    "Family Day"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Trainee Decision Scientist in Bengaluru
    Current Employee - Trainee Decision Scientist in Bengaluru

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

    Pros

    Feels so great to have your family look the entire day at the place where you spend almost around 11 to 12 hours a day and meet your friends at work.

    Parents get to know what kind of work their children do in the organization.

    Cons

    The I&D session was irrelevant for most of the parents. They should try something new like an extended floor walk which will be of interest to many parents

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for conducting a Family Day.

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

    Pros

    It is a good company! Yes, it has its own share of issues like high attrition and many people might comment on its “not so good” work culture. But I would like to say “Thank you!”. I am grateful to Mu Sigma for giving me the opportunity to transition my career into analytics. Prior to this I felt that I was stuck in IT with Infy forever. I didn’t stay there for too long but I learnt a lot at Mu Sigma which helped me in my stint in other firms later and also in my higher studies.

    To anyone who is just a fresher and wants to make a career in analytics, this is a great company for your first job!

    Cons

    Some of the major issues are- low pay and heavy workload

    Advice to Management

    Invest in solutions to counter attrition.

    The pay is on a very lower end
    The three year BOND(contract)

    Take off the three year advance payment and give a more free environment for the employees to work at

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

    Pros

    I think most people fail to understand and even misunderstand what Mu Sigma is trying to do. This organization is building people to "Learn and Adapt" instead of recruiting people who "Know stuff and are efficient". Efficiency is a mantra of the past where you optimize (get better at) things that rarely change. Adaptability is the mantra of the future where you unlearn and change yourself to a diverse set of things in a fast changing world. This comes at the cost of taking the pain to build college-grads people grounds up, being inefficient at times, stretching until the mid-night, fighting the "expert" mentality, having the tolerance to withstand discomfort, chaos and uncertainty, and also taking a relatively lower pay. But hey - if it can toughen you up for life-long learning, the journey is worth it.

    Cons

    Spotting downsides is hard for those who believe in the idea.

    1. I think in Mu Sigma it gets difficult to understand what's happening in the outside world when you're deeply absorbed in work
    2. I think it is hard for folks living with their family and children. At the end of a day in Mu Sigma, it is hard to be content and go home. You know your team is still working, and you know there's a lot more to be done

    Advice to Management

    The messages given to the employees are often so radical that it turns them off. We need to tone it down for them to understand how the idea benefits them. We need to brand ourselves more and more as an employee-friendly company. We're at the exact opposite end. I'm sure that we can turn things around if we take the effort

    Pros

    The work environment is great. Infrastructure is awesome. Transparent visibility. If you want to keep yourself busy with a lot of work and ownership you'll enjoy here. Lot's of scope for a different genre of work.

    Cons

    Work Hours and Salary are the downside else the company is worth experiencing.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility is required desperately in this company. It used to be such a great company and still has that vigor. Please bring it back to its old glory and dynamics.
