Pros

great brand to have on the CV and great training in the academy.

Cons

salary is ridiculously low, zero work life balance and leaders in SMB are a joke - so much politics and death by spreadsheet. VPs and managers wouldnt last a day in the real world. R(ott) in Peace. Can't wait to resign.

Pros

The pay is good (assuming you are are not a college grad and come into Gartner from the outside) if you begin at entry level and get promoted they pay you WAY less than outside hires. Luckily I am an outside hire. The training is above par and it has made me a better sales person. For better or worse when I finally get out of this place I will know I made a good amount of money and took sales skills with me. Gartner made me better at my job period.

Cons

Commission structure is confusing They don't practice what they preach They don't have a CRM! seriously what is going on here? If you don't "drink the koolaid" and continue to be an individual they won't like you as much and quite honestly will be threatened by you. Do not question authority or ask questions. They breed "yes mans" these college grads come to Gartner and are groomed to be gartners ideal employee... it's weird... but seriously it's very very strange and eerie They play favorites. Are you a yes man? Are you a brown noser? Are you 200% over quota already? Do you not question authority? Are drinking Gartner's Koolaid. GREAT! Here please take all the inbound leads and easy wins so that we can continue to make you successful and forget anyone else on the team. Ever heard of a round robin? Success is completely partly dependent on luck and mostly dependent on your vertical, territory, and if your managers and leaders like you. Don't be surprised if the most "successful" bds on your team eat up all your managers time. They are SO SUCCESSFUL that they can't even run a meeting alone. They are handheld through the entire sales process... which also includes spoonfed ready to buy inbound leads. If you think a company whos literal job is to gather research and advise other companies on how to make their organization better has it together... THINK AGAIN. It's all a lie. Shout out to the recruiters for being liar liar pants on fires.

Advice to Management

Practice what you preach Top sales people don't always equate to great or even good managers. (that sounds familiar... OH WAIT you literally wrote about that in a white paper from 2019) weird. GET A CRM how can we do our job and correctly manage our time if all we have is a spread sheet and no legitimate working CRM ..please tell us. Work on culture and transparency. You hired capable and smart employees. (I think) quoting a previous well written reviewer " there's a hush-hush and keep your head down culture that's breeding a truly eerie amount of "yes men" that is slowly driving authentic people insane (or out the door)."

The pay is good (assuming you are are not a college grad and come into Gartner from the outside) if you begin at entry level and get promoted they pay you WAY less than outside hires.

Pros

Good benefits and decent pay

Cons

Not a woman friendly company. Leadership and senior mgrs are majority male. Male managers openly berate female colleagues. I have on two occasions heard a male manager openly discredit two different female counterparts. As long as the males bring in the $$$ senior mgt looks the other way. Women are sent emails about their dress and what they should wear with no explanation or evidence that they were ever inappropriately dressed.

Advice to Management

You have a systemic mysogany issue and it is known.

Good benefits and decent pay
