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

    Pros

    1. Excellent place to hone skills; be it core Analytics skills, communication, project/team management
    2. Young org - energy levels super high. You tend to work longer without even realizing
    3. Rate of learning super high due to the overall construct & culture
    4. Questioning status quo is a norm; encouraged to challenge and question anybody; which is great

    Cons

    1. Life beyond work might almost become non-existent sometimes; becomes consistent/constant as one grows. Not sustainable for all - Takes a toll beyond a point.
    2. Young org also means lot of chatter and time spent away from work during work hours; makes people stay longer. So, its not just the work..
    3. CEO dictatorial and at times, downright nasty reprimanding people in large forums. Very unpleasant; do not approve.
    4. Pay is very disproportionate; low compared to external market standards. Leads to lot of churn

    Advice to Management

    The fundamental core pillars (learning over knowing, problem solving etc) plus the unique culture plus high energy teams is something amazing - don't get to see it elsewhere. Hope the cons are addressed so that they can continue to build, grow without losing the fundamentals, culture & people
