    I worked at CDW full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great bunch of people to work for, great services and varied work

    Cons

    Unfortunately as the majority of their employment is done on fixed term contracts you never really know where you stand, you can deliver high levels of profit and quality work but still have your contract terminated. Whilst I finally got an offer to extend mine in the last week, and would of enjoyed to stay working there I had already made plans to move and commitments. Earlier engagement, and long term career planning would of seen me stay there longer.

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Peterborough, England
    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    A good work/life balance is promoted and quarterly targets make it clear what is expected of you (even if they are a bit stressful to achieve).

    Cons

    Despite what the marketing says, the company doesn’t have much of a “family” atmosphere. As many people have worked there for years and years (not including the service desk), they are very cliquey and new people aren’t made to feel welcome. There isn’t really any career progression available and the systems used are very outdated and behind the times.

    I worked at CDW full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They make a lot of money and have offices all over the world. That's where it ends.

    Cons

    Where to start. I did not have a good time at CDW UK probably the most unhappy I have ever been in a job. Boss yelled all the time in the office dreaded going into the office which I have never had in all of my working life. Constantly held back and was not allowed to improve. I am glad to say in my new role and my team are amazing and enjoy going to work now and CDW is a distant memory. It makes such a difference having a nice boss never had thought about it before as I had never had a bad one. Also, the computers look like they are running Windows 98 and Navision god knows what version. Also, you don't exist to Management unless your sales. I would never recommend CDW to anyone.
