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

Pros

Surrounded by amazing people, team environment and great incentives.

Cons

Old systems, and becoming way too process centric.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too much process and not enough decision power at the employee level removes people's ability to think for themselves. This amount of process makes a part of the brain shut down and creative juices stop flowing because we can no longer help solve business problems on our own. Direct contribution is not what it used to be. So many layers of process and administration now bogs us down.

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to work with some of the brightest people in the industry and the environment fosters shared learning and continued associate development.

    Cons

    Easy to work 50+ hours per week which can cut into home life. Sometimes the work/life balance is not 'balanced'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk around the campus every once in a while and engage with your associates informally. A greeting as you walk among the associates' work area lets them know they are valued.

    Pros

    They are a very loyal employer who takes care of their employees

    Cons

    Being a research company they are very "formulaic" in their approach to sales. Ie. You need to make this many phone calls to get this much in sales. Which of course makes sense but they monitor you like big brother and ask for a lot of reporting on these activities which takes up your time that you could be DOING the activity. They are growing like crazy though so it works for them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees more, engage them more
