I worked at Gartner

Pros

Great co. to work for, great opportunity to change roles and learn new responsibilities.

Comp is good (very easy to make 150K) and plenty of resources for support.

Cons

Depending on your role, travel can be a bit much....like 50%.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be as up front as possible when describing travel requirements. I was told it would be 3-5 trips a year and it turned out to be 50%.

    Pros

    Name recognition. If you are in IT, you are familiar with Gartner. Smart people, great vision, growing company with lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    As with many companies there are several layers of unnecessary managers that report to one another. Happy to be a part of this company, though sometimes I feel like I complete spreadsheets so that my manager can check a to do off the list. I have a great manager, so I am not complaining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Most of the people at Gartner are happy to be a part of your team. My only advice is to focus on the big picture and not metrics that have been created for the masses and not the individual.

    Pros

    Gartner has a solid benefits package. There have some smart people. If you are in sales and you miss your number, bye bye.

    Cons

    Analysts are aging fast and are overworked in some areas, others do next to nothing. Particularly true when so many cover Comms and literally do very little. 600 analysts? Sorry, only about 100 that are real analysts. The rest just count things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth - all the stock goes to Sr Managers.
