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

Pros

Management is very concerned with employee experience. Feedback is solicited on a regular basis and management does respond to both positive and negative trends. Company policy offers a flexible working environment, helping employees to achieve that elusive "work-life" balance.

Cons

Career advancement, especially outside of sales, feels limited for those working in satellite offices who cannot relocate to HQ for promotions. Salaries are low and don't seem to be adjusted for higher cost of living areas.

Advice to Management

Stop focusing so much on metrics when evaluating employees. There is a lot of gray in between the black and white that is not reflected in the current system.
