    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Honestly, the only thing I enjoyed about the CdB program was all the other young professionals in it. Everyone is fresh out of college, eager to meet new people in new cities

    Cons

    Lack of responsibility, lack of purpose, lack of career guidance, 'training' is entirely misdirected, people outside of CdB don't respect the program, the program is constantly over-hiring leaving people on the bench for MONTHS at a time, the 100-year-old culture, etc...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying. This isn't McKinsey, BCG, Deloitte, Accenture, etc and it never will be. You sell the program to be of pure strategy consulting when in reality, that is the last way I'd describe it to be. The flashly trip to Orlando with the 10% of people who have positive experiences in the program only leaves us more disappointed when we find out it's all a lie. Stop hiring business majors who have no interested in IT, stop hiring pre-med majors, stop hiring international relations majors and START hiring IT-focused students and only IT-focused students. A supply chain major does not want to work on a software implementation project as a glorified secretary for 9 months. Reevaluate everything about your recruiting strategy. Having a mass exodus of consultants in the 1.5-2.5 year time frame after hiring is wasting money.
