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

Pros

Gartner's a rapidly growing company, and managed to performance numbers that increasingly tie to business value. This means that benefits and compensation are good, but there's a lot of change to adapt to. Co-workers are generally smart and cooperative (of course, there are always exceptions). The global nature of the business means that work can be very flexible.

Cons

As with any company tuned to growth, there can be long hours. And the focus on business growth - read metrics - can feel stifling.

Advice to Management

keep the growth up.

    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 Management

    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.

    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.
