I worked at Gartner full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Highly visible and well regarded company
Great annual sales trips
Many terrific people work there

Cons

Talks a good game for work-life balance, but many Account Executive jobs require round the clock work
CEO makes a VERY healthy salary, squeezes sales people and resources beyond productivity limits
Superior pay is based on exceeding your number
Commissions are lower until you get closer to the goal, then they begin to approach target earnings. So, if you hit 80% of target, your pay will be more greatly impacted.
Incredibly bad CRM

Advice to Management

Account Executives and Executive Programs resources are pushed to their limits. Analysts are grumbling about how little time they have to actually research and write effectively. Sales force more than doubled, straining resources that were expected to just keep up and do more and more work.

    Pros

    Love being part of a growing organization. It provides lots of opportunities and new learning experiences. Coworkers tend to turn into friends and most people have significant tenure.

    Cons

    Upward mobility may be limited in remote office locations. Senior leadership is typically located at headquarters.

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A significant percentage of the employees have been at Gartner for decades, showing that the job and the company still provide a challenging, satisfying work environment. Compensation is good, excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Too much of a focus on metrics when it comes to performance reviews. Consulting organization seems to be always chasing the big boys, constantly reorganizing and shifting metrics to match what the competition is doing - whether or not it makes sense for Gartner.

    Advice to Management

    Enough with the change just for the sake of change. And if your organization is so complex that you have to send out multiple emails to explain who employees should be rating in an upward feedback survey, then perhaps that organization structure should be rethought.
