Fabulous people, fast pace
Systems Engineer III (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIAugust 31, 2017
Was part of team migrating external clients into COLO datacenter, of moving to pure hosting environment. Management was awesome, but as is the nature of this beast we were moving in older not-always-well-supported systems and applications, which made most moves a series of one-off migrations.
Pros
Great people, great culture! Supportive on all levels.
Cons
None.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Eatontown, NJAugust 28, 2017
CDW is a very corporate entity. Employees are required to make a minimum amount of daily cold calls. Little help was given and it was a sicknor swim mentality. Once a book of business was established compensation was decent.
Pros
Culture
Cons
Cold calls

Account Manager (Current Employee) –  MassachusettsAugust 23, 2017
Everyone is being forced to sell. Not taken lightly.
Managers are out for themselves and gas light to get what they want. Pay is dismal and perks are few and far between.

Contractual Technical Support (Former Employee) –  IllinoisAugust 22, 2017
Fast paced, dynamic environment. The environment was opportunistic. The people were talented and great. I would recommend this job to others because it's a lot of room to grow. The training program is great and they want the employees to succeed.

A Productive work place.
Drop Ship Associate (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Lincolnshire, ILAugust 21, 2017
I had the opportunity to temp there twice! It's an ok place to work for. They hire a great team of people but it's a high turn over of people as well. Management want numbers, numbers, numbers which makes your weeks very stressful, but at the end of each quarter, they compensate the stress with freebies and food!
Pros
Lots of Free Lunches, other Freebies!

Assistant Manager/computer technician (Former Employee) –  Vernon Hills, ILAugust 14, 2017
Easiest job to handle, it's more likely like a job with better benefits and good hours to complete your hours of missing days. Great job to relax and have more practice on fixing computers.
