I worked at CDW full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Large marketing and name recognition. Internal systems are streamlined and easy to use.
Potential to make really good money

Cons

Too many layers of management. Very little accountability and sales takes the hit. Harder for newer generation of reps to make good money.

Advice to Management

Keep in mind that sales drives the company's success and happy sales reps equate to successful business. Treat employees like adults...

    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.

    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.
