"In the recent years the company has been focused on helping promote women into leadership through various programs and supportive ways. The recent changes in the EC and SVP level are an example. Understanding its work life HARMONY and not a true balance will help set realistic expectations for you. Sometime you give some, sometimes you take some. Opportunities are available for you to capitalize and feedback is valued. "
"CDW really is a great place for women. Not only is our CEO a women, but there are a lot of other women in senior roles. They truly make you feel valued for simply being a coworker. "
"CDW have provided me many opportunities to grow within the organization. I have built relationships with coworkers that will help me succeed in my future endeavors!"
"Our company is decently focused on promoting women right now. It's tough, because it's an industry that typically doesn't have a high female population. However, if you show you can work hard and learn, the company absolutely recognizes that and does what they can to help you move up. "

"Looking at our co-worker hierarchy, our CEO is a woman followed by 7 other inspiring women. My manager is a woman. My closest friend here is a woman that I am proud to have watched be promoted twice in 4 years. I am treated as equal by all my peers, no matter gender, race, age etc. I have been enabled to grow in my career, speak up and balance my life as I see fit to thrive personally and professionally. There is no greater place to work than CDW. "
"CDW has been a great place to develop myself and my career. There are so many supportive women in different areas of the business that are willing to sit down and have a chat, regardless of what the topic is. "
"There are some strong female leaders at the top of the organization; though the mid-level leadership is sparse on women. The company recognizes this and has been working to promote and higher more women, there is still a ways to go."
"CDW is very employee focused and really does strive to find the best ways to serve our customer and their employees. "

"CDW is not only supportive of our careers but ensuring we have a good work life balance so we can have the best in both worlds "

"CDW is a great place to work. Most importantly every person Matters! As a team we work together."
"CDW has been extremely flexible with my hours and work/life balance as a working mom. I'm also impressed by the continuous movement of women into senior leadership roles. Like anywhere, there might be areas where we can improve, but I have confidence that women are an equal and key part of CDW and I expect we will only continue the momentum."
"Great coworkers, culture and leadership. Leaders want you to succeed and the company as a whole has been supportive and flexible during COVID-19."

Mentorship and flexible work schedules are just a few of the great perks for women working at CDW. I have been here for 18 years and a huge part of my long tenure is due to the culture and opportunities for advancement for women."

"CDW offers opportunities for networking and professional development frequently. Coworkers are given several resources for personal and professional development. The leaders at CDW are empowering, supportive and want you to succeed. "
"Great place that allows you to have a career and be there for your family."
"At CDW, not only do I feel like an equal to my male counterparts, I also feel just as valued as our leadership. With a female CEO and multiple female C-level and VP executives, I am inspired daily about what my future potential is here. The majority of teams offer great work/life balance, and while we are a larger company of nearly 9,000 coworkers, CDW continues to maintain that "small company" feel. Our leadership is genuine and accessible and coworkers are open and supportive to each other."
"Flexibility is key here. Being a working parent, that's incredibly important."
"The camaraderie that I've experienced here makes my workday so enjoyable. Coworkers - CEO, everyone is so understanding of the work/life balance. Having this type of atmosphere and enjoyment for my work makes me a better and more successful employee."
"It's tough, really tough. Depending on your location, you'll work with talented and experienced female leadership. If you're really thick skinned, don't care about work/life balance, you could have a great experience."
"Talk to people who work with the people/manager that you might be working with. Try to get them to tell you how they honestly feel and not the politically correct answers. As with anywhere, there are some "leaders" in the company that act more like children and there can be some really tough areas to work in."
"CDW's top leadership tells the story of how women are valued and promoted here! Our CEO, COO, CHRO, EVP for our Solutions and Services Business area as well as our EVP for Corporate Sales are ALL women! And each one a strategic, empathetic and innovative leader. I couldn't be more proud of the story CDW could tell about how women can make a difference here!"

"CDW is a great environment if you are looking to move into leadership as a woman. The path in the beginning may be hard, because of the industry, not the company. The companies' BRG's (Business Resource Groups) are meant to assist with that beginning path and anyone can join one at anytime. "

"Overall, its a good place to work. The in-office culture is laid back, although it is male dominated. Most of the women here are in executive leadership positions (C-level) while it seems that the actual sales manager positons are dominated by men. There is definitely room to move up within the organization as a female."

"The culture is amazing and we have a strong network of female leaders in the company. Despite all the positive, we have to remember we still work in a very male dominated industry and need to continue to improve the perception of women in it. The company has room for improvement in regards to paternity leave; company offers 3 days paid paternity leave with the option to use vacation time to supplement."

"CDW has great work/life balance while allowing you to think outside the box and allowing you to contribute with new ideas to help the business grow. They are passionate about feedback from all employees and take action to improve based on coworker feed back."
"If you are authentic and have talent, CDW is the place for you!"
"If you are in the right department, and make the right connections, it is a terrific place to work. First impressions carry on forever."
"Don't expect to be paid as much as others in the market, or as much as the men at this company"
"If you are looking for upward movement in IT this is not the place. It's a man's world."
"That CDW supports and encourages diversity. The company has a strong focus on promoting and further developing women into the best workers they can be regardless of their background. "
"Diversity is part of our culture at CDW, not just something that is talked about, but how we live. It's not just diversity though, women have a voice at CDW and our executive team represents that."
"You have to have a strong mind and be bold. "
"Be prepared for exciting work! The company runs lean in corporate offices functions, solid investment in Sales functions. In a role that is more support or back office, you will play the range in work from analysis to strategy. "
"There is a good chance that you will be physically and verbally assaulted by a coworker, but because he is an old, white man, when you complain HR will tell you that "he has a hearing problem" and "you misinterpreted the situation." "
"Women are treated equally at CDW. My opinion and viewpoints are accepted and my ideas are put into motion without question."

"CDW is a great place to work! I recently became a new mom and they were very accommodating throughout my pregnancy to delivery and when I returned to work. "
"CDW recognizes that you have commitments outside of this company. This is important because whether you have children or not, the company encourages a balance that caters to you individually. CDW is an amazing corporation that allows each person to be their genuine self. It is also a company that is caring by routinely giving back to local communities through fundraising efforts and volunteer availabilities that may have a deep-rooted meaning to you personally. CDW sponsors periodic friends/family events at local museums and/or kid friendly establishments that is such a terrific way to create a memorable experience on your time."
"CDW is very dedicated to reaching out to women in technology as there is still a huge shortage overall of women in the IT industry. By actively participating in organizations and events to promote CDW to women as well as minorities, I am proud of my company for being aggressive about it."
