    I worked at CDW full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Vendors prizes, gifts, awards were a perk along with sports games and food they offered!

    Cons

    Terrible pay, small business market was impossible to keep up with other more established divisions; re-organization of your accounts against your will; "corporate" environment, not family friendly, "Boiler Room" attitude...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase starting pay by at least $5-10K

    Pros

    CDW is a large company with a lot of resources.

    Cons

    The issue is that there are too many resources to be properly managed. Many of the pre-sales engineering talent isn't as sharp as it should be. With the company recently going public, most of the focus is on paying its people less while making more for the bottom line. It used to be a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the company back to the point where it valued its employees and treated them well. It's very apparent that the goal is to increase the bottom line at the sales people's expense.
