Great company out of college, will learn business processes and gain valuable experience

Account Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

Pros- treat employees great (free food, raffles, trips, prizes, etc)
- MOST leadership is friendly, respectful, helpful
- coworkers are fun, but extremely hard working
- laid back atmosphere
- gym next door that is hugely popular with CDW employees
- young crowd

Cons- very transactional in first yr or 2
- book of business based on your manager, territory, and team members
- no defined sales strategy
- depending on your segment you may be hard pressed to increase your revenue
- can be some micromanagement depending on your manager
- hold steadfast to call/sales metrics, so be prepared for call center like atmosphere, where you need to hit minimum outbound calls and call time

Advice to Senior Managementmake it more defined process for giving book of businesses. no major complaints just make sure that everybody is starting off on level playing field else its easy for some to get discouraged.

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