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

Pros

Benefits, coworkers, vendor partner relationships, potential to make a lot of money

Cons

Must put in long hours to do well. Takes at least 3 years to establish yourself and make good money. Large volume of calls and talk time required daily. Numbers are measured very closely. Some managers are micro managers. Very competitive.

Advice to Management

Don't only give new account managers the "bottom of the barrel" house accounts.

    Pros

    My position is in engineering and consulting services. There is steady work and the usual benefits like employee-sponsored education, 401K matching, etc.

    Cons

    There are no opportunities for upward mobility within the professional services division. There are only a few top engineering positions which are tightly controlled. Many well-qualified engineers have been passed up for promotion because of the good 'ol boy network.


  2. "Walk the walk and talk the talk"

    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.
