    I have been working at CDW full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The training program is second to none, though the position is not for the faint of heart. Position rewards hard work and a growth mindset.

    Cons

    The Riverside office building needs some updates, though the art in the entry to the building is a welcome change by building management.

    Advice to Management

    Management differs so much from team to team, that such advice is futile. Typically, the hands off approach is best as a starting point. The best managers take this approach.

    Pros

    CDW walks the walk they talk! From the awesome coworkers to the company culture, perks/benefits, CDW is really a place where people can call home. I was provided with all the tools I need to be successful day one, management is very invested in the success and development of their teams. Here you will work hard but you definitely reap the harvest. In addition, having the autonomy to create and try new things is awesome! Also, having a WFH option, onsite gym and Café days are a great plus!

    Cons

    Can't think of anything.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at CDW full-time

    Pros

    Good vision and senior management team. Many coworkers in the area outside the department I worked in were very talented, engaged, great to work with, and promoted a positive culture. Perks like free food and gifts. Promotes work/life balance.

    Cons

    There were too many cons in the department where I worked so I left. There was favoritism by management, bullying, bad mouthing and making fun of others. I took the CDW Way and ethics very seriously and it made me sick, literally, the behavior that was tolerated in that department.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more fairness and have zero tolerance for unethical behavior.
