    Pros

    Very generous vacation and semi- flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Very 'who you know' or 'who you kiss up to' culture. No raises. Have earned less each year over the past 5 years. Health insurance went to crap after Obamacare was passed. No recognition unless you are buddies with management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start seeing what your people do and give them recognition. Stop taking credit for work your reports do and start actually managing. Senior management has no clue and if you have an opinion or a suggestion just keep it to yourself or you will be labeled with an attitude.

    Consulting is considered a red-headed step-kid to Research

    Pros

    Gartner has a very strong name and reputation in the tech community, mostly from its research, on-the-spot analysis in the media, and the over-the-top events it hosts for customers.

    Cons

    Research is the king of everything that is done at Gartner. Essentially everything else is designed to support the growth and sales of research product. Consulting is a "third tier" activity that is supposed to amplify research for its customers, but since it costs more to produce consulting than research, it is often left to make its own way. There is no clear progression for staff, as it is a firm designed much more for a seasoned professional than junior staff. They do not offer training opportunities to staff, there is no clear mentoring, and no real supervision, except on a project by project basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider investment in real human capital programs for staff across the board. Develop objective career progression ladders, and establish a true staff management structure rather than the existing counselor program.
