Senior Account Manager - Higher Education (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 17, 2018
CDW is great at developing and nurturing fresh talent, primarily in a first job out of school capacity. While there is distinct favoritism and sometimes style over substance, if you sell well you can be very successful. With that, it is luck of the draw to what segment/market you will be selling into.
Learning and Experience
Can be hard to get a promotion or move to a partner
Senior Account Manager (Former Employee) – Cherry Hill, NJ – October 7, 2018
The base salary is very low. It is great job out of college and great start into the IT sales field. Cold calling is a must. Your customers in the book of business is hand down accounts the tenured reps do not want. Minimum of two hours of phone time and over a hundred calls a day.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with CDW. They have truly created a culture that provokes all who are apart to achieve high measures of success. Whether it be though their training program to begin a career with CDW - eliminating those who are not knowledgable or fruitful - and then proceeding with continued education, encouraged relationship building events both in and out of the office, and professional groups available to all. I would highly suggest all to apply and come ready to work but also come expecting success to be available.

CDW was a great place to start a career and learn the ropes of not just IT and sales, but many aspects of modern industry, However it's a culture of complacency and if you are looking for a more rewarding contribution to your career other than just being a robot for a paycheck, it's not a permanent career.

They do not know how to keep workers working there. They over work, and don’t pay too much attention to the contractors. They fire and hire people weekly, there’s so much going on with them. The management does not care about what you have going on in life, they will fire you for any reason.

Decent company and culture but know that they are fully aware CDW compensates lower than in similar companies. If you join the company just know that raises and advancement take time and may not meet your expectations.

They tell you that you have the possibility to make a lot of money if you put in the time. Realistically it is very different than what they tell you. If you have experience look for a different company
