I have been working at Gartner full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very generous vacation and semi- flexible work schedule.

Cons

Very 'who you know' or 'who you kiss up to' culture. No raises. Have earned less each year over the past 5 years. Health insurance went to crap after Obamacare was passed. No recognition unless you are buddies with management.

Advice to Management

Start seeing what your people do and give them recognition. Stop taking credit for work your reports do and start actually managing. Senior management has no clue and if you have an opinion or a suggestion just keep it to yourself or you will be labeled with an attitude.

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great support from management
    Administrative help in managing expenses, calendar, and call volumes
    Lots of travel, but flexibility
    working from home, or anywhere

    Cons

    If you work really hard you are often not rewarded for it.
    Too many talented people, makes it hard to be recognized. (both good and bad!)
    Long hours, but to be expected
    Calendar is booked way in advance, less flexible

    Advice to Management

    There is too much politics within management, favoritism, and mis-management of the events business generally.

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great atmosphere, great pay, great opportunities to move to management and beyond in a year or 2.

    Cons

    Although we get a lot of days off we are in the office on important holidays

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, I think we should be able to work remotely
