Hard to get in to, lots of benefits, bad management. Lots of difficult targets, they don't make it easy for you to make new business, you have to give away your contacts and get a limited territory plan.
Excellent pay with very limited job security. Its a trade-off "Pay vs. Everything else". Management hires/fires on a whim. Workplace culture is strictly based on department worked in and can vary from brutal to friendly. This is not a place for the faint of heart.
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Canada – 17 April 2017
I have been working at Gartner for 6.5 years in both customer service and field sales. The comps are great, the pay is good (although lower than most technology sales roles), and the benefits are great. Winner Circle is very achievable and the high performers are treated like gold. Management is still a work in progress and has been a pain point for Gartner for a few years. The culture is great and the people you are surrounded with are usually amazing.
Great company to work for...work life balance is good, but the travel piece can be a bear. If you want the opportunity to visit lots of different places, this is the job for you. Good opportunities for growth.
Very good job inyerviews i have had always got on witb everybody also

SMB saled (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – 19 March 2017
If you are well liked and placed on a verticalized team you will do great. If not, you will have your work cut out for you. They mostly hire people from fraternities and sororities so the culture is as such. Be ready for theme weeks and outside of work gatherings that are not obligatory but you might be seen as not be a part of the team if you don't go to those events. Management is very spiteful so watch your back. They are not afraid to stab you. Management will clearly identify favorites and potentially promote people for that reason alone and really immaturely.
Room Monitor (Former Employee) – Cape Town, Western Cape – 5 January 2017
It was a big opportunity to work at the Gartner Symposium ITexpo 2015 event in cape town. I have learned how to efficiently communicate with people. The most enjoyable part of the job was that after finishing all my duties, I was able to sit in, in conference rooms and listen to IT trends in the workplace.
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – 12 December 2016
For Fort Myers Office only:
Some of the most well-educated people I've worked with whom have little to no experience and it sometimes shows to their detriment. Technical expertise is lacking from the sellers, but the management team is exceptional and the people are fun to work with.
Overall the company is great to work for and well recognized within the IT industry.
Great sales training, great work culture
Below industry average salary, expected to stay late often
The culture is relaxed and friendly, lots of flexibility, some people come in really early and leave early, some come in late and leave later. This div. is run by the EVP of Marketing and she has created a working environment based on the belief that we will get our work done without being controlled or lorded over. In the end it makes for happier employees who achieve big results, accomplishing more than some of the…
