    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Excellent place to start or build on your career if you're looking for experience or exposure to a wide range of businesses. Great internal resources for career growth.

    Cons

    There was a mantra of "the mission before the metric" but that saying has been completely hollow for the past 6 months. Metric squeezes are consistent and 10+ hour work days are normal to keep in line. The greatest criticism is Gartner does not practice what it preaches. Even taking research to management to suggest better ways of working or thinking is slapped down as the metric comes first, not the client. The... lack of work life balance hurts. Flagging it with leadership is dismissed quickly. Talking upstream doesn't work. National R U Ok day passed the other day and too many people, myself included are not Ok. You're a number, not a person.

    Advice to Management

    Hold a voice of the employee survey, check in on the morale of your employees and take action that isn't a punishment.

    I have been working at Gartner full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good stable job. Fair amount of flexibility.

    Cons

    Some cultural and policy elements are still in the dark ages, While the company is making some updates, its only the bare minimum to prevent anything from hurting the bottom line. There's no appetite among senior to lead from the front.

    I have been working at Gartner full-time

    Pros

    High salary Smart driven people Fast paced and high performance culture

    Cons

    Treated as a number - no real focus on development which has led to high turnover rates Office culture is lacking and no effort to improve from leadership. All about hitting your targets Sales driven organisation - if you don't get along with sales you won't last long

    Advice to Management

    Work on improving the office culture - this will decrease turnover Whilst sales drive the front-line revenue growth it is a team effort, don't treat other areas of the business as second class citizens and be open minded to constructive feedback
