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

    Pros

    Part of larger company in the US

    Cons

    This is an American Caucasian senior mgmt company, which needs desperate change and more diversity. They have people in senior roles not because of their ability or substance but purely because of their colour. They hire coloured people as consultants to do the hard work of cleaning up their books in accounting and treat them badly. They are a tech company but far behind with anything remotely connected with technology.

    I worked at CDW UK full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    On paper the company looks good so an easy pitch to clients

    Cons

    Awful management. Zero decision making and nepotism is rife along with back stabbing. The people who are being brought in are not good calibre but its more about the inept managers feeling better than everyone they've hired. Not sure how long before the cracks can't be hidden away from view but its only a hardware reseller that is losing ground daily

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at CDW UK full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The flexibility that CDW gives its employees is amazing. Within professional services we have a utilisation target of 65% which enables each consultant sufficient time to keep up to date with new technologies, certification and professional development. You always feel that management care about your wellbeing and work hard to ensure that there are no day to day issues by giving the support needed to each employee. Work life balance at CDW is amazing as I am still able to spend a lot of time with my young family.

    Cons

    The only con would be that it can take some time to make some decision that require senior management. Although I imagine this is still quicker than most companies.

    Approves of CEO

    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).
