people. And there are great people at ZS

No matter what they tell you about flexibility, a slow week is 60-65 hours in consulting. If you can balance that with your other commitments, then great.

    Maybe. There are a lot of "It depends moments" that are great when they exist, but tough not miss when they don't. Whether or not you have more or less of these moments is based on the industry/function that you are assigned. They have flexible work, but it depends on the project, the schedule, the leadership, etc. etc etc. You often change projects at least once per year in large commercial work and it's tough to adjust your life to these ebbs and flows, whether you are a mother or not. For example, some clients are all about face-to-face and it can be very hard and tedious leaving work that's not a fit for you.

Women and men seem to be valued equally and are compensated in a very logical and fair manner. My only concern is that if women are not confident enough to write about their achievements for their performance reviews, they may fall through the cracks (a girl's gotta lean in!). Accenture works to offset these issues by pairing you with mentors, career counselors, and other resources. They also just set a goal to have a company with 50% women by 2050, which is pretty great.

    Flexibility is wildly dependent on the role and the managers you have. Overall most managers are very flexible, but certain client projects and deadlines can require you to travel 100% or spend long hours at work regardless of the desires of the Accenture managers and team. If you have a family this can be difficult, but the company does provide benefits to offset these issues, including paid maternity/paternity leave, breast milk shipping for travelers, childcare discounts, etc. The hours can be negotiated to an extent; often Fridays are worked remotely since many people do travel for work (a common model is that consultants fly to, and stay at, the client site Mon-Thurs and work from a home office on Friday). To give an example of a flexible schedule: I had a co-worker who was living in the west coast and working in the east coast. She negotiated to spend a week working remotely every other month to get a break from the long red-eye flights. I've also heard of some mothers working half days for half pay but not all clients will be okay with this.
