CDW – Why Work With Us?


We are the People Who Get IT

Our fingerprints can be found on technology in workplaces and workspaces of more than 250,000 companies, from fresh-faced startups to international conglomerates. We’ve powered record-breaking data traffic at a Super Bowl stadium and equipped mom-and-pop stores with POS systems for Small Business Saturday. We’ve helped hospitals keep medical records secure from data breaches and we’ve migrated a university business school to the cloud. With the breadth of products and services we offer, combined with the expertise of our specialists, there is no request too big or too small. 

From coders to creatives, tech gurus to sales pros, our people are the heart of our business. We call them coworkers - not employees - because we’re all members of the same CDW team. Every single person, regardless of level or location, plays a part in our success. At CDW, you can make a difference.

Diversity and Inclusion at CDW

At CDW, we embrace different and we never stop chasing improvement. We know that tomorrow’s ideas, don’t come from yesterday’s thinking, so we prefer working with people who see the world differently.

We offer forums for our coworkers to celebrate their differences, network with peers and develop career and leadership skills, which we call Business Resource Groups (BRGs). Our BRGs include:

  • Alliance for Business Leading Equality (Individuals with Disabilities)
  • Black Excellence Unlimited
  • Business Resource Alliance Valuing Equality (LGBTQ)
  • Hispanic Organization for Leadership & Achievement
  • Military & Allies Resource Council
  • Pan Asian Council
  • Women's Opportunity Network
  • RISE

The CDW philosophy on diversity extends beyond our coworkers to include the customers we serve, the communities we live in and our valued supplier partnerships.

    I worked at CDW full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Like minded individuals working towards common goals. Excellent compensation. Success breeds success. Low Stress. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Like most organizations, change is constant. Embrace it or you'll find yourself in a negative mental space. Seems to be a disconnect between upper mgmt and front line sales people. Feedback is often heard but rarely acted upon which can be frustrating. But at the end of the day, everyone seems to find success...so maybe they know what they're doing?

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate feedback into change mgmt and messaging so coworkers feel heard and validated. Actually incorporate their feedback into decisions or try pilot programs more frequently.
