I worked at Gartner full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Put in some time here and your rep will improve -- fortunately most outsiders don't see what's going on behind closed doors. If you have viable options, take them -- or look at Gartner as a way-station along the way. People do sometimes come back -- and then, often leave again because of the idiocy.

Cons

You're told to manage your time better if the shifting priorities make it necessary to, for example, reschedule a deliverable. Then you're faulted for missing the original deadline. Upper management is laughing all the way to the bank, and mid-management just follows the company line and can't rationalize what is irrational here. The morale is poor; people compete rather than cooperate. But the pay and benefits are good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Time for a refresh in how management treats production, sales, research, consulting, events....

    Pros

    My manager explained that she hired competent employees and they knew what needed to be done.

    Cons

    The departments did not work together to get new clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the departments work together and not against one another and the client experience would be much better.

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

    Pros

    - Good people. Gartner prides itself on hiring intelligent, self motivated and driven individuals and provides you with the opportunity to drive your own career.
    - Room for improvement. Gartner openly acknowledges it can and needs to get better and embraces employee contributions to accomplish this. They empower you to take a hands on role in new initiatives and processes.
    - Gartner actively listens to its employees and values your opinion

    Cons

    - Company is very numbers driven and often makes decisions based upon numbers to the street and not whats best for the business.
    - Sales and Research are king. Other business units are not always treated with the same degree of importance (not interest in advertising consulting or putting in the same type of effort to build the consulting practice)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best companies don't manage to the expectations of the street. Do what is best for each business unit and the rest will take care of itself.
