verey intensely marketing-driven environment
Vice President, Client Partner (Former Employee), Stamford CTOctober 23, 2014
Although very performance-driven, has devolved into urgent need to maximize billable hours, rather than focusing on quality of service delivery and competiveness of offerings.

Management leaves something to be desired
Account Executive (Current Employee), Fort Myers, FLOctober 15, 2014
Cons: management, favoritism, negativity
The management in the SMB channel is terrible. People are promoted into the role after one successful sell as an AE. They have no business being a manager and no aspirations to help others. The culture has turned into a negative fueled, manipulative, lying environment. The amount of turnover is unreal. New hires are coming in by the truckloads and territories – more... are shrinking with absolutely no adjustments to quotas or expectations. Favoritism runs rampant throughout the office. Some employees breeze through with less than average results while others go above and beyond expectations with no advancement in their career. If you can be hired on as a field account rep, that may be okay, but as for the Ft Myers channel, I would think twice. – less

Great Place to Work if in Right Position
Executive Client Manager (Former Employee), Fort Myers, FLSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: get to interact with world business leaders, travel, lots of training ans education from top 3rd party companies such as box of crayons, etc.
Cons: hard work, sales based, renewals are a big part of your performance
I worked in Gartner's Executive Programs (EXP) supporting our Tier1 members, C-Level executives. Helped them make day to day business and technology decisions to match the companies KPIs.

I learned that C-Level executives have to be both business and digital savvy, not "technology" but digital savvy to be a good leader.

Management in EXP is exceptional. – more... The best part is they trust the employee to do the right thing. No one looking over your shoulder. However most people in EXP are already polished professionals and some are even former Gartner members which makes it easy.

Hardest part of the job for EXP is to engage the un-engaged members. Meaning sales has sold them a membership and it is up to EXP to manage that relationship. Sometimes the membership level does not match the persons ability in the company.

Most enjoyable part of the job is when you get the affirmation from the executive like "you just made my day, this is the information I needed most, this will help us a lot." – less

Overall, the company is good to work for, great location and new buildings
Sr. Administrator (Current Employee), Fort Myers, FLSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: pto, benefits, co-workers
Cons: turnover
Busy place, great community involvement, and amazing professional administrators who are not appreciated as they should be.
Some Management leads through fear, and insecurity, resulting in lower associate retention and productivity.
The associates are very reliable and dedicated to the work they do. They are great team players and are always willing – more... to help one another achieve their goals.

The hardest part of the job is trying to accommodate over 100 associates.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction of making many people's job more effective and more efficient through my skills. – less

Pros: great product, atmosphere and benefits
Cons: can be an unforgiving environment
Overall a pretty great company to work for. You go to work with very intelligent people who are energized,like to brainstorm and know how to have fun at the end of the day. This is a sales driven company and the most respected in the industry. You can make very good money in the right vertical. Gartner will give you tons of training and most of your – more... clients open the door and know what you are selling. The Symposium is a great selling event. – less

Professional and Focused
Account Manager, HTTP (Former Employee), Stains, London & travel to clientsJune 16, 2014
Pros: fantastic team, great opportunities
Cons: long hours, extremely long travel
I started work an hour early, and set myself up for the day.
There was a great two month training programme that all new starters attended. This included Value Selling and gaining experience from successful members of the company.
The culture is very focused towards Gartner, and the management created fun challenges and rewards throughout the sales – more... quarters.
I worked selling into the UK market, which was very competitve due to there being two UK teams with a total of 22 people targeting the same prospects.
The hardest part of the job was the commute and long hours. however the benefits and team were great. I most enjoyed building the relationships and focusing on retention of my clients and ensuring they gained the highest value from their Garter experience. – less

Good if you have a good manager, otherwise too heavy on metrics
Director, Business Development (Current Employee), BostonJune 4, 2014
Gartner is light on benefits. It can be rewarding if you have a good manager but they have too many managers and you will be micro managed unless you get lucky and have a competent and secure leader. Kind of a cult mentality and a lot of nepotism.

Outstanding opportunity to learn and grow. You get out what you put into it.
Research Content Specialist (Current Employee), Stamford, CTJanuary 3, 2014
Pros: all the information in the world at your finger tips.
Typical day involves analyzing client inquiries to assist in their initiatives. Provide relevant research and connect them with the appropriate research analysts to further discuss both technical aspects and methodologies. Being preview to research, analyst insight and client concerns has expanded my insight into application strategies such as CRM and – more...
