    Good learning platform for freshers, but employees are overworked

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    Pros- learning environment is good for freshers
    - Senior management is really good; always eager to help
    - HR practices are now improving
    -

    Cons- Low salary & compensation benefits
    - Employees should be more careful and keep eyes and ears open ; some politics do take place
    - Job can get boring if you are stuck in an account for quite long; always pressurize manangers to change accounts afters 4-5 months
    - A lot of stress; you will probably end up being a heavy smoker or drinker ; Please avoid all these influences which are very prevalent among employees' after-work life

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior managements should be more open to employees about the background politics

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place for learning. No work life balance but as long as you are a geek, there is no problem in that.

    Trainee Decision Scientist (Current Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsYou get to learn a lot. You are given responsibilities at pretty early stage itself which always keeps you on your toes and helps you express yourself in a better way

    ConsLong working hours, deadlines and less salary

    Advice to Senior ManagementCan you please hike the salary?If you can't, then atleast give some incentives

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Learning and growth, but less pay

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsThere is a lot of exposure, the learning curve is very good and there are a lot of opportunities

    ConsSalary is the main disadvantage. Also, the new people joining have to be trained better

    Not for a conscientious person

    Certified Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsIntime is 9.30 to 10 pm. But you can leave anytime during the day as long as you finish your work. Most of the time, no one will notice if you disappear for a few hours. Most people take long lunch/snack breaks.
    Saturdays are free as long you don't have a deadline to meet. If you are from South India, this means that you can take off for home every weekend.
    You will get to read a lot about everything, since clients can come from any field. But this knowledge will not be in-depth or thorough. It will be just enough to solve the problem at hand. Nevertheless your GK will improve.

    ConsNo out-time. Most people work very late very often. Only people higher up in the organization leave early.
    Bad culture. The people will speak and dress as if they are from Wall Street. A lot of swear words are used very casually.
    Employees are amoral. They do not think about any negative repercussions their work may have on the employees or customers of another organization. As long as they save money for their client, they will deem it a success.
    Decision sciences is not at all a science. At least not an exact science. That makes it a very poor science. It is just common sense bundled with Information technology. And yeah, a lot of the time, you will type so much text (more than code) that you will wonder if you are working for a call centre. People keep saying that all the people here are very smart. Some of them are. But the truth is that they all just have common sense and good communication skills.
    People here use a lot of jargon, buzzwords and punch lines to make the insanely simple work they do sound like rocket science.
    If you want to get an MBA, it is a good experience, because you will be required to learn about the client companies. But don't plan on staying very long, if you have any respect for your health.
    And for all this, you get a pretty poor pay package, at least for the first year. Stay bonuses are paid after every one and a half years, in order to reduce attrition. So don't leave a core company upon seeing their pay package.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop using unnecessary jargon and buzzwords. Stay grounded. Mu Sigma does not make you awesome. People around the world are doing great things like creating vaccines and making Eco-friendly technologies. You can't compare boosting a client's sales through data-backed advertising strategies to the former. Stop boasting about achievements that are not yours. You can't prove if the client's sales improved only because of you. Even they don't give you that much credit.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The Company might be growing, but the standards are deteriorating, just because of the No Brain Initiated Policy changes

    Trainee Decision Scientist (Current Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsYou will definitely get to learn a lot as they let you do hands on deliverables from the start. The crowd is the best part of the company. Loads of youngsters are present which will help you with a lot of stress busting times.

    ConsThere are loads of cons to the company. They say that there is openness among all the peers that are present but that is totally not the case. Some higher level people are great but majority of them do not listen to what you want or how you want to do things that you want to do your own way. Work these days are also deteriorating. Most of the projects have turned to reporting which i believe is not bad, if you do it for a few months as it is a part of your work but doing it for more than 12 months without any other things to learn is totally worse. Some managers here don't have the guts to talk to higher authority and ask for changes. They just sit back and relax until the person who wants to "learn" bugs him for a long time, then the procedure for project change starts.On-Site opportunities have reduced to a bare minimal level. If the managers and Senior people know you very well despite your lack of industry knowledge you are a perfect candidate for onsite. Policies are even worse. Non-Veg is not served in the cafeteria because the CEO is a vegetarian (because screw the non-vegetarians, " i am the CEO, I will do whatever i want ") . Compensation is still decent but less than the industry standards.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease make sure people learn things here. The learning curve has decreased drastically. Because of a few people the openness has declined. Don't do cost cutting if it costs you, your employees.

    Over Rated Company!

    Trainee Decision Scientist (Former Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsGood learning, Co-workers, Will get promoted fast as other people in your batch would've quit by 1.5 years ( I know a few people like that)

    Cons1.No work life balance - I was part of a project working nearly 15 hours a day with 0 learning
    2.Salary is soo low compared to other companies
    3.Higher management will never listen to salary or related concern with their only answer being "There are 1000's waiting to join the company"
    4.Its a hyped up company, from the outside looks very flashy, but from the inside one really gets to know that almost 80% of the employees just wait for the appraisal, get the stay bonus and quit - Even though the management knows this, they will never do a thing about it
    5.No incentives also, like Pick up and drop facility

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis could have been the company of the decade, had you taken care of your employees. You always talk about doing revolutionary work like Google, FB, etc. then first treat employees like they do, if not atleast treat them like humans!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Review on mu sigma

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsGood working seniors
    apparently people here believe that one can change the world (which is not a bad thing)
    You would get good work experience

    ConsHeavy heavy work load, forget about the work life balance

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think they should reduce the work load. It is of no use to earn 6 or 7 lacs an year and have no life after office hours

    Company hungry for growth, CEO hungry for his own growth ( Ego + Money)

    Program Management & Pre Sales (Former Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsGood place for beginners... gives a good platform for someone who is math oriented or someone who wants to do an MBA 2 years later. Nothing extraordinary about the company

    ConsPoor Management, CEO has ZERO people skills & value for people. This is a recipe for disaster, especially when you are in services.

    Advice to Senior Management- Form a mature management team
    - Stop giving unnecessary promotions to junior people ( 5 yrs experience guy cannot be a Manager !)
    - Respect the customer

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
