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

Pros

good reputation in IT industry, nice managers and open culture, the associates are all friendly.

Cons

high quota and high pressure, don't do any localization, so it's difficult to sell in non-english country

Advice to Management

management level is fine, but their ideas on product and strategy changed very quickly

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

    Pros

    - Gartner is the largest and most widely recognised research company, this does have its perks

    - Market trends show Gartner as stable, the result is that although the "job for life" no longer exists, job security is good

    Cons

    - Analysts are treated like rockstars. They travel first class and enjoy the perks of traditional C-level employees, In reality they are not true subject matter experts but IT journalists

    - Expense policies are ridiculous - there are employees eating out in very expensive restaurants whilst at events (not even entertaining customers) whilst pretty much all other IT companies are attempting to save money

    - Review process is a joke - employees are given status as "upcoming stars" but then are treated badly by middle and upper management. I know of examples where people have been asked to apply for a more senior role and then the person who asked them to apply is the person to deny the application!

    - Recruitment process is also a joke - HR advertise jobs which either don't exist or they state the candidate is not a good fit despite numerous colleagues providing referrals and also confirming in writing prior that the candidate is a good fit!

    - Non US employees do not benefit from the same luxuries as US employees

    - Not un-typical to other US based companies, Gartner has more job titles than you can shake a stick at. Hardly any of them make sense and I wouldn't be surprised if even the cleaner has a Senior Director or VP title!

    Advice to Management

    - Sort out your fees, policies and do not discriminate against non US employees. If your customers get wind of you allowing employees to travel first class and enjoy C-level dinners at their expense, you may find that this impacts your 'relationship' with them

    - Recruit fairly globally
