The salaries are too little to disregard. Highly qualified staff are severely under-compensated while sale teams are very highly paid. Benefits are also substandard in my opinion with a 2-year probation to receive full employee benefits.
Lots of food, culture is good
Low pay, long hours for technical staff
really good experience and a faced paced environment to challenge you critical thinking. The management in the purchasing department are all very kind and productive team!
free bagels on Wednesdays!
CDW has got worse to work for as time went on. I would not have spent 11 years there if I had something that paid me as much commission as they did. However, I worked hard for that money, didn't come easy. You have to put up with a lot of internal bull.
very competitive workplace with lots of advantages and opportunities to make, but extremely stressful
-expectations are 80 calls minimum; cold calls to new potential clients -follow ups, building a book of business and making sure your payout is correct from spiffs to commission being correct- is all on you -you have to rely on unreliable individuals to process pricing and orders -management sees what they want, will document and use specific examples to halt your career development if you challenge them (even by asking reasoning behind actions or ask questions)

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
a typical day at work included making calls out to customers on an average i was in the office 9-10 hours currently not the biggest fan of new management The hardest part of the job is cold calling the most enjoyable part is free events and parties. There are alot of perks
If you work your butt off for 2 years and get placed into a profitable region/vector, you will succeed at CDW. It is a continuous grind that may pay off in the long run. Very high turnover rate.
Cool office, free food all the time, extensive training
No work life balance, archaic CRM, no working from home
The company does not care at all about the success of its sales people. Opportunities for professional growth are limited. Accounts and territories are consistently reduced and or taken by fellow employees who are supposed to be 'team members'. The organization is setup in such a way that sales people often feel more competition from their fellow co-workers than from actual competitors. If you are looking for a role in sale I recommend looking elsewhere.
My direct boss
Everything else about the organization
Good opportunity to start your career as well as place to continue if you can manage to stick with it. Managers are great to work with and company is a manage up environment.
Managers and environment
Inside sales, little opportunity to work from home or remote.
