Former Employee - Account Executive in Egham, England (UK)

I worked at Gartner full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Fantastic office space based locally in Egham
'Gartner' brand opens many doors and is a very simple concept to sell
A comprehensive portal to access any relevant information required
Good salary with great commission rates
Regular team meetings and an open communication ethic
Social and networking opportunities
Sales cycle is fairly quick and targets/quota seemed achievable
Intelligent co-workers and a defined career progression path for high achievers
No loop-holes or questionable work ethics - completely Objective and Independent.

Cons

Work/Life Balance can become questionable for those with family/dependents - Live to Work is defnitely the ethos
Too much reliance on internal networking and forming alliances - tends to lead to bullying/harrasssment for those more focussed on work than socialising
Internal CRM absolutely dire with prospecting conducted from the internet and excel spreadsheets, leading to duplicate calling and internal conflict with team members.
Sales Training too disjointed and does not fall in line with actual work progression rate
Sexual harrassment, inequality, and favouritism, is rife within the office environment without any disciplinary procedures enforced by middle management
Very young/social environment, ideal for pre-30's only.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Enforce HR procedures to ensure a healthy working environment for all, not just those favoured by certain clique's. Brilliant sales/commission structure in place.

    Pros

    You can be an entrepeneur within Gartner, build your own practice. You have a lot of freedom in terms of work schedule. The environment is intellectually stimulating.

    Cons

    There's always way more work than you can successfully take on, you have to learn how to triage and say no.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more opportunities for analysts to socialize. Working from home is great but isolating.
