Pros

As an analyst you have a great deal of freedom in terms of the research to focus on and develop. Most analysts are experienced professionals and thus management oversight is generally light.

Cons

The company develops solid research but it needs to become more aggressive with respect to the development of thought leading research.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Re-think the performance metrics to further leading edge research.

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Consultant
    Current Employee - Consultant

    Pros

    Collegial culture with intellectual rigor, which is a result of its Research heritage, creates an attractive environment for personal growth. Career path opportunities are endless across the entire company. Still behaves like a growth company with young aspiring smart professional people. Company is still hiring aggressively while other professional firms entrenched over last five years. Stock has done very well and has been rewarded by Wall Street due to its strong leadership and management. This is a place to come to for the rest of your career or as a valuable stop along the way. Many former Gartner employees return which is a testament to the company as a desirable place to work.

    Cons

    Use to provide stock options to reward many employees. Now only provides a stock purchase program similar to other organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pursuing current goals and objectives. While evolving the company to meet the demands of a changing IT advisory environment, make sure the unique Gartner culture is not slowly eroded over time. A culture of open, honest, and professional debate where competing ideas are rewarded and flourish in a collegial atmosphere of trust and respect. Other companies talk it, Gartner has been able to walk it. It would be tragic if this someday becomes mis-aligned.
