    Pros

    Always at the forefront of technology. Get to meet a lot of great people throughout the industry. Great benefits and compensation. Surrounded by some of the most experienced IT professionals in the world. Outstanding opportunities to get and provide feedback throughout the industry. Well respected company.

    Cons

    Its a large company and changes are not made quickly. There is a lot of politics involved throughout the company. Very little advancement opportunities as many employees have been at the company for over a decade.

    Pros

    Great brand, globally recognized company. Cultural experience really depends on the office...I'm sure it's great in some locations and not so great in others. If you are not in Stamford, however, you're out of the loop.

    Cons

    High pressure/high quota and results driven sales organization which does not allow for use of personal style. Extremely regimented with sales territories becoming very small due to high hire rate on a global scale. Cultural experience really depends on the office...I'm sure it's great in some locations and not so great in others. If you are not in Stamford, however, you're out of the loop.

    Advice to Management

    To senior sales management I would say rely less on internal personal friendships/relationships to determine whom you place in Area Manager & RVP roles and more on tenure & success at company. Internal, personal/friendships are not always the best choice based on experience with managing seasoned sales reps.

  5. Gartner Account Management Intern

    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

    I worked at Gartner as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    very positive and inclusive culture. The internship really provides insight into what an account manager does. Interns have a real opportunity to help the business. Individuals are always willing to help.

    Cons

    The internship involved a lot of cold calling. This IS part of the job however, and it helped build up good business acumen. Also its in Ft. Myers.

    Pros

    - Lots of smart people - Flexible - Interesting work

    Cons

    Managers are a mixed bag. Some good, some micro-managers, and some completely hands off and unable to make decisions

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your employees careers and how to bring them to the next level.

    Pros

    World class services and advice for their clients Clients love Gartner - never had a bad client conversation You truly become a partner to your clients and the value is easy to measure Awesome global events Outstanding leadership at every turn Great culture - positive, supportive, fun and if you're not already an IT expert, you'll become one! Competitive compensation and benefits Freedom and flexibility - at least in the field New hire training is the best I've experienced

    Cons

    Information overload at times, especially for new hires or those not well seasoned in IT As a sales employee, the quarter to quarter focus is a challenge but that comes with the territory working for a public company. Internal processes can be cumbersome, but it becomes easier with time Advancement opportunities seemed limited due to long tenure in many areas of the company As a sales employee, the cycle can be long and very consultative. This was fine and expected, but if you enjoy a more transactional sales cycle, you won't be happy at Gartner.

    Advice to Management

    A truly outstanding company. The Gartner name is a brand that commands respect and attention by clients and prospects. Don't stray from what got you here.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Gartner fosters development of it's employees very well.

    Cons

    Very competitive environment at the analyst level. Knowledge and coverage-area hording are rampant. Collaboration can be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Reward collaboration - too many individuals are rewarded solely for their individual contributions.

    Pros

    The employees and the role was virtual.

    Cons

    Not sure there is enough space to share my thoughts. But a few notable points are be ware, they are quick to fire you and quick to move on. They really have underestimated the competition and their rate cards for services are totally out of whack. Management is disengaged and not supportive. They have a marketing team that fill you full of lies and constantly recruiting. They have ruined my career.

    Advice to Management

    None as they dont listen anyways, you are only an individual contributor in their eyes.
