    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Allowed to go to the gym during work, and to run your business on your own without getting micromanaged.

    Cons

    You have to do everything on your own from account acquisition to following up on late payments with the customers accounting department. It becomes tedious sometimes and takes time away for more proactive activities.

    Pros

    CDW - at least from the field perspective was a very good company, if you are in a vertical discipline within Cisco you have very good opportunities for advancement in the company and certifications.

    Cons

    Pay is mi-tier for what's out there which is balanced by a lower level of travel compared to what I was used to. In the en my motivation for leaving the company I needed more cash.

    Pros

    Employees have a very understanding management. Employees can win contests such as trips, money, products, and other incentives.

    Cons

    Base salary is way too low compared to other jobs with the same duties. The first year on the job is extremely hard with 90 percent of cold calls.

    Pros

    Great company, work environment and talented coworkers centered on helping customers. Employees have a strong desire to always do the right thing for customers.

    Cons

    Too much time required entering information into systems and reporting. Meet with customers and attend meetings for eight hours during the day which requires you to do your work after 5 pm. Poor work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline processes and allow employees to focus on their core job responsibilities.

    I worked at CDW full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    A good starting place to get into the IT sales industry. Lots of networking opportunities.

    Cons

    CDW is clamping down on what vendors are allowed to compensate salespeople. Pay also seems to be going down so they will have a hard time retaining new and upcoming talent. The old timers are fine but with the way things are structured a glass ceiling is in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit the "vendor agnostic" charade. Either be truly vendor agnostic or cut your line card down. Having 1000s of vendors is meaningless when only certain ones are allowed access and are supported.
