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

Pros

Sales professionals are given an annual quota and asked to hit it. Yes, there are forecasts and quarterly expectations. If you tune out the noise, and provide honest feedback to your manager, you have a ton of freedom.

Ability to make consistent income.

Cons

Although there is no "cap" on commission, it is very difficult to make huge money as territories won't allow it. Tremendous growth has caused high attrition rates and clients notice.

Advice to Management

In a perfect world, take the company private... the best thing we could do for our clients would be to stop trying to grow so fast so that we can serve them better.
