Pros

Ability to work with industry thought leaders, great management team, autonomy and sufficient direction to do what I do best, highly collaborative envirnoment, working with clients and industryc leaders, providing actionable advice and truly helping our customers. The opportunity for career growth is unbelievable, this truly can be a lifetime career choice (single employer). Ability to work in an intellectually challenging and learning and growth environment provides unparalled job satisfaction. Comraderie among employees and across business units is unmatched. Management truly cares about it's members and employees and subscribes to Gallop management practices vis a vis annual employee surveys. Best envirnoment I have ever worked in IT industry.

Cons

long hours and working weekends/holidays at times, but job satisfaction worth the investment.

Advice to Management

Provide stock options to all employees

    Pros

    Brand second to none in the industry. Opportunity to work literally with the "best and the brightest" in IT in the world.

    Cons

    Gartner Consulting still not sure what it wants to be when it grows up -- gets much less corporate attention than Research.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the Consulting requires a different business model than Research. Contribution margins can never be close between "product" (Research) and "services" (Consulting). Tighter integration of Consulting and Research would benefit the company overall.

  2. Gartner has high potential, but...

    Pros

    Family, work life balance is very much supported within Gartner. Flexibility of work time is also supported highly within the organization. Gartner provides excellent benefits. Gartner also provides a lot of opportunity to move within the organization and to other locations where a particular business operates from including overseas.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability by management and associates who should own tasks or projects. Middle management competence is quite low. Accountability usually lies on lower level associates which lowers morale and keeps people from being motivated to take risks and be innovative. Personal ambitions and agendas take precedence more often then not. Thats not to say that many companies are not like that but world class companies operate like teams and not against each other, which seems to be the case across many areas.

    Advice to Management

    Look at who is delivering and who is not. Put in place methods to force managers to be accountable to produce results. Pay in line with market and increase by 10% to retain top quaility people. If the company was able to get top quality people across areas that are filled with incompetence, the bottom line would increase significantly and it would actually increase morale, motivation levels along with increasing the level of work ethic and productivity.
