I worked at Gartner full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

I worked as a Consultant with Gartner for over seven years and it was an overall positive experience. The people are amazing - literally the best and brightest in most cases. Very professional, fun, intellectually-stimulating environment.

I couldn't say enough good things about the culture at Gartner!

Cons

Occassionally there were some hiccups with resource management - mainly in the sense of booking jobs that have one person traveling to 3+ cities around the country per week.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. I would encourage management to continue to bring on junior employees so they have the opportunity (as I did) to learn from and shadow more senior expert-level colleagues.

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

    Pros

    I've worked for some of the other global consulting firms, and I can confidently say that by far, this is the best. Gartner is changing things around when it comes to leadership. I have heard many comments saying that this is a rookie and immature consulting firm, which are comments that are unprecedented by facts. Gartner is a smaller firm and relatively newer, I agree. But, the proportion of smart people at this firm is far more than any other firm I have been at. There is a growing awareness of taking this firm to the next level, and I wholeheartedly think that we have the right people in place to take us there. Try Gartner for consulting and then try another 'run of the mill' consulting firm, and you will know the difference when you interact with our consultants.

    Great hours, and flexibility. This job teaches you that you better have other things outside of work that define you. If you don't and work is your life, you need to switch firms and go somewhere else that will work you to the bone!

    Bonus and salary are also satisfactory.

    Cons

    Too easy on people. We need to be more aggressive and competitive when it comes to finding new business, and keeping the right people in the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Continue making the changes that you are making. I think our consulting practice has great potential, with the right people in leadership positions. Performance over tenure should be recognized. With those right facets in mind, I think Gartner consulting will go places!

    "Gartner is a challenging product to sell-- sales force has minimal opportunity b/c of territory being limited."

    I worked at Gartner full-time

    Pros

    Good training. Nice benefits package.

    Cons

    Rough on employees. Demanding job. Not very fun. People are treated as numbers, not individuals. Tough product to sell. Tons of growth, starting to level-off.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better.
