I have been working at Gartner

Pros

There are definite opportunities for growth and career development. The benefits are great, particularly the amount of time off (7 weeks paid-time-off after 5 years). it's a job that definitely allows for a good work/life balance, while still providing opportunities to make a good living.

Cons

The work can get mundane and tedious at times, and it isn;t very fulfilling. while starting salaries are decent and promotion raises are very fair, yearly increases and bonuses are dismal. employee morale is lacking in certain departments. communication from upper management is sometimes lacking. team work among various departments is also lacking at times -- sort of every department for itself.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management not always receptive to new ideas. More recognition and feedback would be nice.

    Pros

    Florida location; not much more locally. Best pay in the area.

    Cons

    Bottom 10% get cut, even those who have delivered outstanding performance for years. No recognition of prior performance during evaluations; hey, people can have a tough year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weigh contributions of employees over a few year period against current performance. Also, it is critical to understand you are hiring from a broad spectrum of people, some with experience and some fresh out of college. Draw a balance in the way you treat them. For many experienced people, business 101 is not only not needed, but not welcomed. Don't set standards based on the most immature employee; instead provide flexible guidelines.

    Pros

    Interesting job, One can work independently. European management is better. Gartner's clout in the market is great.

    Cons

    Pay sucks, too many e-mails, over-matrixed management. Management has completely lost touch with the del-vered product -- the analysts. My income increases only 4% a year. Before Gartner it was 10+%. The only way to make money is to be a road warrier. Having a research manager half way around the globe is a pain in the butt. Gartner is now to big and addicted to vendor revenue. Buying Dataquest was a mistake. I have new boss every year, sometimes more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go Private.It was a good company before it went public.
