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

Pros

The training provided is next to none and gives new employees the tools to hit the ground running. Coming from a larger corporation, the culture here is a breath of fresh air. Everyone is ambitious and smart with a drive to do more. Friendly competition and collaboration is a staple of the everyday Gartner day and team outings and quarterly incentives puts Gartner a step above the rest. The Fort Myers office is brand new with state of the art technology and strong senior leadership.

Cons

Fort Myers is a little slow, so finding something fun to do takes some work.

    Pros

    Market footprint, interesting engagements and clients

    Cons

    High turnover, high and multiple personal quotas which if missed will result in termination regardless of prior contributions or tenure. Highly political, virtually no collaboration or sharing of IP as it is an "every man for himself" atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either position the consulting practice as a long term asset with strong growth potential and make the corresponding investment in the employees and collaboration efforts or sell the franchise. In consulting the only assets are the people, and they will not stay in an exploitive environment.

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

    Pros

    It's not unusual to find tenures of 10 or 20 years here, or people who decided to try something else for a while but then came back to Gartner. At the same time, the company is growing so there are always new faces and new ideas, and receptivity to fresh perspectives.

    The simplest way to say it is that Gartner is a company that does the right thing. The culture is collegial, the politics are kept to a minimum, the people are smart, and the best ideas usually win. It is scrupulously ethical in its business activities, respects its employees and treats us fairly, supports career and personal development goals, all while encouraging us to achieve more.

    I've been here over a decade and still love it.

    Cons

    Strong bias toward working in the office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
