    Pros

    - Lots of smart people
    - Flexible
    - Interesting work

    Cons

    Managers are a mixed bag. Some good, some micro-managers, and some completely hands off and unable to make decisions

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your employees careers and how to bring them to the next level.

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

    Pros

    World class services and advice for their clients
    Clients love Gartner - never had a bad client conversation
    You truly become a partner to your clients and the value is easy to measure
    Awesome global events
    Outstanding leadership at every turn
    Great culture - positive, supportive, fun and if you're not already an IT expert, you'll become one!
    Competitive compensation and benefits
    Freedom and flexibility - at least in the field
    New hire training is the best I've experienced

    Cons

    Information overload at times, especially for new hires or those not well seasoned in IT
    As a sales employee, the quarter to quarter focus is a challenge but that comes with the territory working for a public company.
    Internal processes can be cumbersome, but it becomes easier with time
    Advancement opportunities seemed limited due to long tenure in many areas of the company
    As a sales employee, the cycle can be long and very consultative. This was fine and expected, but if you enjoy a more transactional sales cycle, you won't be happy at Gartner.

    Advice to Management

    A truly outstanding company. The Gartner name is a brand that commands respect and attention by clients and prospects. Don't stray from what got you here.

    I have been working at Gartner full-time

    Pros

    Excellent work environment, competitive salary, great incentives and working with like minded, smart individuals.

    Cons

    Because of the fast pace environment, there's constant change but it's a positive thing if you enjoy keeping up with IT.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more consistent with team processes.

    Pros

    Gartner's willingness to encourage professionals with "no limit mindsets" makes for an amazing cultural experience. The ability to create your own destiny while working with some of the best overall talent in SWFL makes Gartner an amazing place to start, grow and finish your career.

    Cons

    Set salary for inside sales. (However, the commission and bonus structure more than makes up for it)

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, generous amount of PTO and well-respected brand

    Cons

    Not enough growth potential (career or financial), very micro-managed, they are hiring in less and less experienced Client Partners at lower salaries and so the level of professional experience in the Client Partner Group is declining.

    Advice to Management

    Teach your VPs how to act when at a company outing in public. For example, on one of our last outings a VP in the HTTP group LOST his cell phone and then accused people of stealing it. He made the amusement park we were at ask all of their employees if they stole his iPhone. It was mortifying to be associated with this type of behavior. Start checking the egos of your management and VPs.

    Pros

    salary is great, working with C-Level executives is challenging and rewarding

    Cons

    Sales cycles can take up to 6 months to a year. Must have patience!

    Pros

    As an Account Manager they prepare you for everything you need to do the job correctly. It's a great place to work, it isn't the easiest job but it's not impossible.

    Cons

    I can't think of any, we've had beach days, team outings, and fun all company meeting together. Again, the work is hard but they try their best to keep us happy.

    Pros

    My manager explained that she hired competent employees and they knew what needed to be done.

    Cons

    The departments did not work together to get new clients.

    Advice to Management

    Have the departments work together and not against one another and the client experience would be much better.
