Very productive, very high in demand, gaining experiences under the technology field.
Technician Configs (Former Employee), North, Las VegasJune 16, 2014
Pros: experiences, that's quite it.
Cons: long hours, poor management, short breaks.
Forget raising a family in your personal life at home. You'll spend more time at work than with your kids and spouse. Coworkers are friendly, well only those who are temps since you see different faces every 2-3 months. I see a few comments that managements are great people, but through my expectation you're being deceived. They make you feel welcome – more... at first then the true nature exposes when your nothing but a tool working hard for them to reach their quota. Have I forgot to mention "favoritism." If you plan to work here, expect high demand of work. I am talking thousands and thousands of huge orders. Very repetitive, the challenge wares off when you realize déjà vu.

My only pros in this department is certification. Starting pay isn't that great but with every certs you obtained, you get a dollar raise, a maximum of 3 which boosts you just enough to survive this poor economy. Advancements are slim in CDW when it comes to department transfers. Best to take your certifications outside the company and make a lot more. – less

Lots of travel and time away from the family.
Senior Consulting Engineer - EMC - Storage (Current Employee), Vernon Hills, ILApril 29, 2014
Pros: lots of experience and great training available
Cons: in the air a lot flying across the country
The job itself was great with a lot of training available. But there is a lot of travel involved with this position. When you have a family it makes it tough, but they try to give where they can.

Great Sales Job
Account Manager (Current Employee), Voorhees, NJMarch 10, 2014
Overall I like working for CDW but sales is not the field I want to build my career in. If you love sales jobs, this job is great because your salary depends on the amount of sales you do each month.

People are great there.
Transition Specialist (Former Employee), Appleton, WIMarch 6, 2014
Pros: free coffee and sometimes lunch.
Cons: micro-managers.
Worked there for 6 years let go because the job title and responsibilities changed. In the beginning they were great and treated you like an adult. Then they started to micro manage. Overall a decent company I guess. Better for management position than an employee.

Good Fun Work
Configuration Technician (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: organized events
Cons: schedule can vary depending on productivity
A typical day at work in CDW is building PC systems and troubleshooting any errors as well as configuring the host for the intended use. The environment is really friendly and every section of this company is in one way or another connected so its easy to interact with co-workers or managers from another section. It's always busy which is nice unless – more... you take your time you might need to speed up depending on the number of tickets. – less
