I worked at CDW full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Chicago Location next to union station is central for commuters, running errands, and working out.
Inside sales means less travelling out of state.
Potential to make mega cash does exist if you're good at playing the corporate game.
Youthful, fun sales atmosphere.

Cons

Sales goals in some segments can be over-inflated....and if you don't hit goal, you risk not getting paid your commission at all.
Commission structure can be confusing to understand in certain segments, even the commission analyst had difficulty explaining it firsthand.

Advice to Management

Fix commission structure so that it's easy to explain, and understand. This may not apply to all segments, but it does to some.
