    I worked at Mu Sigma full-time

    Pros

    Below all the people politics and mediocrity, the company does provide a good basic foundation in building a thought process/approach to analytical problem solving through their muPDNA approach (although this has been diluted a lot in the last few years).
    A lot of responsibility and exposure to a lot of areas is given very early on with no toolkit to help you learn your way around, you have to figure it out yourself!

    Cons

    Bad company culture, rude and unruly managers, passive aggresive behavior, attrition because of you loose credibility in front of the client, lack of training at the basic level. Roles change overnight with no support from senior managers (client services was just expected to start selling without guidance to persuade clients on the change of roles, you're left in the deep end!)

    Advice to Management

    focus on continuous training, address attrition and burn out.

    Pros

    - The training in India is incredible: fantastic opportunity to network internationally, try your hand at dozens of different industries, learn how to solve problems, and learn industry level analytics.
    - Fixed track of growth in the company, so you don't have to worry about internal politics to raise your salary
    - Office hours in India are in the evening. As a result, there is a lot of overlap between US hours and India hours, so there are few late night or early morning calls.
    - Interact with big ticket Fortune 500 clients directly from their office
    - Interact with senior management at the Bangalore office

    Cons

    - This is a client services role. Although we were trained analytically while in India, most of the delivery is handled by India. You spend most of your time setting up meetings, coordinating video calls, gathering intel, and other business development activities. Oftentimes, presentations are run from offshore.
    - Most of your team is in India, so you spend a lot of time on the phone.
    - Although the training in India is great, some parts of the curriculum are too vague, so you have to be a go-getter to learn what you want to know. Also, the training curriculum changes from year to year, so don't expect to get the same sort of training that you read in the reviews.
    - The job varies from location to location. You could be placed anywhere, and that location will dramatically influence your experience with the company
    - The compensation is far below industry standard
    - The culture divide between Indians & Americans can be quite rough at times
    - To many, the 6-9 months in India can be quite chaotic

    Advice to Management

    Set appropriate expectations to incoming employees on the roles and expectations of the job; Improve your upper management relationships with your current clients
