      I have been working at CDW full-time

      Pros

      Nice building, 'ok' location, good access control

      Cons

      Benefits aren't good, clicky, progress via contacts not what you know. If you're in a 'gang' that includes management then that's ok.

      I have been working at CDW full-time

      Pros

      Very intelligent people work at CDW. Opportunities to grow and develop skills - providing these be approved.

      Cons

      Very few of the intelligent people are listened to. The management within Peterborough are without a doubt some of the worst i have encountered. They are passive aggressive, rude and disrespectful with tenancies to betray trust and bad mouth fellow coworkers. This has lead to my own personal mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, self harm and total destruction of confidence. If it wasn't for the intelligent...

      Advice to Management

      LOOK AT THE MANAGEMENT! look at the feedback you have been provided already and follow up on it. Don't just expect it to go away as this poor leadership is what is breeding the poor behavior. In so many cases the issues are with management above team leader level. If someone "isn't achieving" then the first question should be what has been done to help this coworker achieve. i could bet my life that the answer to this...

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

      Pros

      Intelligent coworkers with a vast array of experiences. Great initiative where Leaders visit sites and host the “Take the Lead” events. Interesting project work.

      Cons

      Being micro managed by a control freak, who only wants to create clones of herself. Quite frankly, I’ve never felt so depressed in a job and I put that 100% down to the Manager and her negative vibes. What could have been a fun and exciting role, became a total confidence wrecker.

      Advice to Management

      Knowledge does not always make a great Leader. When 3/4 members of small team leave in quick succession, someone should have been asking why! Don’t let your Managers destroy and manipulate people... encourage them to build individuals up and encourage their teams to succeed and not for their own ego!

      "Low salaries, unequal pay, lack of diversity, workplace bullying and poor leadership in the UK!!"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I have been working at CDW full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Flexible working makes work bearable.

        Cons

        Low salaries, unequal pay, lack of diversity and poor leadership in the UK. Bullying and harassment in the workplace occur frequently and harassment investigations are launched and persist for months. Management team in the UK consists of unskilled individuals, skilled staff receive low compensation and there are no salary reviews or performance reviews. The coworker services team is inept, the CWS should be replaced...

        I worked at CDW full-time

        Pros

        The hand dryers are superb in the toilets.

        Cons

        I have worked for CDW in 3 different capacities; Service Desk Analyst, Desktop Support Analyst (2nd line) and Onsite Support Analyst over a period of around 6 years so my opinion I would say is fair, balanced and not limited to one team or manager. On paper CDW appears to be an excellent way into IT for people who have a genuine interest or passion for technical support, sadly the reality is that if this is your first...
