Pros

Gartner offers a variety of opportunities for motivated employees. Although it has turned away from remote working in some departments (Customer Service), others such as Sales and Research support remote working if you have the right manager. Gartner is a successful, growing company under the leadership of Eugene Hall. While there were expected growing pains during his early years, he has turned the company into one that balances the needs of employees, customers and shareholders. HR is supportive of feedback.

Cons

Customer Service group went through some rocky transitions, however it may have stabilized given the technological improvements that were beginning to be implemented when I left. Sales members can be arrogant at times, though this seems to be consistent with the profession.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Annual employee survey seems to be useless but may have improved since I left. It was rare that feedback was used to improve morale.

    Great organization for sales professionals, not an environment to develop domain expertise.

    Pros

    Gartner is all about the sales organization. The company offers a good salary with good rewards for overachievement. Gene Hall, CEO, wants to double the size of the sales organization so there is definitely opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    As the organization is growing rapidly, the strategy is all about how to make sales people more effective. There isn't an equal focus on adding analysts, consultants, program leaders or back office support. Sales executives are not expected to gain domain knowledge over time, just become better sales people who sell more services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are many sales managers that take a different approach to sales management. Make it more interesting for account executives to move into management. Provide training to sales professionals that goes beyond just better sales techniques.
