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

    Pros

    Awesome work environment, great partnerships with a lot of people, good benefits. you can make alof of $$$ here as long as you work. If CDW isn't a place, it is a great spot to start and get a lot of experience for another position either inside the company or somewhere else.

    Cons

    Some territories are not as lucrative as the next so, it will get challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time on the younger employees. Rather than just hiring more.

    I worked at CDW full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a great opportunity to make a lot of money, not travel and work 8-5. There is also opportunity for lateral movement to other departments or getting into one of the partners. It all depends what you want to do and making it happen.

    Cons

    It gets boring. You do the same thing most of the time and it can get annoying feeling like you're a customer service rep at times. Additionally, there can be a bit of a frat mentality.

    Advice to Management

    More focus and development on remote offices.

    Don't micromanage your employees so hard because it comes off as annoying and distracting. Give employees more opportunities.
