Bid Desk Specialist I / II (Former Employee) –  Vernon Hills, ILOctober 17, 2018
I worked for CDW several years ago. It's a large company with room for both personal and professional growth. The company culture is outstanding with incredible co-workers.

Great Entry Level with Long-term Potential
Senior Account Manager - Higher Education (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 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.
Pros
Learning and Experience
Cons
Can be hard to get a promotion or move to a partner

Good entry level IT Sales position
Senior Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Cherry Hill, NJOctober 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.

Cultivates a Culture of Success
Corporate Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Cherry Hill, NJSeptember 27, 2018
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.
Cons
Lower base salary

Inconsistent practices for coworkers depending on what role they have. Programs are designed for one type of coworker. Inconsistent management of resources. Advancement is inconsistent.

Inconsistent equality among coworkerz

CDW middle of road
SENIOR ACCOUNT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 18, 2018
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.

Productive work place.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVSeptember 12, 2018
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.
Pros

Sales Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lincolnshire, ILSeptember 11, 2018
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.

It's ok for entry level jobs
Data Analyst, Sales Operations (Former Employee) –  Lincolnshire, ILSeptember 10, 2018
If you're young and looking for experience and an entry level job, this is the place for you. If you have a lot of experience then you may want to keep looking because management is almost parental.
Pros
Free food and swag
Cons
low pay and no autonomy or ability to shine
