    I have been working at CDW

    Pros

    Working downtown and in a nice area
    Clean facilities
    Some what comfy chairs

    Cons

    Low pay, bad management, calling a lot, poor communication between employees, snobby bosses and low pay. This is a stressful job and not worth 25k a year in my opinion but for others it might be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what you would want to be paid for the tasks that are required.

    Hiring Too Much, Increasingly Hard To Make Money

    I worked at CDW

    Pros

    -Great Sales Training
    -Fun to work with the biggest technology companies in the world
    -Lots of events/ incentives from vendors to CDW salesforce to promote their brands
    -Incredible networking opportunities as you interact with countless reps and brand managers from the tech industry's leading manufacturers

    Cons

    -HR has decreased standards in hiring competent and qualified account managers.
    -Very low starting pay, and management is making it harder to make money. The company is hiring sales reps at a record pace, and therefore flooding its territories with reps, leaving less for you to work.
    -From new sales compensation plan, many reps are unable to hit their inflated goals and because of this, are receiving lessened or no commission

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Increase the base salary for Account Managers and give more talented salespeople/ more intelligent new college graduates a legitimate reason to work for and stay with CDW. Stop churning out reps and actually try and keep them for the long haul. The low base salary and new commission plan are insulting to the current salesforce and has caused decreased morale overall, especially when goals are so tough to hit.
    -Stop hiring so many reps and give the ones you hired more opportunity to work good accounts.
