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

    Pros

    It is a good company! Yes, it has its own share of issues like high attrition and many people might comment on its “not so good” work culture. But I would like to say “Thank you!”. I am grateful to Mu Sigma for giving me the opportunity to transition my career into analytics. Prior to this I felt that I was stuck in IT with Infy forever. I didn’t stay there for too long but I learnt a lot at Mu Sigma which helped me in my stint in other firms later and also in my higher studies.

    To anyone who is just a fresher and wants to make a career in analytics, this is a great company for your first job!

    Cons

    Some of the major issues are- low pay and heavy workload

    Advice to Management

    Invest in solutions to counter attrition.

    I have been working at Mu Sigma full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I think most people fail to understand and even misunderstand what Mu Sigma is trying to do. This organization is building people to "Learn and Adapt" instead of recruiting people who "Know stuff and are efficient". Efficiency is a mantra of the past where you optimize (get better at) things that rarely change. Adaptability is the mantra of the future where you unlearn and change yourself to a diverse set of things in a fast changing world. This comes at the cost of taking the pain to build college-grads people grounds up, being inefficient at times, stretching until the mid-night, fighting the "expert" mentality, having the tolerance to withstand discomfort, chaos and uncertainty, and also taking a relatively lower pay. But hey - if it can toughen you up for life-long learning, the journey is worth it.

    Cons

    Spotting downsides is hard for those who believe in the idea.

    1. I think in Mu Sigma it gets difficult to understand what's happening in the outside world when you're deeply absorbed in work
    2. I think it is hard for folks living with their family and children. At the end of a day in Mu Sigma, it is hard to be content and go home. You know your team is still working, and you know there's a lot more to be done

    Advice to Management

    The messages given to the employees are often so radical that it turns them off. We need to tone it down for them to understand how the idea benefits them. We need to brand ourselves more and more as an employee-friendly company. We're at the exact opposite end. I'm sure that we can turn things around if we take the effort

    I have been working at Mu Sigma full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -> Exposure and Experiences are unmatched
    -> Constant learning with evaluation

    Cons

    -> Work-Life balance goes for a toss
    -> Compensation is inadequate
    -> Employment Bond and Notice Period are aggressively binding

    Advice to Management

    The grooming of new analysts right out of MSU can be improved, wherein the speed with which the work is delegated to them is sometimes out of the grasping limit.
