    Pros

    Good training program, good for gaining experience, benefits/perks/free stuff (trips, food at work, etc.), work/life balance

    Cons

    Garbage pay that gets tougher over time, some segments better than others, limited sales territories, managers playing favorites, unhelpful internal resources, college jock culture

    Advice to Management

    I know of no other company that makes their pay scale worse over time, reward people who do well instead of punishing them.

    Despite what you say, some segments and territories are better than others. Judge people on their merits instead of playing favorites. Despite hitting my sales goals consistently and improving my touch numbers over time, I watched as kids who proved nothing came in and got lucrative accounts. Hence why I left.

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

    I worked at CDW full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work atmosphere, esp with free lunches, random perks, etc. management is easy going and atmosphere is laid back.

    Cons

    P The pay is not comparable to other companies in the area, especially for the position that I was in, which was contract analyst.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees much more, do a complete overhaul of the middle management, as most middle-management are unqualified and should not be in their positions at CDW.
