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

Pros

great to work for, will keep you challenged, very busy, need to put up or shut up

Cons

the review process is de-motivating, as the people the senior management like are given the world, with not the work product to show for it; and the others flounder with large work loads and fair to mddle ratings

Advice to ManagementAdvice

drop the review process - everyone else is wisening up - it will be OK

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

    Pros

    Gartner treats its employees better than any company I have ever worked for. The training, time off and added perks are unmatched. If you take advantage of what's available it can be a great springboard for your career. Looks awesome on a resume.

    Cons

    The compensation plan is convoluted and there are a lot of things that you do not have control over. It is a no excuses environment, any failures fall on your shoulders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent in the recruiting process about what the job entails and give more realistic salary expectations

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sales professionals are given an annual quota and asked to hit it. Yes, there are forecasts and quarterly expectations. If you tune out the noise, and provide honest feedback to your manager, you have a ton of freedom.

    Ability to make consistent income.

    Cons

    Although there is no "cap" on commission, it is very difficult to make huge money as territories won't allow it. Tremendous growth has caused high attrition rates and clients notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In a perfect world, take the company private... the best thing we could do for our clients would be to stop trying to grow so fast so that we can serve them better.
