All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

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

Pros

Smart research staff, good learning opportunity if you are interested in IT, many resources available to help accomplish work tasks, good place to be IF you are lucky and get a good manager (rare), a good territory and good comp.

Cons

Run from the supply chain organization. It's literally the last place you want to be at Gartner. Lots of backstabbing in sales with young and inexperienced or bad sales managers at all levels. Shady sales organization in many parts of the company. They do not care about your quality of life and you will be pressured to work LONG hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The CEO has trimmed back on benefits so that even the health plan is terrible now. No equity unless you are C level basically. What good is a stock doing well if your employees only get it through the ESPP but can't afford to contribute to it?

    Pros

    Great co-workers, good benefits / time off. You work at the number one company in the world for IT Research.

    Cons

    Working out of the satellite office doesn't allow for much growth withing the company. Upper management hired from the east coast office without giving local employees a chance to move up.

    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 CRM is outdated which leads to duplication of work.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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
