    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    people are friendly, desk space is neat, but hours are awful, no work from home for new people

    Cons

    way over worked, no work from home for new people, hours are terrible

    Advice to Management

    ease up on all the extra month end processes, they're stressful, also the hours are HORRIBLE, please stop this 9 to 6, 10 to 7 shift and working after 7pm on month ends, this is the worst experience. It's too difficult to work that late and if agents don't volunteer to work late, they look bad.
