Great place to learn sales. Typical day consists of cold calls and sending quotes to new customers. You must continually grow your book of business or it will be difficult to stay more than one year.

Marketing Operations Senior Manager (Current Employee), Vernon Hills ILSeptember 22, 2014
Pros: middle management comradery
Cons: no room for senior management growth
CDW is a great place to work, I've grown both personally and professionally during my tenure within CDW. Currently, the challenges reside in senior management and the ability to grow into a more refined senior management role. The hardest part is knowing change can be made however there isn't room to grow additional director and VP level roles.

Great place start to get your foot in the door of the IT industry. Exposure to various different technologies and vendors. Great job culture, but compensation is low and it's difficult to advance your career in the sales side of the organization.

Technical Support Analyst (Current Employee), Eatontown, NJAugust 12, 2014
Answering incoming calls from customers and performing Level 1 technical support to determine what assistance is needed. I've learned a lot about troubleshooting and different hardware products. Co-workers are awesome and knowledgeable, always willing to answer any questions. Hardest part of the job is being somewhat new to all the procedures. Most – more... enjoyable is the atmosphere and the people I work with. – less

Account Manager (Former Employee), Chandler, AZJuly 28, 2014
Working on the front line of a Fortune 500 company was an excellent experience for me. I was able to jump to the top of my hiring class and prove myself on my team. I started with a $250,000 book of business and built that up to $950,000 over the course of 6 months. I learned how to provide excellent service in the technology industry.

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
