    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.

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

    Pros

    - Good friendly people
    - Company has a great reputation

    Cons

    - No matter how good you are at your job, it will not be noticed unless you are strong at political games, and suck up to the right people
    - being successful is as simple as writing an email at the end of the week to your boss, saying you turned up to work 5 days this week (forgetting the fact you didn't actually do anything)
    - Aggressive growth plan, and are big on recruitment yet have no real desire to manage and hold on to existing staff. Turnover is very high
    - they have a real mix of quality employees, and some of the worst i have ever encountered. You can easily coast by in this company, and will not be at risk. If you are bad at your job but suck up to the right people you will be protected
    - change is not that easy. Every decision is made by committee and their is no transparency
    - no coaching / training is offered to help advance your career. The job you are hired for is where they see you and where they want you to stay
    - becoming extremely metric driven across all business units. Although quality is discussed, it is down to the numbers game
    - Promotions are rare, and the managers in leadership positions are extremely weak and not strong enough to drive the business forward
    - very heavy focus on the Sales division, with other divisions completely ignored

    Advice to Management

    Gartner can offer so much, but you really need to take a step back and figure out what you currently have and what is working and who is not working. They have big plans to continually evolve, but the decisions are taken at management level who are so far removed from what is happening on the ground level. You need to overhaul what is happening on an individual basis, and start thinking of other parts of the business away from Sales.
