I'm currently in the talk of joining ZS Associates. My industry experience (healthcare/life science) is close to five years now, with over seven years working experience in total.
However, it sounds like they are more likely bringing me in as an Associate Consultant, not a Consultant, even though my experience matches most of the job descriptions. Is it common for an experienced professional to join as an Associate Consultant at ZS? Should I even consider this opportunity since it might be a “step-down” from my current position, and might not look good in my resume?
Also, does anybody know if their levels are the same as MBB and the Big 4s?
Thanks for the help!
