    Pros

    Great learning curve.
    Flexibility to play a variety of roles
    Senior management is very inspiring
    Variety of business problems to solve, across all verticals and horizontals

    Cons

    Compensation is below industry average
    Middle management is not very good, leading to unstructured work for the analysts
    extreme work hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the middle management. Some of the middle management folks are causing more trouble to the company than adding value

    Pros

    Good learning, easy access to top mgmt. There are a ton of presentations and competitions happening and we can participate and learn a lot.

    Cons

    Salary, Indian IT Service Provider. People are still in the mindset to hire low cost employees in India and get them to US on relatively low salary.

    I have been working at Mu Sigma full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You learn a ton, about how to be professional and how to get work done. Lots of responsibility very early, and your words are listened to by senior managers who have 10+ years of experience when you're just a rookie. Again, you get a huge amount of knowledge for your time here.

    Cons

    The schedule is nuts! Be at work by 8:30 - 9:00, morning meetings, spend the afternoon getting work done, spend the early evening doing the work you didn't get done in the afternoon, spend the evenings in calls (yes, you are required to take calls from India at 10:30 - 12:00 midnight, and there is no way out of them.) Work life integration, not work life balance. If you have a significant other that wants to spend time with you every day, don't bother with this place, you wont have the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    $/hour is pathetic. The "Iron Man Suit" ideology is an excuse for not investing in your workers. If you want to retain Americans for more than 2 years, either up the pay or dial down the workload.

    Pros

    Fun peers
    Learn a lot in the first 2 years of your career

    Cons

    No formal training although continuous learning is preached
    No efforts to ensure clients gets good quality work
    Poor compensation and even poorer hikes
    No work life balance
    No respect for tenure and skills for employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees as they are the back bone of the company and not the problem solving framework. Use the framework to help the employees want to help the company to grow.

    You will cover breadth of analytics in very short span of time which in other companies you might take years.

    Too early at times you move into the management side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to say no the clients at times. Dont sell too much work in the name of learning.
