    I have been working at CDW

    Pros

    great people to work with. if you're interested in technology at all you'll learn by force of habit one way or the other. If you're smart (meaning you're willing to learn) if you pay attention to the people that know their stuff and learn from them AND you're willing to work hard you can make some serious coin.

    Cons

    being in sales in general is enough to make you want to hit your head against the wall. This is a seriously competitive environment. If you let the recruiters sell you on the job you're going to be really upset. To them, everyone's a millionaire here. That's few and far between. You're going to run into managers that don't help, or are totally useless. Baptism by fire is a pretty common occurance.

    Advice to Management

    do us all a favor? stop LYING! dear LORD! don't say that you've made some massive change in account bases and then tell us it's for OUR benefit! that's like letting us spend a lot of time and care growing a beautiful lawn, and once we know that all we need to do is keep it watered and cleaned that it will continue to grow, you come in rip up the lawn, give it to the new neighbors that moved in and hand us some seeds and say start over.


  2. Inside Sales with room to make money if you can find the business!

    Pros

    Chicago Location next to union station is central for commuters, running errands, and working out. Inside sales means less travelling out of state. Potential to make mega cash does exist if you're good at playing the corporate game. Youthful, fun sales atmosphere.

    Cons

    Sales goals in some segments can be over-inflated....and if you don't hit goal, you risk not getting paid your commission at all. Commission structure can be confusing to understand in certain segments, even the commission analyst had difficulty explaining it firsthand.

    Advice to Management

    Fix commission structure so that it's easy to explain, and understand. This may not apply to all segments, but it does to some.
