Senior Account Manager

Senior Account Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsGreat company with great benefits. Wonderful place to start your technology career. Exposure to many company becaue of the name CDW to open doors.

If you want to move up in the company? Be prepared to move to a new city.

ConsLack of accountability. Will not let someone go if they are horrible at their job. They would rather keep someone who is a potential threat to other exmployees than risk a law suite for wrongful termination.

You also need to realize that this is an inside sales job. Just because you make 200K or a 100K a year doesn't mean you can get any job you want if you choose to leave. You have no outside sales experience.

If you live in Chicago, it's very hard to move up in the company because everybody wants the same job. Better make some connections and market yourself well.

As a sales person, you have no input on your goals.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the fat that's holding the company back.

Realize that accounts don't always grow.

Give your sales team the ability to give input about the goals and why they are what they are.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
