What is paid time off like at Mu Sigma?

Pros

1. The culture promotes learning; sometimes it is way too rushed and sometimes it's not something relevant that you are learning but projects teach one a lot. From the technical part to time management to project management to some extent 2. Lot of Ownership. At times might feel like way too much for what one is getting paid but then it helps in the long run 3. Good bunch of people. Energetic souls ready to pull off those all-nighters at the office and still share a good laugh over a cool coffee break in the middle of the midnight

Cons

1. Poor Leadership 2. Unethical Work Rules - No time off, unnecessary salary deductions 3. Attrition of a different level

Advice to Management

No point giving, no one listens

No time off, unnecessary salary deductions

Does Mu Sigma offer life insurance?

Pros

Strong Points – Interesting Diverse Work across skillsets/toolsets/ industry-verticals etc., Great opportunities for freshers and ability to present ideas to high-profile executives (both inside Mu Sigma & clients), Ability to switch verticals within the company very easily, Punching above their weight in the analytics industry despite so many things stacked against them, Single Location –ITPL Whitefield, Bangalore! No issues of Transfers Good Salary that increases exponentially (especially first 3 years) De-centralized leadership, flat hierarchy, and Open door policy Very good at crisis management, Fire-Fighting and Emergency Response. For close to 5000 employees under one roof, there is surprisingly very little Office Politics and Favouritism (Meritocracy rocks!)!!

Cons

Weak Points – Poor Work-life Balance, Bland Food, Poor on employee health Promises a bit too much to clients at times and is always at a risk to under-deliver, Growth slows down when you reach Middle Management Has lost a bit of sheen/fire that it had before. Reminds you of a guy who did better in his 20s than his 30s Despite the top leadership's obsession with values!!! The lower employees do not adhere to its own values of "Learning over Knowing, Extreme Experimentation, Inter-disciplinary Perspective etc." Weak Knowledge Management, Resource Utilization, Talent Management, Talent Retention, Talent Acquisition, etc

Advice to Management

> Recruit more from lower IITs n top NITs instead of trash private colleges > Also Recruit from Statistics, Economics, Integrated (Bachelors+MBA), MS/MCA/M.tech, BBA (General, Retail, Supply Chain, Info Sys, Global Business) background > Longer Induction Program of 6 months with more skillsets & toolsets being explored (freshers feel being thrown into the deep end of the pool) > Bond of 1-1.5 yrs for Lateral Hires at AL position to keep them intact. > Recruit ALs at slightly better B-schools than the current ones you do i.e. 'IIM-BLACKIS-&-RTU', IIMU (one year MBAs), IITs, NITIE, NMIMS and perhaps try out new colleges like Master's Union, BITSOM etc > Make Accelerated/Continous Learning Programs compulsory that forces employee's to learn new skillsets & toolsets parallel to the daily tasks > Might be against the company's values of Inter-disciplinary Perspective (IP), But please make SBUs as per industry verticals, don't club clients of different industry verticals together as little to no IP happens in reality >This is again against company values but you need to create strong segregated industry-wise SME hubs. For e.g expertise in Airlines, Telecom, Media, Construction & Real Estate, Oil & Natural Gas is missing whereas those for Retail, Pharma, IT, CPG/FMCG, Manufacturing are plenty >You need a much better Knowledge Management Platform/ digital e-library/ Centre of Excellence of your own. The freshmen are left clueless about so many legendary projects that Mu Sigma did in the past > Pitch yourself differently!! You sound like a math-geeky number-crunching firm but actually want to be an Analytics+Consulting+SaaS company. At the end, I'd say that I spent 3 years in Mu Sigma but it'll always be close to my heart. Keep your MU (average) High and SIGMA (deviation) Low !!

Does Mu Sigma offer a wellness program?

Pros

Crowd is Dynamic. No Non-sense and Non-pedantic. Flat hierarchy enables reach and exposure for true potential easier. Learning curve is fascinatingly exponential for those who have an eye for it, and very steep in general. Recommended for freshman and internship.

Cons

Trust factor and benefits received by an employer are poor. Cafeteria didn't provide great range in cuisines and passes the hygiene test just above average. A minute late, you'd have to apply for a half day leave. Doesn't pay you well for the work you do. Mu Sigma University designed courses to move from Trainee Decision Scientist to Decision Scientist were not a yardstick ever for growth and were not impact oriented.

Advice to Management

Non whatsoever as they are running the company to the ground.

Trust factor and benefits received by an employer are poor.
