I have been working at CDW (More than 10 years)

Pros

Strong culture and balanced focus on core, customers, partners, development opportunities and work/life in general. CDW has clout in the industry and it will help you open doors and get things done.

Cons

Some business units can operate in a vacuum. Field sales and the inside sellers can compliment each other greatly or seemingly operate as two different organizations. Nothing too concerning

    Pros

    The People - excellent people to work with at all level. Sure they have a business to run yet the culture is great.
    The Resources - there are tremendous resources (specialist, trainings, etc). You just have to take advantage of them being offered. Too often, employees do not utilize them.
    The Collaboration - truly a team atmosphere with help that is available from many different teams (pre-sales, specialist, service specialist, financing, operations, etc)

    Cons

    Training for managers is slim. Career development is and should be important to many people. They do a great job promoting from within yet once you get to management, the training and development of the skill set necessary to grow is very slim.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on truly training your leadership team. It will allow for greater growth long term if you can retain you top talent as they move up within the organization.

    Pros

    Tons of internal resources. You'll never go hungry. There's always free lunches and happy hours going on. Good training program. Very friendly and helpful atmosphere among your coworkers. Vendors are awesome.

    Cons

    The pay is garbage. Horrible base and the commission structure is only lucrative for the top 5%. Your manager can make or break your career. If you get stuck with a bad one, hopefully you recognize it early and you transfer to a different department as soon as you can. The new hire classes just get worse and worse, but they're often rewarded with reassigns because management is afraid of losing them at an even higher rate. Regionalization in small business is a joke. If your region is bad, good luck.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your veteran sales reps. Very few changes over the last few years have benefitted them. It's been about trying to keep newer reps from leaving.
