I have been working at Gartner full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Gartner has a world-wide reputation for having some of the top thinkers in various industries. Being a Gartner analyst give you a tremendous amount of influence. The company supports most analysts desire/need to work from home. And, overall, the people are great to work with.

Cons

Gartner is still attempting to determine what it wants to be when it grows up. The company is really trying to position for growth, and that is causing some growing pains in the culture.

Keeping up with the travel schedule can become very demanding.

    I worked at Gartner full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Awesome brand recognition, strong benefits, energetic corporate culture. Working at Gartner is a differentiator for growing your career, especially sales roles. You can take the experience and translate it to Sr Software, Hardware, Consulting sales roles that grant larger salaries and compensation packages.

    Cons

    Lower compensation compared to the market rates, especially for sales, top heavy management and middle management "special projects."

    Advice to Management

    Too many "sales advisor and overlay roles" -keep sales leadership limited to direct territories or direct territory management/roll up. The soft revenue and influential sales are not trackable nor accurate.

    "A good place to work but, too much bureaucracy"

    I worked at Gartner full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, some of the smartest people you'll ever be around. Most employees have flexible work opportunities.

    Cons

    Never worked somewhere where who you worked for is the most important thing. I'd meet employees for the first time and that would be the first question that I was asked. Too much red tape and overly cautious.

    Advice to Management

    You've got to loosen the reigns. Let the smart people be smart people. Stop hand holding every decision.
