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

Pros

Great culture of ownership. You are empowered to achieve results and have opportunity to connect your personal values, drivers and goals with what the role and Gartner environment can offer to achieve. Motivation and recognition is key to leadership and management style. Ultimate focus on personal development, individual skill/knowledge or group training. Career progression is open to many options, moves to management or different business division. Performance is recognized and rewarded based on meritocratic standards

Cons

I really enjoy working here. Perhaps one of the possible downsides is becoming too much used to Gartner way of thinking as there is always a new project, a new idea to work on and time can fly by fast! :) It is good to reflect every now and then to get a perspective from a different angle.

    Pros

    Management give analysts lots of freedom, backup and support. Self-starters and entrepreneur types will do will in this environment. Company has really good benefits

    Cons

    Working independently (at home) means its tougher to know whats really going on internally. Not enough coordination across analysts groups, some analysts are heavily favored and always get the best assignments so politics plays an important role

    Pros

    Good to build your network with board members of the clients.

    benefits are good (pension, company car, etc)

    Cons

    Gartner is a sales organisation nothing more nothing less, if you love pure sales of what ever and don't have in-depth IT experience Gartner is the place to get a job. If you are into IT don't join into a sales role.

    Payment is average, variable payment is terrible from a steady income perspective.

    as sales you are being thought all the tricks to close the sale quickly as a Gartner sales rep you will never become a trusted advisor to your clients (this is exclusively for the analysts and executive partners). You just need to squeeze the client harder and harder for additional business.

    Gartner is a company you either love or hate, nothing in between.

    The external perception of Gartner is totally different than how the company works internally.

    Advice to Management

    best sales guys get promotions, but remember an excellent sales person is often not a great manager.

    Gartner wants to grow their sales force 20% year over year, with 10% of the employees leaving each year Gartner needs to hire 30% new sales staff every year. with this large amount of new people you will net get the best of the best anymore.
