    Pros

    Interview process was quick and painless, when I arrived on the first day everyone was very welcoming and I was given a lot of direction.

    Cons

    So far, I don't have anything bad so say.

    Pros

    Aside from the benefits, flexible work hours, and partner perks, I would say that CDW's Culture stands out as the best attribute of this company. It's truly a family and will move mountains to make to take care of their own.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything off hand

    Pros

    CDW is a very coworker centric environment, with many programs for enrichment and growth within the company. CDW is a company where progress advances, but coworkers always come first.

    Cons

    In terms of salary, only sales seems to be competitive within the marketplace. Operations and other backbone coworkers make seemingly less than the marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    More deeply embrace the symbiotic nature of our workplace and consider better compensation packages for existing operations and backbone coworkers.

    Pros

    This is a great place to be in Sales- you ave the opportunity to be a real entrepreneur with a world class operations team supporting you. And if you don't like sales there are ample opportunities within CDW, CDW really is a leader in technology and services sales; plenty of education available.

    Cons

    This is a demanding culture that breeds success, and not everyone like that pace. They take care of coworkers and a high expectation for customer service.

    Pros

    Fantastic pay compared to competitors Family atmosphere Great Sales resources Positive environment CDW practices what they preach If you don't like your current role, CDW will work hard to find a place for you within the company In sales you can work anywhere in the country

    Cons

    Internal minutia takes up a lot of time and adds frustration

    Advice to Management

    I believe with a larger investment in our software practice, we could see a large return.

    Pros

    Tons of resources. Lots of vendor support. Very helpful co-workers

    Cons

    The pay can be very low to start out. Certain departments, like small business, should be nothing more than a launching pad to another career either within or outside the company. Managers have the power to hold you back. Way too many levels of management.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your veteran employees. Don't take away from us to give to new employees because they aren't sticking around due to low pay.


  8. Nice for a corporate place

    Pros

    Quiet developer area. Some old code, but nice new opportunities to work on new technology.

    Cons

    Not many big team/company events anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Get the desktop app and the web team to work together.

    Pros

    Very stable, strong company; but pay is all about which team you start on which is based on luck. Lots of opportunity to move on to other roles.

    Cons

    Income potential in sales is limited based on the team you start on, and not based on merit or talent of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Comp plans shouldn't be "one size fits all" across segments.

    Pros

    Wonderful work environment, camaraderie, training and education opportunities. I very much enjoyed working with my team at CDW.

    Cons

    The salary is way less than other companies in the industry. I left CDW to work the same job at a different company, and I was able to double my Salary.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the salaries being provided and consider being more competitive. CDW is a great company to work for, with amazing benefits and career development opportunities, but a more competitive salary would be much appreciated.
