Need to improve work-life balance. Management needs to be more clear on what the workloads really are are.

I have been working at Gartner full-time

Pros

- Great organizational knowledge and willingness to share
- Wonderful platform to propel a person into the limelight
- Solid business execution

Cons

- Analysts and Sales (especially in high demand areas) experience no work life-balance situation
- Management has become disconnected from the realities of being an employee, making changes that only add to process workload and do little to move the needle.
- Focused too heavily on Wall Street. Research changes and focus on generating money now effecting quality of output and quality of life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop focusing so much on moving our stock, focus on the customer rather than measurements of internal activities and the stock will continue to move. Be good by making sure your employees are not burnt out, and it will be reflected in the market.

    Pros

    Great brand, globally recognized company. Cultural experience really depends on the office...I'm sure it's great in some locations and not so great in others. If you are not in Stamford, however, you're out of the loop.

    Cons

    High pressure/high quota and results driven sales organization which does not allow for use of personal style. Extremely regimented with sales territories becoming very small due to high hire rate on a global scale. Cultural experience really depends on the office...I'm sure it's great in some locations and not so great in others. If you are not in Stamford, however, you're out of the loop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To senior sales management I would say rely less on internal personal friendships/relationships to determine whom you place in Area Manager & RVP roles and more on tenure & success at company. Internal, personal/friendships are not always the best choice based on experience with managing seasoned sales reps.
