A great place to work
Client Partner (Former Employee), Fort Myers, FLJanuary 28, 2015
Pros: great benefits, room to advance, great culture
Cons: rigid work structure may not be best for all personality types
Gartner is a great place to work for anyone looking to get started in the professional business world. Due to rapid growth there is oppotunity to advance for top performers. A rigid, metric driven structure makes things a bit "grindy" and may not be compatable with all personality types. Culture is king and young sales minded applicants will enjoy the work hard, play hard atmosphere.

Comfortable place to be busy
HTML Designer (Former Employee), Stamford, CTJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: people get dismissed without warnings.
I had a pleasure to be contractor at Gartner for 13 months. They immediately made me feel at home. A sense of belonging is a nicest feeling one can have.

Good Entry Level Company - Poor Career Advancement
Research Content Specialist (Current Employee), Stamford, CTJanuary 13, 2015
Gartner is growing and its hard to argue they don't provide a useful/much needed service to enterprises across the world. However, the RCS position is a dead-end essentially. One quickly realizes after a few months how there is essentially zero career development in the immediate department, management is just happy "keeping the lights on", and legacy employees bring the rest of the department down. Avoid RES if possible. Otherwise Gartner is a great company. Love the service it provides and benefits are generous.

A "one mindset company
Strategic Account Manager (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAJanuary 10, 2015
Drink the cool-aide or this will be the worst fit for you. Gartner is the least flat company you could ever imagine. There are literally like 8-10 levels between the field and the CEO. Each manager has to create his or her "catch phrase" (Game on) and team name. If you are a follower or a sheep, check out Gartner.

Not bad if it is a fit for you
Account Manager (Current Employee), Fort Myers, FLDecember 23, 2014
Hit or miss on if it will work out for you. Two month academy training is intense and if you don't graduate, you don't get offered the job. Once on sales floor, get used to lots of busy work and really long sales cycles. Most people only close 2-3 new clients per year. Leaves a lot hanging in the balance and can be stressful.

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 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.

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. 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."

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 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.
