Good to be hired from the outside, bad to rise from within.

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Madison, WI

I have been working at CDW

ProsFreedom to work remotely (in most positions, not all.) Co-workers and managment are respectful, good working environment, excellent rapport amongst co-workers. Lots of opportunites, they are good about hiring from within.

ConsIf you started in a lower position and work your way up, the opportunities are there (which is good) but the pay level stinks. They don't reward you for the knowledge you already have. Your peers could be making 20K more than you - and that sucks.

Advice to Senior ManagementEqual work - equal pay. Quit giving us the "corporate only allows a 4% increase" in your salary baloney.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
