I have been working at CDW full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Once you've established yourself at CDW, they can be very flexible with you. Flexible with the hours you work, allow you to work from home one or more days a week (depending on your department) and give you the room to do your job. If you put in the effort, you can be rewarded. Pay can be a little on the low-end to start, but if you do good work and know how to leverage your capabilities, you can get higher and higher. Overall CDW gives me an excellent work/life balance.

Cons

Things can move a little slowly at a big company such as this, especially one with roots in the catalog industry, long before the internet. As mentioned, pay can be a little on the low side, but they have some excellent extra perks and benefits to make up for that. One other con is it is in some cases easy for under-performers to stick around, discipline for those who don't contribute could be better.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid to get rid of the dead weight.

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

    Pros

    The atmosphere is young and you can make a lot of friends. You run your own desk with your assigned territory, however if you do not make the effort there will be no reward.

    Cons

    The compensation (percentage of sales) is pretty low, but it is clear that within the company there are the "Big Hitters" who started 8+ years ago and basically just rake in the dough while not even being very technical. There are quite a few frat boys and as of more recently sorority girls there. Once you turn 30 you will want out.

    Advice to Management

    Management is a hit or miss here. Every team has a different manager some are better than others and you will learn very quickly if you like your manager or not. At this point I am glad that I did work there, but also knew when it was time to leave.
