    Pros

    Good reputation in the industry, selling what companies need and offer just about every product. Quite a bit of lunches, raffles, events, and other perks. For the money a pretty easy job.

    Cons

    Depending on what territory you get will mean a huge difference on how much you make and not an easy way to transition to other territories. Same comp plan for Bay area startups as every other territory. Instead of actually taking input or talking to employees Management focuses on "efforts" Want lots of calls, lots of quotes, lots of internet hits, and sales actually seems one of the least important.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to be useful.

    I worked at CDW (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Best place to master IT technology and sales as a sales professional.

    Cons

    Management has no discretion regarding performance; if you don't meet GP or call thresholds, you're out. Too many surprises as to how quotas are computed; e.g., high GP account performance is "penalized" the following year with unrealistic goals.

    Advice to Management

    AM's and district management need to be more involved in forecasting and setting account/territory quotas. Teach AM's how the quota system works and how to best manage their business.
