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

Pros

My manager explained that she hired competent employees and they knew what needed to be done.

The departments did not work together to get new clients.

Advice to Management

Have the departments work together and not against one another and the client experience would be much better.

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Brand recognition with CxO decision makers
    - Market leader
    - Analysts, consultants and executive partners are very sales friendly
    - Bonuses and accelerators are attractive but can dry up after a couple good years
    - Great events

    Cons

    - hiring too many AEs, contracting the territories
    - risk is high and rewards can be low after a good year
    - many territories are very mature and are loaded up with products, so growth is nearly impossible
    - the money is not as good as it was a few years ago, top performers earning less and maybe 1/3 are making their quotas
    - Lots of churn and high turnover of sales in major accounts
    - Career opportunities are very limited for work-at-home remote areas
    - Some very absurd rules of engagement on territories, seat locations, sales credits, etc.
    - Too many AEs working multi-location accounts with different agendas

    Advice to Management

    - Reduce the shared account complexity with so many AEs calling into same organization in different locations
    - Rules of engagement are bad for customers
    - Why are you hiring more and more reps and contracting territories when most aren't making the numbers?
