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

    Pros

    Truly believed in services offered, uncapped pay, benefits, global opportunity, strong training program, generous time off, good career ladder options

    Cons

    The Inside sales regions and from what I hear, most regions have turned from a genuine family feel to a very cut-throat turn and burn environment. The company has aggressive growth goals and it's changing the culture of the organization from when I started.
