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

    Pros

    -lots of support from coworkers, manager, product specialists and vendor representatives from top IT manufacturers.
    - decent base pay with commission, and perks from vendors and CDW as a company
    - try to keep a very positive work environment
    -reward sales efforts
    - tons of perks, SWAG, etc.
    - great potential for those who make it.
    - great experience builder.

    Cons

    - high expectations
    - hours are 8-5 M-F but it is expected you work after hours to prospect new accounts, do admin, etc
    - team building rewards done outside of work hours, meaning if you participate you lose personal time or feel left out of team environment at work if you skip these optional events.

    Advice to Management

    consider how much employees want to see each other outside of work hours for work/social events for team building.
