Good people

Research Director (Former Employee)
Brisbane

I worked at Gartner

ProsGreat people to work with. Everywhere you go there are smart people. Good place to get a detailed understanding of IT and connect with a lot of companies. In research Gartner will challenge you in all types of ways. Interpersonal skills and analysis skills.

it should be better

Vice President (Current Employee)

I have been working at Gartner

Prosthe brand name is good, but the action doesnt come through. people get value most of the time if utilised properly.

Consdont look after their people. no interest in long term interests, and developing people, and roles. it is a lot of shoot from the hip.its sales at any cost, and dog eats dog within the groups

Advice to Senior Managementlisten. look . learn. respect your people instead of sniping out loud about people peers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Sales

Sales (Former Employee)

I worked at Gartner full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat benefits and incentives. There is a certain amount of luck in the territory you're assigned (as with any sales position) but the broad range of product offerings and support do allow you to capitalize on some great rewards. Everyone is accessible & easy to worth with. Plus, the training offered is excellent.

ConsSometimes your successes can be overlooked & promotions can be either be one extreme- very easy or a monumental challenge.

Advice to Senior ManagementA true testament to Gartner is the tenure of so many employees- great feedback from within.

Great Company with Great People

Executive Advisor (Former Employee)

I worked at Gartner full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGartner employs a lot of smart people which make it an exceptional environment to learn and grow. Lot of opportunities to drive high-level interaction with senior managers in IT organizations.

ConsPoor HR management (especially outside of the USA).
After 10 years, the CEO's vision is still the same although the business environment has radically changed. Will Gartner be able to become a real digital company?

Advice to Senior Management- Improve HR management outside of the US.
- Apply to Gartner an analysis of your business model through the lens of the Nexus of Forces.

Internship at Gartner

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Gartner as an intern for less than a year

ProsGood experience and great training. Everyone is very helpful and provide great input. Compensation is great for full-time hires. The ability to work from home when needed is also a plus.

ConsIt's hard to get a full time position as an intern. They expect and require more from you since you have been working with them.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake it easier for interns and temps to apply.

Awesome Brand, Excellent training, and Best Place to have a lasting career in Sales!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Gartner full-time

ProsExcellent reputation in IT and in Supply Chain. Brand is continuing to grow, and the training is excellent. Extremely collaborative work environment, where succeeding is a team sport! Best place to learn the tools needed for a long career in sales. Gartner places high value on their relationships with their clients, and ensuring they get what they need from Gartner as a partner.

ConsNot really a con so much as a warning: Gartner is about collaboration. This is not a selfie organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to build the workforce and provide training every few years so that learning continues to be a lifetime partnership with Gartner. Gartner has the best training organization I've ever witnessed!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
