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

    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.

    I worked at Mu Sigma full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will get to learn a lot if you're starting your career with Mu Sigma. Plus the average age of employees is something like 22-23. So it's a pretty energetic company. You will get introduced to client fast and start talking up as well pretty quickly. The work life balance or long working hours are totally dependent upon which project you land on. I initially landed in a pilot project and had to work day and night off for half a year. But after it, I have been part of mostly chill teams where from past 2 years at least I haven't stayed and worked for more than 8-9 hours. So it all depends upon project to project.

    Cons

    Again, long working hours if your luck is bad.
    No work from home.
    The 3 years bond if you're joining out of college.
    You have to start leading team from 1.5-2 years onwards. It doesn't matter whether you're ready or even if you want to. The lack of experience on floor forces you to take that role up by your manager.
    Similarly, after 3 years completion you have to become manager regardless you want to or not.
    Preferences are always given to home grown managers or AL rather than lateral (this was an advantage for me).

    Pros

    Is at the exciting juncture between being a startup and an established company. So you'll get many opportunities but still have a system to fall back upon. Lot of your teammates will be around your age which makes engaging with peers fun and exciting.

    Cons

    Management likes experimenting with company policies and direction, which may compromise your own personal life. For example, work hours tend to go on till 10, so if you have a family and spending time with them is important to you, then this might not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Quite frankly, the skills developed at Mu Sigma are attractive to other companies who offer more lucrative salaries and compensation. It doesn't make sense to me that you spend time training people, but create an environment where most of them can't wait to get out after their three year bond is over.
