Pros

People are great, that's it.

Cons

Management is awful, pay is terrible, advancement is non-existent. The culture that made us one of the best places to work is long gone. They still make some attempts to not look like a souless corporation but that is what they have turned into.

Advice to Management

When you read the coworker surveys and see how miserable people are in one department, at least pretend you care. Pay attention to everyone - you are losing some remarkable people through disinterest.

    Pros

    Good company to work for if you are self driven, no commission cap and easy to make over 100K if you stick it out for a couple years

    Cons

    Management can make or break it

    Pros

    CDW 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.

    Cons

    1st 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 Management

    Upper 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.
