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 Management

- see the person beyond the metrics

    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 Management

    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


  2. Love the culture and the work ethic
