    I have been working at CDW full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are very fun to be around and can sell pretty much anything technology related that your customers as for

    Cons

    Keeping up with the grind of outbound calls. That’s all management cares about

    Advice to Management

    I know it’s a large company and it comes down to analytics and big data, but you have to take into consideration that every segment is different. People in education segments are not physically going to be able to call as many people as smal biz and medlar

    Pros

    Great benefits, awesome potential. You come in as a sales rep, and even if you find out that it's not for you management will help you transition into a different role, whether that be at CDW or as a partner. Your network will grow exponentially in value here. The culture here is one of the best parts about CDW.

    Cons

    As everyone likes to say, it's a terrible $30,000 job but a really easy $100,000 job. Be prepared to grind it out for several years. But oh mama is it worth it.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoy all the management I've interacted with.
