I have been working at Gartner full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Decent Salary level, excellent compensations. Good career opportunities. Good training programs.

Cons

massive employees turnover in sales SMB. If you inherited a bad territory you are in troubles and there's no way to escalate it. They don't take in count countries with bad economy (same price list for all Euro Countries) and UK price list is actually 30% cheaper and US price list is 50% cheaper. So it's difficult to sell in some territories: such as France, Italy, Spain, Portugal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should collect more feedback from the senior employees.

    Pros

    Brand is global, name opens doors and clients listen to you. Research is outstanding and there are experts in every IT field you can think of.

    Cons

    Difficult to overcome the assumption we are just a research house. Dont have the flexibility of a LLP given we are a public company. Very target orientated culture fail to hit your numbers and you're toast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less emphasis on targets will increase team work and increase productivity.

    Pros

    Fast paced, dynamic atmosphere, experiencing great growth against the current downward trends. Internal sales force young and driven, great compensation for sales

    Cons

    Limited promotion or career opportunities if you are based outside of CT HQ. Despite some progress still has a element of the 'boys club'.
