Current Employee - Principal Research Analyst
Current Employee - Principal Research Analyst

I have been working at Gartner full-time

Pros

- You are allowed huge portions of autonomy, which demands discipline
- Intellectual, almost academic atmosphere. You are surrounded by thought-leaders.
- Due to the strong brand, you get access to c-level at the clientele you are serving
- Working from home

Cons

- Processes have not caught up with Gartner now being a large-cap organisation. Ironically, since we are supposed to advise others on IT - our systems are terrible
- Workload can in periods be overwhelming - be prepared to erase boundaries between work and life.
- More and more metrics-driven, sometimes causing people to chase perverted incentives not good for the company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- see the person beyond the metrics

    Current Employee - Accounts Executive in Mumbai (India)

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    excellent brand name
    opportunties to interact with industry leaders
    great compensation
    respect in industry

    Cons

    India leadership team is bunch of jokers
    no help provided to sales team by managers and regional head
    regional head and managers waste their time discussing strategy rather than being on field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    change India management team and see the India sales team go high and high. Great talent but all wasted.

    Former Employee - Research Vice-President in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Research Vice-President in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Gartner full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working with a market leader, learning enormous amounts about how to manage, conduct business, interact with other companies

    Cons

    Gradual migration of responsibility to a few key members of a central US-based cabal. Terrible politics. Appraisal system designed to demotivate. Constant focus on measurement irrespective of whether it was a sensible thing to measure or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread real responsibility and genuine decision making around the world. Drop the stack ranking for appraisals as it has been wholly debunked on numerous occasions.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
