    Pros

    Vacation - if you get to use it
    Backup research material at finger tips
    Vendor Neutral
    Good benefits package

    Cons

    No company stock options
    Have to justify (and keep billing) when training, attending industry conferences
    Smooth sailing when all is well, but expect rocky road and little communication until the hammer is dropped
    Rewards the sales-oriented

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth - Gartner is a public company - recognition and improve on success by offering stock awards to employees
    A process does not always a balanced system make (be prepared to use mitigation skils as necessary)

    Pros

    Intelligent people, great clients, beyond that there's not much more to say

    Cons

    Micromanager who manages through fear and intimidation, best categorized as passive aggressive, very political, untrustworthy. Worst manager ever whom senior management will not address. Tends to throw sales people and staff under the bus, yet smiles to their faces. I don't trust her to watch my dog.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to unload your EXP RVPs

    Pros

    Ability to work with industry thought leaders, great management team, autonomy and sufficient direction to do what I do best, highly collaborative envirnoment, working with clients and industryc leaders, providing actionable advice and truly helping our customers. The opportunity for career growth is unbelievable, this truly can be a lifetime career choice (single employer). Ability to work in an intellectually challenging and learning and growth environment provides unparalled job satisfaction. Comraderie among employees and across business units is unmatched. Management truly cares about it's members and employees and subscribes to Gallop management practices vis a vis annual employee surveys. Best envirnoment I have ever worked in IT industry.

    Cons

    long hours and working weekends/holidays at times, but job satisfaction worth the investment.

    Advice to Management

    Provide stock options to all employees
