    I worked at Mu Sigma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1.Good Exposure for folks fresh out of college. 2.Has a good mix of international crowd with folks from different nationalities. 3.CEO is pretty articulate and freshers really look up to him.

    Cons

    1. Incompetent Senior Management in quite a few Business Units. 2.Salary less than the Industry Standards both in India and United States. 3.Most of the decisions are taken by the CEO and the BU heads aren't given real authority. 4.Senior Management just wants to be in the good books of the CEO and are not too bothered about their teams. Certainly not an employee friendly company. 5.More like a body shopping company in the US and the USP of being a Decision Sciences company is just for Branding.They take all sorts of projects and is not very different from other services companies.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Mu Sigma full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Mu Sigma offers great training opportunities that can be great for anyone fresh out of college if they use the opportunity right. Going to India for work is an experience that not many people have. The employees and work that Mu Sigma does is top notch

    Cons

    The CEO is crazy. Look at every real review on this website and you will find people that agree with me. I've been with the company for many years and it's my firm belief that the company needs to remove him and the toxic management culture he has instilled for Mu Sigma to grow healthily. Too many good employees have unnecessarily quit this company for reasons that boil down the toxic management culture. Some of the stories you will hear from ex-Mu Sigmans will show how some of the things senior leadership asks of its employees are unethical, immoral, borderline illegal. Ever since Dhiraj bought out his ex-wife's stake in the company (after he cheated on her), he's been under immense financial pressure to pay back the loans he took out to buy back those same stakes. Expect Dhiraj to constantly interfere in your day-to-day work and push sales (over account stability) down your clients' throats even if they say they aren't interested. Too much effort is focused on obtaining new projects rather than keeping the ones we have. The end result is a client & employee base that is at constant attrition and a stressed-out team that remains. It's a shame how far this company has fallen.

    I worked at Mu Sigma full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You will work on analytics projects, you will get exposure to Fortune 500 clients, you should grow them, and get a real job with them

    Cons

    It is a work mill. They hire recent graduates that they can pay little. Managers are just people who have been around for 2 years (with a 50% retention rate, that isn't surprising). It is a cut rate operation, and they rely on a cult of personality, and promise of a future that doesn't exist to try to retain people. The most you will make is $90k doing the same work people get paid 120-160k minimum to do.
