CDW – Houston, TX
CDWs vision is to be the best national provider of Advanced Technology Solutions. Well achieve this reputation by continuing to delight our customers… CDW
I have been working at CDW full-time (Less than a year)
A fully-paid apprenticeship-style program allows me to learn valuable skills and make a decent living without having to waste time and money pursuing a college degree. All the coworkers are friendly and very professional. Managers are demanding, but also helpful and understanding. A great place to work if you like different and changing environments, and like to keep learning. As the company moves more into services, job security for engineers should increase.
This is no 9-to-5. Different jobs require different hours, so work-life scheduling is a challenge. There is a steep learning curve for people new to IT. If you have a hard time learning on your own, or you don't know how to research, you could have a difficult and frustrating time.
Advice to Management
I would like to see more person-to-person lessons with regard to technologies that engineers need to know.
