Fast Paced Company but poor management
SENIOR BID DESK SPECIALIST: PURCHASING (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 September 2017
CDW is the number 1 Reseller in Canada. The company is fast paced and competitive. Work Life balance is still at its infant stages as work from home technology is still improving. Some managers are completely deflective of job responsibilities, yet persist due to higher management connections.
Pros
new, state of the art building, lots of advancement
Cons
poor management in Purchasing, long hours

Bid desk specialist (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON9 August 2017
Automation.
Every day learn a new thing.
Can work 1 day in the week from home.
Management team is not as strong as the CFO AND CEO.
The most enjoyable of the job is seeing every one working above and beyond.
Pros
Free lunch and some days breakfast
Cons
9 hour shift

Ever seen the movie "Boiler Room"??
Corporate Sales Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON18 May 2017
The only thing that matters to CDW is sales. SALES SALES SALES. It doesn't matter if they customer is satisfied, only that the sale is made. It doesn't matter if we sell them a solution that isn't in the best interest of the customer, only that the sale is made. It doesn't matter if you've been working an account, or found a new account that wasn't being worked, as management will take it away and give it to one of their "stars", who quite frankly don't need more easy money. Glad to be out of that snake pit.

I will say though, that many of the sales reps were good people, but the company really doesn't care about anything but the all mighty dollar.
Pros
Free lunches, learning about new vendors/products
Cons

Based on a respectable salary and unlimited commissions, so the money really isn't the issue if you're willing to work for it. The people are great and totally make the job.
Pros
Prizes, Games, Food and GREAT people!
Cons
Management is always re-active, Leadership is constantly changing

High turnover

Not a great place if you're trying to build your career. Management is always MIA, there is a lot of favoritism, work is never appreciated, and people are constantly micro managed.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons
Terrible People

Big income potencial, but a grind
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 September 2012
The management are quite honest when they tell you it's hard work, but there is the potential to make a lot of money. Even though the title of "Account Manager" sounds good, it's really just a glorified call centre job.
Pros
lots of free food, free swag, and prizes
Cons
it's a life of cold calling
