Does Mu Sigma offer massages?

Pros

They provide free meals (Not up to the mark). Very few friendly employees.

Cons

Horrible leadership. Mr Dhiraj comes to office in shorts and T shirt with a flip flop which shows his professionalism. The leadership has lost its quality to upskill the existing employees. And indulge in cost cutting which is a loss for every employee in that firm. Work culture is such that you do not know if that's a worse place or a worst place to be in. Training has gone so bad, that the firm does layoff employees in 2-3 months (during training)and hire inexperienced candidates Employees have tried committ suicide cause they were layedoff without a reason in few months of joining. They do not provide cabs both ways. No cafeteria is opened post lunch or post snack time (avg of 2+2 hours the entire day) The politics in this organisation is such that more you work hard the more you get under the radar and thrown out. If you are the servant of your boss, you'd probably get something in return and have a job security. The employees there are so driven by a myth that the organization has been following for a few years but made no sense to any client in order to get the work/service done.

Advice to Management

The organization is not going to survive for long as the major clients such as Microsoft and wallmart accounts have denied/cancelled their contracts as there were major mishaps that the organization screwed up and do not get much revenue from the other clients. Improve your work culture and provide 2 meals in a day with 2 way transport facility. Of cost cutting is happening in the firm it's either cause of the leadership which is terrible or the firm has to get more clients to treat the employees better. The firm does not look into giving a job security to an employee who is less than 1 year in the firm but lay off then without a reason, it has be changed. I conclude that the firm is never going to last for more as per research and analysis from an IIT & IIM graduate. The sad benefits and treatment given to your employees or ex employees will surely come back to you in the way it should.

Does Mu Sigma offer a wellness program?

Pros

Crowd is Dynamic. No Non-sense and Non-pedantic. Flat hierarchy enables reach and exposure for true potential easier. Learning curve is fascinatingly exponential for those who have an eye for it, and very steep in general. Recommended for freshman and internship.

Cons

Trust factor and benefits received by an employer are poor. Cafeteria didn't provide great range in cuisines and passes the hygiene test just above average. A minute late, you'd have to apply for a half day leave. Doesn't pay you well for the work you do. Mu Sigma University designed courses to move from Trainee Decision Scientist to Decision Scientist were not a yardstick ever for growth and were not impact oriented.

Advice to Management

Non whatsoever as they are running the company to the ground.

Trust factor and benefits received by an employer are poor.

Does Mu Sigma offer malpractice insurance?

Pros

I've been here for more than 3 years, and I have learnt a lot from the first day at my job. Generally they hire freshers right out of college and I was one such hire. I've learnt a lot from my experience here in the form of technical skills, handling client conversations and managing my time. MuSigma has a steep learning curve. It has provided me - - Exposure to directly working with clients and interacting with them, thereby improving my communication, storyboarding, and presentation skills - Flexibility to learn analytics across multiple business horizontals and verticals (From Insurance to Retail to CPG to pharma - they have it all) - A great set of colleagues and mentors who are all in the same age bracket as me (For a college graduate, the first few months of training feel exactly like we're back in college) - A chance to learn a lot of technologies (different clients had different data architectures and used different platforms)

Cons

Coming to challenges, - - Lower compensation for the first couple of years (for a bachelor living in a city like Bangalore) - Fixed timings (even if I had no work for a day, I would have to stay at work from 1pm to 10pm) - FIXED timings (I used to drive to work and if I got even a few minutes late - which usually happens due to Bangalore traffic or elevators being full - I would have to apply for half day off) - Long working hours - even though the in-time for the company is fixed, they have no such restraint on the out time. Clients have made us work till sunrise at times - Enforced career path - after 3 years of working here I have no choice but to become a Manager/Apprentice Leader - which is probably a good thing for people pursuing MBA plans, however for someone who is more interested in the technical side of the work it is a pain

Advice to Management

The company does not make even the slightest attempt to retain good talent. Everyone's just a "resource" and is replaceable, which is probably not the best way to treat people.
