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

Pros

Industry leader in IT Research with great offerings
Very smart employees
Great customers
Great place if you want a steady job

Cons

Policies override common sense or logic...very process and policy driven
Not a place to work to make a lot of money especially if you are a top-sales performer
Does not reward year over year success...just keeps increasing quota until you burnout

Advice to Management

Think strategically about your top revenue generating sales performers and build a comp plan that will keep them motivated and committed to staying. Turn over has a lasting affect in the eyes of the client.

    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
