Account Executve (Former Employee) –  United States15 August 2017
Gartner has a high performing culture where everyone is expected to given one's best. There is a fair amount of training and coaching sessions. In sales you can come up through the ranks if your numbers are good on a consistent basis. The executive team knows what they are doing. Most of them have been with the company for a while and understands what is happening on the ground. Gartner has made many acquisitions over the last few years and as such has had to absorb quite a few changes. The company does a fantastic job in change management. Changes are well thought out and tested before it is implemented on a large scale.
Pros
A lot of flexibility around work hours as long as you perform.
Cons
No annual sales kick off.

SMB Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL28 July 2017
Gartner is a place to learn and grow. The culture is fantastic and you are surrounded by like-minded individuals who have a drive to succeed - they will also take a step back to ensure you get the support you need in order to be successful.

Terrible Management; Lack of Communication
Analytics and Insight Specialist; People Analytics (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CT10 July 2017
I can only speak for the HR Department, but there's an excessive amount of optics driven, professional relationship favoritism. Expectations are not clearly set. Do not express interest in anything beyond what you're tasked to do or risk termination. There's this pervasive culture of "If you have outside interests than you're not fully committed to the job." You're given a plethora of menial tasks that you're of course expected to act as though performing them is the equivalent of a ride on the Kingda Ka roller coasters, or risk being labeled as "not a team player." Don't be surprised if you're hired for a job that is actually not the one for which you've interviewed.

Great on the surface
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL14 June 2017
If you are a new graduate or young professional looking to get great sales and professional development training, Gartner is a great place to star. However, what Gartner possesses in great training it lacks in professional development and management. This job will stress you out, and you will be expected to perform or they will replace you as their turnover rate is extremely high. Do not be fooled by the pool tables & lax culture...you will never enjoy those amenities without your manager sitting you down discussing how you are not presenting a good corporate image. Also upward growth is very political and usually not until after 2 years. You will not find a more boring town then fort myers. Overall, would not recommend.
Pros
Pto, Work/life Balance, Great Training
Cons
Management, Quarter Closes, Fort Myers Location

Good product, great sales training
Senior Enterprise Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CT5 June 2017
Gartner has a good research product and a good sales training program. However lately many managers have left for larger IT companies, and a void is felt. Lots of pressure to meet quarterly numbers at times at the expense of long term deals and client relationships. Successful salespeople complain of ever increasing risk to their portfolios.

Cut throat environment with Driven people
Sales intern (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL24 May 2017
The job was very fast paced, stressful, and cut throat. Everyone there was driven to succeed and further their careers even further. Everyone around you made you work harder because no one wanted to be the one that fell behind. The hardest part was that it was an unpaid internship, that only paid in work experience. Overall learned a lot from the work environment.

Over-inflated status
Senior Executive Partner (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VA15 May 2017
Gartner is the second-worst company I have worked for in 30 years. The corporate culture is all about Sales, not clients. Sales managers have taken over key advising areas of the firm and are running operations like a used-car lot...the focus is on metrics that reflect Sales versus performance, and clients and employees are leaving in droves.
Pros
great compensation
Cons
cut-throat culture

Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL24 March 2017
It is a very hard sell for SMB. There is great support from upper management to continually work on your professional development. Hardest part of the job is selling premium products to SMB clients.

young place to work with a lot of turn over
CLIENT RELATIONS ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Midvale, UT21 March 2017
Good company. Bad management. Upper management was cocky and didn't want to listen to us 'lowly' employees. Didn't understand the job that they were asking us to do. No support for a sick employee.

Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Boston, MA1 June 2015
Gartner invests highly in its employees by putting you through an elaborate training program and aligning a mentor through your first 6 months territory live. There are unlimited resources to ensure your success - if you leverage them correctly. There are many opportunities for promotion for this that have proven themselves successful. Gartner promotes an exception "coaching" management style that is collaborative and foster's personal and professional improvement. Great work - life balance that is encouraged by upper management.
Pros
Great hours, benefits, Management, Pto, etc.
Cons
Highly Competitive (more of a pro)
