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

    Pros

    1. This company provides the best opportunity to learn, within a very short period of time one gets to learn exceptionally not only about the different analytical techniques and platforms but also about the working of different business.
    2. Provides amazing exposure especially to the young recruits as they get to interact with clients directly within few months.
    3. Flat hierarchy : Which makes every one easily approachable, if you have any suggestions or new ideas which you think can help in enhancing the company's ecosystem you can always directly reach out to the leadership team of the company which include Dhiraj, the CEO of the company.
    4. Freedom to explore different domains within the company. If you think that you are better in sales or marketing or in company building activities than compared to decision sciences then you can definitely work in such areas within the company.
    5. Opportunity to work with best minds. This place provides a chance to work and interact with the most dynamic and talented colleagues.

    Cons

    1. Work life balance: As mentioned above in the first point you need to learn a lot and in very short period of time which definitely affects the work life balance.
    Some projects and problems might demand for working for extra hours even sometimes on weekends
    2. Pace of learning which needs to very high can be an issue for people who are not quick learners
    3. Pay-scale : As compared to other companies of this sector the remuneration is less but since the USP of this company is learning opportunity, i think it is manageable.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing amazing work in building the company. I will just suggest one thing to them to focus upon reducing attrition.

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

    Pros

    Working at Mu Sigma is an enriching experience, specially when its the starting of your career. It is that time when you require honing of your professional skills, and what better than the services industry.
    In terms of work, data analysis requires a lot of thinking and planning before execution which strengthens and structures your thought process.
    The people at work are in the younger age bracket compared to other companies so its fun, builds comfortable working and mentoring atmosphere, but at the same time sets you on the competitive edge.

    Cons

    All of this, given that you do not expect to relax from the start of your career, expecting a steady income and fixed hours of work.

    Advice to Management

    Having a better middle-management to lead and guide the analysts, would go a long way.
