Former Employee - Account Manager in Chicago, IL

I worked at CDW full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Large marketing and name recognition. Internal systems are streamlined and easy to use.
Potential to make really good money

Cons

Too many layers of management. Very little accountability and sales takes the hit. Harder for newer generation of reps to make good money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep in mind that sales drives the company's success and happy sales reps equate to successful business. Treat employees like adults...

    I have been working at CDW as a contractor

    Pros

    There are good people spattered throughout the organization, which makes working a very repetitive job slightly more bearable.

    Cons

    Pay is meager, environment is pretty negative, little to no accountability from superiors, and hard to stay motivated.

    I have been working at CDW full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits, coworkers, vendor partner relationships, potential to make a lot of money

    Cons

    Must put in long hours to do well. Takes at least 3 years to establish yourself and make good money. Large volume of calls and talk time required daily. Numbers are measured very closely. Some managers are micro managers. Very competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't only give new account managers the "bottom of the barrel" house accounts.
