Featured Review

Current Employee - Account Manager

I have been working at Softcat full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Care for their Employees. Work Hard Play Hard. Praise and reward employees when earned. Great attitude to diversity and bettering the company.

Cons

The sales role can consume your life

Current Employee - Solutions Specialist

I have been working at CDW UK full-time for more than a year

Pros

Working with a wide range of customers and experienced, knowledgable coworkers, great support from across the business, being given personal responsibility and accountability, the ability to manage... your own workload, flexible working arrangements (being home-based with the freedom to travel as needed), great salary and benefits, career progression, exposure to technology, customer engagement is actively encouraged, and there's great access to and interaction with senior management.

Cons

The dynamism and fast pace of the business can be a tad overwhelming, to begin with, but is offset by the support from coworkers in all areas, especially technology, sales, and Coworker Services (HR).

Advice to Management

Please carry on doing what you're doing (but maybe update the Glassdoor site as we're still talking about Kelway!)
