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

    Pros

    Gain a wide variety of experience and knowledge across different types of projects, client groups, and industries
    Get exposure to high level clients early on in your career
    Management will usually help you if you approach them proactively with your problem

    Cons

    There are phases of your project where work builds up and longer hours are required, but probably not more than any other consulting firm
    Starting pay is lower but quicker career advancements and raises

    Advice to Management

    I think there are a few managers that leave bad reputations for the entire company. Those people need to be identified and removed from their roles.

    I have been working at Mu Sigma full-time

    Pros

    The India team is full of intelligent people, immediate collegues can be helpul

    Cons

    Terrible work/life balance, the company clearly doesn't care about you as people but as human capital, managers can curse you out over emails, the engagement managers can screw over engagements by being spineless yes-men, and the call schedule is insane

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so cheap, listen to the Americans about American business practices, care about your employees and treat them with respect, and don't make quarterly outings mandatory because everyone will hate them

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

    Pros

    * Steep learning curve
    * Open access to people at all levels
    * Presence of a core belief system
    * The better you deliver, the more the work/responsibility that comes your way
    * Multiple opportunities to fail/succeed
    * Opportunity to work with clients sooner than in most companies

    Cons

    * Not enough "experts", which to an extent lies in contrast to their belief system as well - but this potentially impacts the results delivered to clients
    * Risk of potentially burning out the high-performing employees by exerting too much pressure on them
    * Chaos in the upper-level management
