I have been working at Gartner

Pros

Gartner is one of the best places I have ever worked for. The executive team is extremely bright and knows how to motivate people. If you have an opportunity to come work here I would highly recommend moving forward.

Cons

If I had to find a con, I guess it would be trying to figure out how to utilize all the resources internally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

An in-depth analysis of territories. As expected, quotas increase without getting anything added to the territories. Would love to see if there is a way to revamp the territories on the west coast.

    I worked at Gartner

    Pros

    decent work/life balance if you have the right manager
    great cafeteria and gym

    Cons

    very political
    pay is below industry standards
    hard to advance (unless you know the right people)
    don't even consider working in Gartner HR (NA) unless you're absolutely desparate for a job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the folks who are actually doing the work
    reward good behavior not just bottom line results

    No opinion of CEO

    Cool place, not like it used to be

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities

    I have been working at Gartner

    Pros

    Pays well, smart people, cool job, good location, good benefits, takes some time to adjust to the insular culture, but otherwise pretty fun

    Cons

    Can be very political at times, seem to be living in the past. A lot of the old analysts have huge egos and can be real jurks to new people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best of luck trying to turn this boat. This place peaked in 1996, and has been sinking ever since. All the good people have left.
