Great place
Review Analyst (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CT22 November 2016
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…

great place to start your career
Corporate Recruiter (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL11 August 2016
There is a chance for great camaraderie if you're in the right group. The company is respected in its field and looks great on paper. The team I was in was a well oiled machine until a new manager came in and changed everything, now they are just limping along and all looking to get out (or for the older ones, make it to retirement under the radar). Nice cafeteria. Train shuttle. Nice campus on the water.

The usual pains of a billion $ business

Great company but unsure of how to get to the next level
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CT17 July 2016
The company is great to work for. Some amazing caliber folks, some not. The work life balance if you have the right manager is great. Mobile work force but depending on your manager, can be micromanaged. Policies aren't set across the board and there's a lot of room for manager's discretion. I had a great manager for a number of years and then another one that I struggled with.

Cool company culture
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CT8 October 2016
Great waterside location. Bad traffic in Stamford, CT.

A bit hard to advance as they bring in talent from outside.

Very smart people everywhere, hard working, but short hours. At 5:30 everyone is gone except for a few who don't want to leave.
Pros
Cool company culture, laid back, smart people

Good Starting Salaries, but a dog eat dog atmoshphere
Controller Group (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL7 July 2016
This company has so much potential. The business units are good with the Great Managers, but are a horrible place to work if you have a bad Manager. Expected to take work home, they do not value Life/Work Balance.
Pros
Starting Salary, Bonus for Sales, A+ Benefits
Cons
No Life/Work Balance, great place if single and looking to earn a nest egg.

Good 1st job
Inside Sales Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL31 May 2016
Gartner is a fun company that is very youth driven. You will get to work with exciting technology companies and your opportunity for advancement can be realized rather quickly if you are close to the right people. That being said, several people who are not necessarily qualified to be in management get promoted. Having a good manager will make or break your career at Gartner. The only other major drawback is having to move to Fort Myers, Florida.

Horrible place to work unless...
Director of Business Development (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL7 June 2016
You are fresh out of college and have no idea of what professionalism looks like. The recruiters at this company are the best sales people. The career advancement opportunities are minimal at best and picked purely off of popularity and not performace. It is only an inside sales company, there are not any outside sales positions available in the SMB market.

One of the best sales environments
Sales at Gartner (Former Employee) –  Mumbai23 April 2016
Gartner is probably the best training institutes which imbibes strong sales behaviours and methodologies required for consultative selling .
The training and the competitive environment hones special skills in executives like consultative selling , executive presence and high level communication.

The perks offered are higher than industry standards and there is scope to earn high incentives as well.

Very transparent in terms of employee performance dashboard
Pros
Sales Training, Incentives, Flexible Working hours
Cons
Peer Pressure, Non Uniform Processes

Looks great on paper
Client Partner (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL12 May 2016
Gartner is one of those companies that people strive for, everyone seems to want to work there. However, they are not very employee friendly. I saw multiple friends get fired without warning and without reason, especially on the sales side. Very little room for growth or advancement if you want to do anything other than sales.

It's Not Too Bad for Job #1
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL7 March 2016
If you are looking to begin a career in sales or technology, go for it. Just know the environment can be a bit overwhelming if you are a loner or independently driven. They have a heavy "everyone in" collaborative work environment which is good for some not for all. Finally, Fort Myers is a city best suitable for my grandma to retire from teaching. Very slow town so be cautious.
