    Many Opportunities Across Business Lines

    Pros

    I've enjoyed working at Gartner for the abundance of opportunities to change roles across different businesses. There is a lot of mobility for those motivated to seek it. Work-life balance is also optimal with little to no travel for most roles (a pro for me...admittedly not for eveybody).

    Cons

    Can sometimes feel like a grind. Publishing deadlines are comparable to a hampster wheel and never end. It's rewarding but can be challenging to manage so many ongoing projects.

    Great place to start a career

    Pros

    Gartner is a great place to start your sales career. I would chose it again if I had to do it again. The amount you are micromanaged is heavily dependent on your manager - some are relaxed and let you work and others are the complete opposite. The work life balance is amazing. I feel my direct manager genuinely cares about me as a person.

    Cons

    They are pricing out middle market clients. With the business model, there are too many things out of your control. More so than other sales jobs. You are the service for your clients and have to show value for a product that is largely intangible ROI. You have to focus on service as an AE -sometimes so much that it can cannibalized your ability to grow accounts. Business development often hands off misaligned sales and then it becomes your responsibility to renew accounts that are doomed from the start. They pay external hires far more than they pay internal talent - this is a known problem which as a sales person is the largest con of them all.
