    Former Employee - Account Manager Small Business in Chandler, AZ

    I worked at CDW full-time (less than an 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

    Former Employee - PMO Project Manager in Vernon Hills, IL

    I worked at CDW full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a small shop so you get exposure to a wide variety of enterprise projects. If you're new in your career or out of work, give it a try. Otherwise, try to avoid it.

    Cons

    IT Managers have a culture of bullying. It's a "do what I say" mentality based on political pressures from the top. I noticed that all the positive reviews were from Account Managers. (In that area if you get your numbers you get paid.) IT is a different world where middle managers are trying to protect themselves from being blamed by higher ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
