Account Manager (Current Employee), Fort Myers, FLJuly 20, 2015
A great place to start your career. The training is there and they give you a lot of responsibility off that bat. The challenge is what's next... very few options in terms of what comes after this role.

Solid Company
Director (Current Employee), Stamford, CTJune 22, 2015
Pros: Vacation and health benefits
Cons: Frown on working from home, but there is no more room in the Stamford office and there is no plan to find more building space
As with most places, if you have a good manager you will go far. There are several sub cultures to navigate, all depends upon the department. Overall leadership is solid and strong. Sales orientated culture, most successful leaders came from sales. Good people, so normally it is a good day as everyone makes it fun.

Enjoyable but very slow
Sales (Current Employee), Fort Myers, FLMay 23, 2015
Pros: Work/life balance, upper management, perks, office
Cons: Mid-management
The work life balance is fantastic and they do a great job of reinforcing this. You'll enjoy who you work with and not feel as though your in an office dialing all day. Great learning experience for younger sales professionals, however if you have 3+ years under your belt go somewhere else. You'll get more money and have more impact.

Mid-management is average at best, with few managers being excellent. Many treat this as a "baby-sitting" job and lack true leadership/coaching. In some cases they may tell you what you are doing wrong, but fail to give a specific solution. One level above that (VPs) is stronger and why the company is still going in the right direction. You won't be closing deals on a daily/weekly basis as sales cycles take very long in most (but not all) cases. Keeping the confidence and not getting burnt out is difficult during those dry spells.

Overall, I would highly recommend this to someone who is just out of college or looking to learn sales/get their foot in the door. Other than that, go elsewhere if you have more experience/sales skills.

Account Executive (Former Employee), Fort Myers, FLMay 6, 2015
At one point in this company you were thought of as an individual, and treated like a member of a start up, but now you're just another replaceable member of corporate America.

Great company but less and less work life balance
Specialist (Current Employee), Stamford, CTFebruary 20, 2015
Pros: typically good salaries and good benefits. gym on site in stamford.
Cons: not much work/life balance.
Typical day is fast pace, non stop emails and you're sitting at your desk all day.

Lots of opportunity to learn about technology and business.

Management can vary from group to group, definitely changing for the worse, not the better.

Co-workers for the most part are great.

Hardest part of the job is the expectation that you're on 24/7. There's less life work balance now then there used to be years ago.

Most enjoyable part of the job is having the opportunity to learn new things and being surrounded by extremely bright individuals.

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.

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.
