Great place to learn and make a difference for your clients. But, management struggles to motivate.

Pros

Flexible schedule (if working remotely) and you make a significant impact to the clients that you work with. Great to work with and learn from the Gartner analyst team. Also, provide great training to equip you with the knowledge to approach CXO's. Also, well respected brand which is great for your resume.

Cons

High growth company means that sales territories are shrinking, and with it earnings opportunity. Mid level management does not motivate and pushes a transactional model on what should be a strategic sales model. There seems to be a mismatch between manager goals and sales compensation. CRM is outdated which leads to duplication of work.

Advice to Management

Make sure you offer your top performers the same opportunity and earnings today, that you did in the past. Do not promote the best reps, promote the best leaders who will inspire and motivate.

    Pros

    They do give a lot of vacation time and offer a work at home option in most departments. Pretty solid company.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement, the raises are terrible and the health insurance is awful.

    Pros

    Uncapped earning potential, world travel, exciting atmosphere.

    Cons

    Hard to move up internally, most high level managers look outside of the company for outside sales

    Advice to Management

    Move people around every 2/3 years based on personal performance. This way you'll keep your top talent eager to learn/move to the next level
