A large business with many aspects that still feel like a small business

Finance (Current Employee)
Madison, WI

I have been working at CDW full-time for more than 5 years

ProsPlenty of opportunity to move up in the organization.
Plenty of geographical relocation opportunities, but have never seen them pushed on anyone.
Many big company benefits, with many/most areas still operating with a small company feel
A view of the future of IT (& CDW's place in it) that I understand & believe in
An exec team that knows my name - & I'm not even a manager in a company of many thousands.
Things are always changing - & there are many good things that come with that

ConsThings are always changing, & that can be unnerving at times (for certain personalities)
Growing pains: Inconsistency in what CDW is from region-to-region across the US depending on the technical experience & sales depth of each local team.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo further with the use of Barkley to tell a multi-season story... have him recruit Lee Trevino to join him as "it guys" and the ringers on the company golf team... tie that into the spring golf ads... then have Barkley & Trevino recruit Ken Griffey Jr as the next "it guy" to join them as ringers on the company softball team - tie that into summer baseball ads... have all 3 recruit Urlacher for... etc...

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