    Great company if you get in the right territory.

    Account Manager SMB (Former Employee) Fort Myers, FL

    ProsGreat training program and ongoing skills improvement opportunities. Awesome people to work with and lots of opportunity to make great money right away.

    ConsPoor territories don't allow level playing field. Recognition given by metrics only and if you do the right things and it doesn't work out, it's all your fault.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring poor candidates just because you are growing rapidly. Adjust responsibilities due to thinned out territories.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Account Manager SMB

    Accpunt Manager SMB (Current Employee) Fort Myers, FL

    ProsGood training available. Great corporate culture with opportunity for growth. Gartner is an amazing company which offers great pay and benefits. I'd recommend other areas besides SMB however.

    ConsManagement in SMB is boys club. Current Sales staff is young and inexperienced and the sales floor can have a bit of a frat house atmosphere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAct like adults...
