    Pros

    Gartner has great repuation in customer base for research

    Unless you are amalyst there is little respect for others. The sales management is some of the worst i have seen in my 25 years in IT. Total focus on signing up customers ans making sure they renew.

    I worked at Gartner full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing team & culture - consistent reflection and feedback provided by leadership for salespeople that want to excel within their role. Also, tight-nit team that consistently supported one another in every day activities. Useful and highly relevant Sales and Industry resources - unlocked as an employee (all of Gartner's research); meant understanding the extent of the client's industry and trajectory was an active part of the sales process. Emphasis on perfecting the sales process - without micromanaging, talk track soundbites, industry changes and insightful questions were constantly being shared throughout the team. Overall a great place to work at an Assosiate level, as time and effort is invested into highly transferrable skills and ownership of the full sales pipeline and accounts.

    Cons

    Could spend more time guiding/building material of front line sales people.

    I worked at Gartner full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Customers, Peers, Analysts were all fantastic. The delivery teams were great too... and we were all marching toward a customer outcome.

    Cons

    Management, Robots, Process... Cult... Bullying Culture. Promotion is only for the few who have friends in Management, and even then Managers are not chosen on the basis of whether they can manage and the one's I knew had little to no Management skills and certainly no support. Some Analysts were Diva's...

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

    Pros

    Gartner is full of incredibly smart people who are dedicated to delivering insight and value to clients. It's a highly collaborative culture across every area of the business and the business model means that delivering value to clients is the only way to grow the business. Fundamentally, Gartner helps organisation solve their biggest business problems - so you have an organisation of people whose drivers typically are around helping people to solve problems. Gartnter's focus on best practices and building capability is the same internally as it is externally - the expectation is continuous improvement and a continuous evolution of best practice and methodologies. The combination of the strategic focus of our work and the Gartner brand means that sales people spend the majority of their time with Executives and senior leaders which is a great place to be.

    Cons

    It is a highly pressured environment. Integrity and behaviours are critical but there is huge pressure on results. There is a large US org culture where when people are performance managed out, there is no communication or discussion. That can be quite challenging. Gartner is not good at part-time or planning for maternity but is slowly getting better and there is a large focus on this but it does not appear to be a priority for the CEO.
