    Pros

    Lot of learning and a young company to work in

    Cons

    Company does not care about employees.
    Suddenly changed contracts from 1 month notice period to 6 month.
    Later they suddenly changed timings from 1 pm to 10 pm or something like that.

    I have been working at Mu Sigma full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will see an organisation grow..you will see it win, celebrate and move on... you will watch it lose, buck up and move on.. you will see it make mistakes, learn and move on.. you will realise why organisations are similar to organisms.. much like you

    And this comes at a cost

    Cons

    You will have moments of self doubt, you might find yourself doing things you did not sign up for, you will most definitely be clocking long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees frequently, shout at them if needed, listen patiently.. they have a lot to say.

    I worked at Mu Sigma full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great exposure to the world of analytics
    Steep learning curve and lot of opportunities to try your hand at various aspects like sales, BD, consulting
    You will develop some high level connects with your clients which again is a great learning opportunity.

    Cons

    The culture sucks big time. Treating employees with respect is an alien thing at Mu Sigma. In the last six months at least 60% of my team (onsite) left including me. It is not a place where lateral hires can expect a good growth as there is a strong bias towards folks who have been with mu-sigma since inception. The salary is a big negative but it is not something that the company tries to hide. I saw that most people who worked with others companies leave in about an year. Some of the people who joined Mu-Sigma from the clients have left in a span of few months.

    Advice to Management

    Do think about how you treat your employees. Not recognizing that they are part of your success is a big risk you are taking. The company is growing enormously and has a recognition in the industry. It is important to retain good talent without which the growth won't be stable in the long run.
