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

Pros

Great opportunity to learn and expand your career choices. Great networking, great people.

Less than impressive leadership, rude, uninformed, emotional, untrustworthy.

Advice to Management

Don't just send your leaders on courses and assume they learn and grow. Take them to task, challenge them, coach, mentor. LEAD!
