Former Employee - Consultant in New York, NY
Former Employee - Consultant in New York, NY

I worked at Gartner full-time (more than an year)

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.

    Pros

    Compensation, hours, winners circle destinations and recognition programs

    Cons

    Your enjoyment of this role is strongly contingent on the territory and manager you are assigned. Some managers are excellent resources who will help you develop your skills and meet your financial and career goals. Some are selfish, political hacks who only make things more difficult. Then again if you just keep your head down and bust your hump you can make a ton of money. Plus, there is enough turnover at the higher levels that a strong sales record is all you need to advance (some sooner than later).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers that help reps develop their skills, understand the products and industry, and build out realistic plans for a territory will help cut down on the extremely high turnover. Managers that spend all their time in their cubes modifying their target comp spreadsheet and poring over call stats are useless.
