    Pros

    Great start to your career. You get a good branding in job market.

    Cons

    Work life balance is very bad

    How everyone can learn should be ensured? I was a part of self learning experiment group and I think some classroom training would have been better for me.

    Pros

    Direct deposit once a month

    Most of these reviews are not from employees based in the United States, the company suffers from regional and account based tribalism. Loyalty is valued over competence

    Shut the company down and pay out the shareholders

    I worked at Mu Sigma full-time

    Pros

    Excellent learning curve in the initial stages of your career

    Cons

    1) Extremely rude mentors (depends on the team). Micro-management at its best,
          which creates toxic environment
    2) Work wont be a problem, dealing with young and arrogant seniors
          will be a huge challenge
    3) Not for the novice or the kind hearted

    Advice to Management

    Graduates coming fresh out of college are novice to the industry .Please inspire them, mentor them & teach them the right things to do. I never wanted to quit the company, but I was forced to, because of the rude and immature seniors.
