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

    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.

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Access to everyone, you have to turn down information and meetings; intelligent colleagues in order to discuss trends with; wide distribution of your research; freedom to create and explore; understanding managers (generally) who understand your needs

    Cons

    Heavy demands, not enough hours in the day; difficult to maintain work/life balance; managers aren't given a lot of room to manage; changing strategies; senior management that knows it needs to make changes to work needs, but doesn't; process, process, process; constantly changing strategies and initiatives; senior product people that suck

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the good people, the ones you know can help the company; cut out favoritism and corp. politics; reward and incent those that execute
