    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Gartner full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Professional development. Insight into corporate environments at organizations across business domains. Can meet with some of the most respected people in the world for technology. Consultative. Challenging but very possible. Collaborative culture. Competitive but everyone is rooting for each-other, "i want to beat you by 1 pt" type of competitive.

    Cons

    Very process oriented. Can be exhausting at times but the best practices are there. No need to re-invent wheel to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    More communication across different business units with feedback would benefit the org

    I have been working at Gartner full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I'm a new Account Executive with a military background. Gartner has provided training, resources, and opportunity that other organizations I've dealt with have failed to follow through on. This is the most exceptional organization I have been a part of.

    Cons

    I hope they finish construction on the parking lot soon.

    I worked at Gartner for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Modern culture, flexible work environment, great facilities and amenities at work (gym, chefs, pool tables, etc) You will get a lot of education and exposure with working with enterprise size clients and C-Level executives. A lot of perks come with the company, great vacations, team days, fun events, and fun quarter closes. If you like technology and big business, this is a great opportunity. The company...

    Cons

    Huge problem developing people. Academy is a process that is 2+ months long. After going through many interviews, flying around the country, and going through 2+ months of training's, you still might not be a good fit. A lot of people move just for this job, and they do not even know if they will make it through training and a lot of people don't. Management is a problem, be careful of the bait and switch. In...

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. If you get them through all of the interviews, the academy, and up on the floor make sure you are putting leaders in place to develop and retain talent. Make strategies and plans open to the whole sales floor, you can tell some leaders are trying to spit out the words that they heard in a meeting to the team, but it becomes a game of telephone. Have the VP's hold team meetings, at least...

    I have been working at Gartner full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Work hard, play hard culture! Each day flys by, and I truly have fun growing with the company. Lots of PTO and great benefits to enjoy your time off.

    Cons

    Limited remotes roles out of sales and advisory. For example, if you want to move "home" wherever that is - they don't offer any flexibility.

    Amazing work/life balance, great benefits, simple day to day tasks.

    Internal promotions are tough, and they prefer external hires over promoting within.
