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

Pros

People are great, that's it.

Cons

Management is awful, pay is terrible, advancement is non-existent. The culture that made us one of the best places to work is long gone. They still make some attempts to not look like a souless corporation but that is what they have turned into.

Advice to Management

When you read the coworker surveys and see how miserable people are in one department, at least pretend you care. Pay attention to everyone - you are losing some remarkable people through disinterest.

    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.
