    I worked at Mu Sigma full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really fast paced and diverse work.
    Get freedom to implement your thoughts.
    Robust cross vertical experience and vibrant crowd.

    Cons

    Too many policy changes.
    Lateral hires can't deal with the pressure (since there are no concrete systems in place)
    Sporadic documentation
    No retention policy for top employees

    Advice to Management

    Work on detail - you can't replace top people with tier2 lateral higher.
    Also don't expect tier3 college toppers to bring the same things to the table as blips from good colleges.
    The HR department is an absolute joke.

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

    Pros

    1) Great learning curve for folks who work in Pilot projects
    2) Nice work environment with quite a young crowd
    3) Opportunities for vertical as well as horizontal growth
    4) Direct client interactions, visibility of the work bring done

    Cons

    1) Lack of good mentors as most of the experienced, good people have left the company
    2) Negativity in the work environment as nobody wants to be there
    3) Most of the teams work as a support/maintenance unit, hence very less in learning in those teams
    4) Company is very frugal and cheap towards any employee benefits
    5) Low salary
    6) 3 years bond & 6 months notice period

    Advice to Management

    Need to value their employees more as there is a crisis of good people who can deliver/mentor coworkers
