ZS Associates Named One of the Best Firms to Work For in Consulting Magazine Survey

    - ZS Associates earns high marks in job and career development categories

    EVANSTON, Ill., Sept. 11 /CNW/ -- In a recent survey of consultants from
the world's top firms, ZS Associates, a global sales and marketing consulting
firm, was named one of the industry's best employers. The company, which
employs more than 1,000 consultants in 18 offices around the world, placed
seventh on Consulting Magazine's Best Firms to Work For 2009 list.

    More than 200 companies were rated by their consultants in a variety of
categories, including company morale, training, impact of work on clients and
travel. ZS Associates placed in the top 10 in morale and in the top five on
the question, "How often do consultants feel their work has a positive impact
on clients?" Additionally, ZS' 46.6 hours of annual training is among the best
in the industry.

    "We've known for years that ZS is a great place to work. But this
recognition shows that our continuous efforts to improve for both our
employees and our clients have been successful," said ZS Managing Director
Jaideep Bajaj. "Being ranked so highly on client impact shows just how
committed our people are to being responsive and providing valuable solutions
to our clients."

    In developing the list, Consulting Magazine editors surveyed more than
10,000 people across 236 consultancies -- a record high for the survey -- and
created two sets of rankings: one for large firms that employ at least 500
consultants and another for small firms that employ between 20 and 499
consultants. ZS Associates falls into the large firm category.

    "This year, in particular, the firms on our annual Best Firms to Work For
list truly represent the profession's gold standard," said Joe Kornik, editor
in chief of Consulting Magazine. "These firms not only offered outstanding
service to their clients, but they also kept their own employees front and
center in extremely challenging and even unprecedented economic conditions.
For that they should be celebrated."

    The full Best Firms to Work For list appears in the September issue of
Consulting Magazine.
