Pros

Gartner has a great reputation and known as the leader in the space. Most analysts are very quick to help in sales efforts. Pay is good as long as you sell.

Cons

Clients can easily take advantage of sales. Packaging is confusing to clients and the price points are extremely high given the industry average.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

low-level sales management is completely inept, for the most part. the new sales reporting system is nothing but a micromanagement tool. Sales activity expectations by senior management on those who actually sell are completely unrealistic.

    Pros

    Great compensation, benefits, almost 3 weeks PTO, highly talented, intelligent, dedicates and professional employees. Leading brand in the market place.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, politics and favourtism, very high stress/pressure from management, old systems that need to be updated, HR team lacking professionalism, feedback may be taken but action is most commonly not made. Very "corporate" and brainwashing is expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the extremely high turnover rate. Conduct anyonymous surveys to understand the true feelings and satisfaction of your sales team; many are very unhappy but stick around due to economic pressures. Let the qualified professionals you hired do the job they are capable of without the unecessary high pressure from management.
