    Great place if you're in the right BU/department/role, ie - Sales or Analyst.

    Pros

    Very strong business model, virtually no competitors - none compare in scale/expertise/reputation.

    Cons

    Events - resource constraints; a continuous sense employees are easily replaced regardless of the contributions and personal sacrifices made; declining morale even in top performing teams because of tone set by leadership.

    Advice to Management

    World class businesses and strong growth are not sustainable without the proper level of resources to deliver AND innovate - regardless of a solid strategy in place. Committed professionals deserve respect and know when they are being paid lip service.

    Pros

    Clients are great, the best part of the job

    Cons

    better be part of the in-crowd, all your good work will be overlooked if not. Be prepared to be a "second class citizen" if not.

    Advice to Management

    Great that you're investing in sales, but how about the folks who actually have to deliver what you sell?

    Pros

    Stimulating, full of smart and engaged people. Most of my friends I met through my work here. Every day when I get up I look forward to going to work.

    Cons

    We work really hard. When you're engaged and feel like you're doing "good," it's not hard. This place is not for people who don't immerse themselves in their jobs. Not only will they not get the most out of their Gartner experience, they won't survive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep challenging us to think big. Keep demonstrating that senior management really lives the core values.

    Pros

    Collaboration and office environment are fantastic. The upper management take a personal interest in the entry level all the way up. The training is hard but well worth it.

    Cons

    Not a lot, great place to start a career.

    Pros

    Gartner employees are a fun and eclectic group of perpetual learners--they love a puzzle or problem to solve!

    Cons

    The different business units do not always get the same treatment. Research and Sales are the flagship consumer offerings, and often receive internal priority for new staff roll-outs, etc...

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the wealth of experience and expertise at your disposal within your company before looking to external sources--outside experts often pollute the great culture maintained within.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work with extremely smart and motivated individuals. Very hard working culture. Good meal and exercise facilities. Comfortable work environment with friendly colleagues.

    Cons

    Low salaries, especially when taking into account the high cost of living. There is a slow rate of advancement. Long hours are not required, but are expected.

    Advice to Management

    The need to sustain rapid growth needs to be balanced with retaining your most valuable talent. Proactively work to keep your experienced and productive team members to maintain positive culture.
