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

Pros

Freedom 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.

Cons

If 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Great company if you bust your butt for the first 3 years. The reward pays off after 3 years. Can be very tiring after a while but overall good company and no body does it better as a company than CDW

    Cons

    Fairness in promotions to account Managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees even if they are account managers as human beings even if they make more money than you.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, especially maternity leave if you work with the company for at least 3-5 years. Excellent perks for all departments with vendor lunches and raffles. The company posts birthdays on a repeating screen outside of headquarters, which makes it feel like more of a community atmosphere.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be a bit too casual and people can get slightly unprofessional. I think a lot of people there are comfortable in their positions and are OK with that atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication to their employees about decisions that affect them would be great. Even if they aren't 100% sure of the outcome, a little heads up would be nice.
