I have been working at Gartner full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Multicultural environment Brilliant minds all around you Promotion prospects in many areas

Cons

Results are ultimately king, promotion based on results only is perhaps a little dangerous. Some analaysts arrogance

Advice to Management

At some level (RVP or above, should take responsibility, i.e they should be the ones demonstrating leadership when split deals, M&A's etc are in discussion, not as is sometimes the case it is left for an AM to "Negotiate" the rules.

    Pros

    Great brand brand recognition across the IT industry, and generally very well respected with both sell side and buy side clients.

    Cons

    Difficult to see why so many approve of Hall, but then he did take over from Fleischer who was challenged as a leader. It's a simple business model. Hire more sales people to sell more product to more customers. Limit the investment in the source of the product (Research) until it reaches burn out. Use forced stat ranking to continuously drive up productivity. Reward the top 10%, berate the bottom 10% and encourage everyone else to work harder next year, while awarding lower than inflation merit awards. But it is a great time to be working at Gartner, especially if you're a CEO or SVP with all that stock to sell, having seen it rise phenomenally through all the hard work of those employees awarded 2% pay rises. Middle management is nearly always recruited from within, and has little idea of how to motivate people, which are the core of this business. It's actually amazing how the company can treat people so unfairly, yet still be so successful....or will it be short lived?

    Advice to Management

    Management hasn't taken any advice from employees for the last 6 years. Not sure it's going to start now.
