    I have been working at CDW full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The training you can get if you are motivated is amazing
    The work life balance is good if you are tenured
    great place to network

    Cons

    The salary is deplorable,
    they pillage their vendor partners for money for fruitless en devours and will only let ones in that contribute big marketing dollars get face time with sales
    Ever since MDP took over the culture has been turned inside out.
    most people are miserable and the atmosphere is toxic, only the extreme heavy hitters seem happy
    The company has lost the human element and everything is a portal or a SharePoint.
    most architects have antiquated hardware that wont run most configuration tools

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people better wages or you will continue to hemorrhage talent. Get rid of your sales portals and invest in systems that actually work (e.g. Sales Force). Be more liberal with work from home days. Ease up on using your partners as a profit center.

    I have been working at CDW full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    CDW has a great work environment. Coworkers help each other out. Have the ability to build a lot of strong relationships with coworkers. Managers are available to guide and strategize. Lots of availability to migrate to other roles within CDW or through their vendor partners. The potential to make a lot of cash within 3-4 years at the company.

    Cons

    1st year at the job is very poverish salary-wise. 2nd and 3rd year will get better. Some sectors within the company are better than others i.e. depending where you are placed in the company and who you sell to, you could make a lot of money or you could make very little. It's all relative though, the harder you work and the longer you stay, the more rewards you will see.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management can either be completely micro-managers or completely unavailable. As a coworker, you must try to maintain the relationship with the manager in order to redeem awards with accounts and advice.
