    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at CDW full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    CDW Does a good job of hiring & training sales professionals who often have little to no business acumen. if you're coming out of school & are looking for a job where you will learn a ton & build a book of contacts to sell IT to; CDW is a great option. Great training, great compensation, vendor relationships are second to none

    Cons

    Field Account Executives provide no value, Sales Managers love to micromanage to prove themselves essential.

    Your success is in your hands, especially when paid by commission (but most people don't see this as a bad thing)!
