You have to demonstrate male like characteristics to be promoted. However they do allow flexibility (formal and informal).

Tough work-life balance, even though CEO is a woman, other department heads are largely male

    Maybe. It would depend on which department and area the women was working in and what stage in her career.

There aren't many opportunities to advance in this company. You will find yourself stuck and unhappy. Mostly unfulfilled.

ZS is a place where women can excel, I have worked in other industries and other consulting companies. What I can say about ZS, more than any other place I have worked in my 20 years as a professional, is that they care. They invest significantly in their employees, stress the value of always doing the right thing, and once a concern or problem is identified they make an effort to understand and resolve it. Consulting is a challenging profession no matter where you are - you go into it expecting to work long hours and deal with challenging situations, However the support at ZS makes these times seems less hard and even enjoyable.

    Of course in the world of consulting, client demands play a big part in driving your daily schedule and workload. Ebbs and flows are expected. But ZS provides the flexibility that allows you to meet these demands in a way that also allows you to meet your own personal and family needs. Working from home so I can make my mid-day doctor's appointment, leaving early so I can attend school plays and concerts and then completing work later - these are not problems to the extent I am able to respond to the requests of my clients and teams.

It was a great company to work for. They are very family-friendly. I only left, because the position/role was not the best fit for my background.

    Macy's needs to improve the hiring and training of its store management teams. Macy's is a very old-fashioned, hierarchical organization, which I believe is a factor in the company's declining performance.. Managers believe that employees in lower-level positions have little to offer in terms of identifying issues/opportunities and making recommendations for improvements. In this day and age (and with the pervasiveness of age and gender discrimination), there are many sales associates that have more better credentials (e.g., management experience, education, and skills) than those in management roles in the store. If you work in one of the stores (as opposed to a corporate job), your experience will vary depending on the skills, style, disposition, and biases of the store manager. In the Connecticut store that I worked in, the store manager is an authoritarian who manages by intimidating and belittling his employees. When he is displeased with an employee, he would openly yell at them on the store floor. He chastises employees in front of customers. Employees who have disagreed with him or have complained about his disrespectful behavior are targeted for removal or are retaliated against (e.g., not considered for promotion, receive fewer work hours). Unfortunately, other managers have followed in his footsteps. For example, one employee arrived late to work one day because her child was very ill. She was told by the manager that maybe she should think about not having any more children. So little respect for the people who work here for little pay and little opportunity for advancement. Managers who treat employees in this manner should be fired.

Consider it if you don't have children or other similar priorities that could require you to adjust your work schedule.

    There was flexibility for dropping off and picking up kids. However, there was often guilt from my supervisor that accompanied it.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. While I did enjoy working on the majority of my projects from day-to-day, my supervisor regularly sought out the opinions of the males in my department. It actually seemed like a male clique, which could be quite alienating to the females. Certain males also received preferential treatment—more one-on-one time with the head of the department, long lunches, more telecommuting days and extra praise.

There is some lag in this company when it comes to pay equity, but as we hire more women, it's getting better. So, the more women here, the more power we have.

    We follow MA state regulations, but allow parents to take up to 12 weeks unpaid even though we are not subject to FMLA.
