Inside Sales Account Manager (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsCDW has a great work environment. Coworkers help each other out. Have the ability to build a lot of strong relationships with coworkers. Managers are available to guide and strategize. Lots of availability to migrate to other roles within CDW or through their vendor partners. The potential to make a lot of cash within 3-4 years at the company.

Cons1st year at the job is very poverish salary-wise. 2nd and 3rd year will get better. Some sectors within the company are better than others i.e. depending where you are placed in the company and who you sell to, you could make a lot of money or you could make very little. It's all relative though, the harder you work and the longer you stay, the more rewards you will see.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management can either be completely micro-managers or completely unavailable. As a coworker, you must try to maintain the relationship with the manager in order to redeem awards with accounts and advice.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
