I'd like to know this as well.
They are eliminating 200 jobs Jan 2nd and still making employee's go into the office two days a week to slap us in the face.. They didn't learn from the incident in 2018 with Jesse Pajente, 35. its sickening.. and the Cover ups keep coming!!
What's everyone's feeling? My gut says a new round is in the works. Thoughts?
I don't have much hope that we'll soon have fewer layers of leadership, but I believe that a lot of us here feel that the company would prosper if it got rid of most of them?
Anyone else have the sense that there will be another round of layoffs and contraction coming in early Q3?
I remember reading something about another restructuring coming our way, what happened with that? Is that still in play or can we move on from that rumor, considering that it's been several weeks since it was last mentioned? I'm just trying to... — read more
Not sure how CDW gets positive ratings by Forbes. Unless of course they are asking coworkers who fear repercussions for not spouting what management crams down every ones throats. That or Forbes is asking upper management who are raking in bonuses... — read more
Staying here and working twice as hard as before while the company refuses to fill any of the many open positions and not being rewarded for it with a proper raise or bonus is worse. If you are laid off, you can get a normal job while you have some... — read more
Serious inquiry here. Do you believe that participation in a Business Resource Group (BRG) is “needed” to move up the ladder? The obvious answer is “it doesn’t hurt” sure, but do you believe it’s needed? I ask because I’ve been working on getting... — read more
I’m a UK coworker and haven’t heard of anyone being laid off ‘across the pond’. Of course the UK will have had its share. Does anyone know of numbers or departments affected here?
According to the CRN article yesterday: "CDW’s CEO, president and chairwoman received $11.1 million in total compensation in 2022, according to SEC filings. That’s about 24 percent more than her total compensation the year prior." And others like... — read more
I don't remember ever so many people looking to get out of here as soon as possible? Obviously, there are very few who think that better days are coming...
The "my network is your network" posts on LinkedIn are nauseating. It's the new "thoughts and prayers".
I've heard different forecasts: CDW will do better than other tech companies CDW will suffer headwinds this year. Is this just a blip on the radar screen, and will CDW return to the "no layoffs" company it used to be? Or is this a sign of... — read more
I know it included at least 3 months of health insurance in the US and that the payout was based on tenure and/or rank. I don’t know anyone who was laid off well enough to ask how many weeks of severance they got. This info could be relevant for... — read more
Yes, we were told layoffs are done, but I don't trust this management anymore. Plus, if the next round is in a month or two, they can always say the all-clear was for this specific layoff, and that's all. I don't think I'll be able to properly relax... — read more
Not affected by the layoff, but my team was. The determination of "who" was affected seemed to be very biased toward "legacy CDW" people staying and "acquired talent" being laid off. The truth is, it should have been the other way around. CDW seems... — read more
Truth: Around 500-600 people in a company with over 14K people which has been growing fast for its size is comparatively not a large layoff. While most are probably nice people, it seems as though 95% of those let go were a drag on the company who... — read more
It was a very unpleasant surprise to find out who from my team was affected… This is exactly what motivated me to look for a way out of here more actively now than ever... I guess I'm not the only one?
I got to boot two months ago during the first tiny wave of layoffs. When I asked about the layoff, they told me not not call it a layoff but instead to say “my role was eliminated” or “my contract is over early”.. I knew something shady was up. So... — read more
I'm not sure who made the decision on who to lay off, but I can say with certainty that they made several major mistakes. We lost some excellent folks today whose absence will be felt, that's for sure. It feels like sometimes the management can't see... — read more
Im wondering how badly different teams will be affected. I can already see the struggle and worry in some folks... hang in there.
Those that have gotten the worst news, would you be willing to share the dept you were in?
No follow-up mail means you are safe.
Good luck, everybody.
As an employee, I received an email that layoffs are happening today
If I was a betting man, I'd say that we might be looking at layoffs today. And if not today, then next week for sure.
Is there anybody here who has concrete info about the coming layoffs? We all know something is going to happen, but nobody seems to be willing to share anything beyond that. A lot of people are stressing over this, so if you could help and clear out... — read more
Just seen the internal memo on layoffs at the first of the year 2023. Possibly, at the end of 2022.
Is CDW done with layoffs? Or was this just round one?
CDW is laying off 2% of their employees today
As a freelance reporter, I have recently seen CDW has lost a few of it largest contributors in the company. I will report more in the future as details are trickling in.
Total count and any other breakdown you may have.
CDW should be ashamed of itself for what happened today in Chicago. Out of respect, I will not include any names or details. However, as a coworker I will speak up. What does it say about your company culture when someone calls you out in a suicide... — read more
S3 (aka data center solutions) is rolling out a tool to track coworkers' activity, literally by the hour. Lots of whispering among coworkers that this is just a way for CDW to collect data on employees and start laying off staff they deem... — read more
First CDW is just a technology e-tailer and nothing more. There is competition and it's gaining every day especially Amazon. CDW's pricing isn't the best and it's customers know. CDW tries to differentiate itself by services it offers, but not... — read more
