    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...

    Gartner provides a great opportunity and sets up new hires for success.

    Senior Account Executive (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsSales Management - Positive, Encouraging, Supportive and Enthusiastic. Sales is a central organization in the business and as a result the Sales organization is a high priority in the business.

    Training - After spending 17+ years in sales and participating in multiple training programs, I found the new hire training at Gartner to be one of the best I have ever been involved in. The training is well organized, impactful and I feel has prepared me for success at Gartner. The quality of the training program can be directly attributed to the strength of the training team. Instructors are recent Account Executives from the field and are dedicated to delivering the content (not part time).

    People - I have found my peers to be intelligent. Furthermore, interacting with the Research Analysts provides the opportunity to engage with individuals that are truly experts in their field.

    ConsThe only real downside that I anticipate so far is that there are too many opportunities and not enough time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the bar high for hiring.
