Sales manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 13, 2018
CDWs strategy is to hire young, talented people and mold them into very savvy professionals. The catch is you will be under paid for average work and only when your work is exceptional will you make some serious income. It’s a good place for people who work hard and have ambition. If you plan to coast, you won’t make much money. Leadership within the company is good in most places. Some leaders- those that have been at CDW 20+ years- need to be replaced.

simply a good group of people that can make it fun to work. managers are not well trained and tend to not share information with each other . A lot of things to be involved with a a lot of community outreach.

Great company to start out within an I.T Role. Downside is base pay and you need to get lucky with your book of business. I lucked into great account but many of my coworkers could not make 50 dollars a month in commission.

if your looking to get into a fortune 500 company, CDW is a good bet. depending on what position your going for. But you might get a chance to learn on technology, customer service, sales and project management.
lots of opportunity
its a BIG corporation, so your just another number.

Company is very goal oriented and mindful of employees. A lot of privileges and benefits to doing the job according to management. The only real down fall is the lack of imagination and innovation. Performance is strictly measured by numeric tangibles rather than a dedication to craft and customer experience. Leaders beware followers wanted.
Account Representative (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 14, 2018
For me it just wasn't the right fit of where I wanted my career to go. I believe the Management is there for the right reasons and they truly want to see their employees succeed. However, the work was mundane and I didn't like my entire salary being based almost always on commission.

Great company to get your feet wet in tech. There's so much technology that's ever changing. The constant change of hard and software made things a little difficult to follow but that's why you need to find your niche in the particular technology that you understand, like, and is also profitable to you.

CDW really is a great place to work at - there are so many different roles available.. Channel account manager, partner, sales, IT, etc... There are a ton of benefits, too.. depending on your role you get freebies (clothes (patagonia, columbia, nike, etc.), food, electronics, etc.). Only issue is the pay - you are compensated less than most anywhere else for the same job (but you get a ton of benefits!)
