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

Pros

Good benefits, sales focused organization, work/life balance

Cons

under market compensation (accelerators are good, but not as many people are making their #s as you'd think - maybe 35%?)

They like to hire young people (mid-30s and younger) for sales, and they'll tell you that, too. The result is a very eager sales force that isn't taken seriously by CxO executives. The 'rah rah' part of the job tends to be a little JV.....

Over confidence in some product sets. Clients pay a premium for the services and don't always get the corresponding value.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Of course advisory services need to scale, but moving away from fact to face and towards phone or web interactions de-personalizes the services. Clients want to see the analysts. Pay more attention to consulting. The margins and scale aren't as sexy, but the consulting engagements are the ones that put Gartner higher up the value chain. Increase compensation by 15-20% and you will get better talent - not just inexpensive, eager talent.
