I have been working at Gartner

Pros

Vacation - if you get to use it
Backup research material at finger tips
Vendor Neutral
Good benefits package

Cons

No company stock options
Have to justify (and keep billing) when training, attending industry conferences
Smooth sailing when all is well, but expect rocky road and little communication until the hammer is dropped
Rewards the sales-oriented

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share the wealth - Gartner is a public company - recognition and improve on success by offering stock awards to employees
A process does not always a balanced system make (be prepared to use mitigation skils as necessary)

    Consider giving equity to senior directors and vice presidents so they can have a vested interest as well.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Very challenging and rewarding. Lots of opportunity. Can direct your own activities. Great working with clients.

    Cons

    Too bureaucratic. Front line management does a poor job. Long hours required. Travel can be onerous. Does not recognize extraordinary efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate the forced bell curve on annual review and recognize real efforts. Provide more admin support and cut out the needless bureaucracy.
