Pros

Great work-life balance, benefits, compensation, culture and opportunities. I work in the Gartner Digital Markets Business unit within Gartner and I must say its been a rewarding experience here! By far the best company I have ever worked for. Working at Gartner feels like you're making a positive impact in the business processes of our clients. Its a very exciting place to work.

Cons

None that I can think of.

Pros

Garner invests a lot in new employees and expects a lot in return. For example, everyone is expected to make 100% of their goal. In management's words "That's the job." You're brought in to do more than the job. When an account does not renew, a meeting with multiple layers is called...fun times. The good side is that the benefits are great and comp is great.

Cons

You'll work hard. Period. Lots of pressure, as this is a sales driven organization (emphasis on the drive). I don't know that this is a con necessarily, but be aware this is no cake walk. Many successful reps have made personal sacrifices of which clients are unaware. So be nice to your reps.

Advice to Management

Thanks for the ramp-up. I learned a lot. Great job on the analyst/research side! It's the part of the organization I enjoyed the most.

Pros

Tons of flexibility and great work life balance Decent benefits like charity match

Cons

They literally could not care less about their employees despite telling us they do at every single town hall and team meeting. Upper management is extremely misleading, and lower down team managers aren't given enough information or resources to do anything for their reports despite wanting to. Because of this, career progression is essentially impossible - it is very unclear what you need to do to progress even if you excel in performance reviews. Upper management also does essentially everything they can to be opaque about what is actually going on within the organization, and instead only reports the positives and that everything is fine. Compensation is decent, but would not say its competitive compared to similar roles at other companies.

Advice to Management

Actually care about your people! I have met some of the smartest people here and most of them have left because of reasons I stated above. Don't treat your people just as numbers, and try to be transparent.

Pros

Growth-oriented company with excellent products/services and outstanding people, who are focused on delivering tangible value to clients and industry. Well-developed and consistently implemented strategy. Fair compensation, solid benefits, good culture. Great company to 'grow' a career from early and mid-levels.

Cons

Becoming very operationally and process-focused to support scaled, consistent growth - and that creates some inflexibility for client service delivery and bureaucracy for employees - a tradeoff for consistent execution, but can be frustrating as overhead and process increase significantly. Team/Leadership Executives below senior level are really process/program managers/supervisors with limited ability to bring own expertise to their teams. Limited opportunities for new roles for senior or tenured staff.

Advice to Management

Leadership's no-limits mentality contributes to high-end, very optimistic stretch-oriented performance goals that are/can be tight to delivery. Reward is very high P/E on stock, but significant price variability for shareholders. Market has high expectations, and we generally deliver very well, but when we're close, we are punished by the market. It feels like we are never doing 'enough'

Fair compensation, solid benefits, good culture.
