    I have been working at Mu Sigma full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You learn a ton, about how to be professional and how to get work done. Lots of responsibility very early, and your words are listened to by senior managers who have 10+ years of experience when you're just a rookie. Again, you get a huge amount of knowledge for your time here.

    Cons

    The schedule is nuts! Be at work by 8:30 - 9:00, morning meetings, spend the afternoon getting work done, spend the early evening doing the work you didn't get done in the afternoon, spend the evenings in calls (yes, you are required to take calls from India at 10:30 - 12:00 midnight, and there is no way out of them.) Work life integration, not work life balance. If you have a significant other that wants to spend time with you every day, don't bother with this place, you wont have the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    $/hour is pathetic. The "Iron Man Suit" ideology is an excuse for not investing in your workers. If you want to retain Americans for more than 2 years, either up the pay or dial down the workload.

    Pros

    You will cover breadth of analytics in very short span of time which in other companies you might take years.

    Cons

    Too early at times you move into the management side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to say no the clients at times. Dont sell too much work in the name of learning.
