Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Decent Salary level, excellent compensations. Good career opportunities. Good training programs.

Cons

massive employees turnover in sales SMB. If you inherited a bad territory you are in troubles and there's no way to escalate it. They don't take in count countries with bad economy (same price list for all Euro Countries) and UK price list is actually 30% cheaper and US price list is 50% cheaper. So it's difficult to sell in some territories: such as France, Italy, Spain, Portugal.

Advice to Management

They should collect more feedback from the senior employees.
