Positive Outlook

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

Pros

-Strong emphasis on training (especially in the account manager role)
-Solutions oriented sales process that focuses on customer's needs
-Strong team dynamic and incentives in place for Account Managers
- HR (CoWorker Services) demonstrates they really care about Coworkers opinions and take actions on survey results.
-Leader in a growing industry (technology)

Cons

-Base salary is often lower than the competition (especially in the AM role)
-Relocation bonus could be higher for those who need to relocate, espcially when coming in at the base of an Account Manager.

Advice to Management

This is a great company and culture. The only area I would advise is to take a look at different markets and the cost of living. Base salaries and relocation bonuses should be adjusted accordingly or we risk isolating certain offices and bringing in a lower quality of talent in markets with a higher cost of living.

    Pros

    You have every resource imaginable right at your finger tips. Great atmosphere!

    Cons

    Base salary is not enough to make it by. If the base salary was enough to get by they would retain their best talent. Plan on selling about $100k per month and make about $100-$300 additional in ONLY your last paycheck of the month if your lucky; on top of a $25k salary per year. First paycheck of the month (welfare check) $650 for two weeks. Also, I was one of the top performers in my starting group

    Advice to Management

    I have a great relationship with my management because I work extremely hard.

    Pros

    When the money is good it is very good. They feed you well.

    Cons

    Wehn you aren't meeting goal you'll make no money and get let go after a few weeks of the whole management team hovering over you. Top Account Managers get better leads and handed open accounts. Everyone spends all day trying to snake coworker's accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Smaller teams with better support and leads.
