Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Market footprint, interesting engagements and clients

Cons

High turnover, high and multiple personal quotas which if missed will result in termination regardless of prior contributions or tenure. Highly political, virtually no collaboration or sharing of IP as it is an "every man for himself" atmosphere.

Advice to Management

Either position the consulting practice as a long term asset with strong growth potential and make the corresponding investment in the employees and collaboration efforts or sell the franchise. In consulting the only assets are the people, and they will not stay in an exploitive environment.

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

    Pros

    There are many intelligent individuals across the company divisions. The work can be intellectually challenging and also very rewarding. Most managers have their direct reports' success as an imperative.

    Cons

    There is a certain level of political gamesmanship at the middle management levels that is to be expected, but this can be frustrating to the front lines. Internal collaboration is an area that perpetually needs improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees your trust fully and most will thrive. Stifle them with inconsistent administrative policies and you are setting them on a journey on the road to failure.
