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

Pros

high earnings potential. Great place to learn about computer technology. Never boring. Lots of growth opportunity.

Cons

Management has a tendency to treat most employees like they are in high school. If you are a seasoned professional it can be trying to go through training with mostly recent graduates who can be quite immature.

Advice to Management

help your reps close business. Try not to favor men over women.

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

    Pros

    The local team is very engaged and professional. Engage well with regional resources. Very positive working environment. Management has done a good job providing clear communication during a time of continued growth. Even with a lot of turnover of roles at corporate the information keeps flowing and we continue to grow. Commissions are good once you get a core group of accounts, it will take you 6-9 months.

    Cons

    Lots of information to absorb. Some confusion regarding new solutions and who to go for with questions. Not a huge barrier.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and communication.

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

    Pros

    Great day-to-day work environment. Typical sales floor consisting of teams clustered into pods where it's easy to get to know everyone around you.

    Cons

    During the interview, was told that I would be welcomed to the team with a book of business greater than $250,000. This was not met (about $180,000). Once on the team, was informed would be considered 'acquisition' meaning bringing new business in. After a year in a saturated market have maxed out new opportunities (about $1,000,000) in acquisition business. Numbers not enough to convince manager to give more opportunities within existing accounts. Very political and based on managers agenda. Not really a 'team' environment at all--every person for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Many large accounts not being properly worked. Give some to younger employees to grow this business while they have more time on their hands.
