    Current Employee - Research Director in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary is ok, you can work with a lot of smart people.
    "work at home" -- so you can look after your children and be flexible to work/life schedules.
    Good culture.

    Cons

    busy, long hours, a lot of travel, demanding, management increasingly measure you by metrics -- which is a bad thing currently and you have to chase all these numbers year by year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give back more time to analyst to do research.

    Current Employee - Account Executive SMB in Egham, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Account Executive SMB in Egham, England (UK)

    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.
