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

Pros

Informal culture, really smart people, very business focused, no B.S. place. Delivers a product that doesn't harm the environment or other people, just focused on business insight!

Cons

Very low ethnic diversity, everyone kinda looks the same. No real unusual benefits or perks. Not a big "cool" factor to the workplace, at least in Stamford.

    Pros

    High quality people who generally put the customer first.
    Competitive pay.
    Good benefits.
    Generally well regarded company by others in IT and other industries.
    Very good environment for those who perform.

    Cons

    Internal Sales process seems to have become overly complex with a too much emphasis on reporting and managing upward.
    Pricing flexibility and giving the customer exactly whet they need/want was often at odds with what Gartner management packaged and prices. Too much "one size fits all" strategy for pricing and service delivery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flexibility in the service delivery options will make life better for both your field reps and, most importantly, your customers. This may have been addressed some since I left; not sure.

    I learned a wealth of knowledge related to understanding CIO's, and how to derive information.

    Pros

    New, aesthetically pleasing office with gymnasium on-site. You work with driven, like minded individuals which is always a plus.

    Cons

    Shallow politics. It reminds me of high school from this standpoint. Favorites are played, not by merit for advancement in too many situations that could damage the company. The Fort Myers office median age is around 24.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on performance, not relationships.
