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.

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

    Pros

    An incredibly stimulating environment that challenges your intellect as well as your creativity. Great colleagues and the freedom to follow your interests.

    Cons

    The job requires strong self motivation and a desire to succeed. No one is going to do your job for you and no one is going to stop you from working way too much. You are in charge.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in touch with new employees that work from home. Make sure the isolation is not creating barriers to their success.
