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

Pros

In my experience they pay their people well and genuinely give poor performers a good opportunity to improve. They also have excellent benefits in both health and PTO.

Cons

If you're in sales you can't really take your full PTO. It's also corporate so you have to deal with TPS reports and the like. I didn't feel they had enough analysts when I was a sales rep. They seemed to run their primary delivery machine (the analysts) to death.

Advice to Management

Hire more analysts. Treat your analysts like gold and you will succeed. Understand the value that you have inside the company and work to find ways to promote people from within.

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

    Pros

    My experience at Gartner was memorable to say the least.. The client site I worked at was extremely stressful, though exhilarating enough to motivate me to jump up every morning at 4:15 to catch a 5:15 train arriving in my office by 6:30 and back home after dark.

    I found the Gartner folks I worked with themselves very collegial, extremely smart and engaging and cheerfully focused on reinforcing the corporate brand and being more effective than the competition.

    Cons

    Pressure to maximize billable hours appears to create unnecessary pressures on top of the daily client related dynamics. This pressure tends to suck up continuing educational time required to keep up in fast moving technological areas.

    Advice to Management

    Pressure to maximize billable hours creates stifles employee growth in fast moving technology sectors.

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company name, brand and reputation. No one offers our clients what we do. Our clients rely on us for their and their company success. Autonomy, sales oriented organization and I get to work with smart dynamic people internally and externally (my clients). I have a great boss and throughout my career at Gartner, I've had supportive managers.

    Cons

    No job is perfect and there are issues that just by nature that they are recurring can be bothersome.

    Advice to Management

    I think on the whole the management does a good job. The inititatives/projects are driven from the top and as it filters down to the sales level, the managers are smart enought to promote the initiatives while being cognizant of our particular situation
