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

    Pros

    -Enjoyed my time in India, although now the program is very different. I would not choose to join the company now. You have to find your own housing, live with very few other Americans, and have to stay in India MUCH longer. Anything more than six months can be a lot for most people
    -Gain useful industry knowledge
    -A lot of responsibility for someone recently out of college

    Cons

    -No work/life balance. I cannot stress this enough. Please take it seriously
    -Lots of company/account specific politics. Frequent attempts from both onsite and offshore to undermine each other, possibility of being moved on short notice
    -Abusive management which is promoted top/down
    -No real ability to report such managers
    -On some accounts it was common for employees to be sweared at frequently
    -poor benefits and time off

    Advice to Management

    Get serious about actual changes to human resources

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

    Pros

    - It's a great first job right out of college. After "training" in India for 6 months you'll be asked to lead an offshore team from day one. The learning curve will be steep and thus the experience is rich. Resume looks fantastic after 1 year.

    -Expand a wide range of skills. Each engagement is different, but I've had the opportunity to pick up a large variety of technical and business skills in a short time.

    -The opportunity to work with Fortune 500 middle management on a daily basis right out of college.

    - The India experience was great, just strung on too long.

    Cons

    - The 6 month Columbus program is a huge waste of time for everyone. I understand the necessity of it, but even 5 years later it's still very unorganized and has zero translation to the onsite role which you have been brought on for.

    - Location and security/stability: If you have zero say in where you'll end up when returning from India. And if you end up in a small market or on a pilot project you'll likely be asked to move in your first year. If you end up in a major market (New York, Chicago, Seattle, Bentonville, Atlanta) you're set, but are required to move before receiving a promotion to manager.

    - Just the overall structure and values of the company. It's a very young company and thus it's filled with immaturity and inexperience throughout, which drags on you after a while. I could discuss this point further, but I'm sure it's expressed heavily in this thread.
