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

Pros

You do learn some skills..

Cons

If you are young and a temp you are treated like crap. They ask you to work for them and write their name all over it and you never get recognized. They also don't include you in meetings.. and you are the least person whom they tell if any news around the dept. or the company overall.

Advice to Management

Please be fair with the Contractors. They do the same work as the other employees there and do try their best to become a permanent employee.

    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.
