Minimal room for advancement
Production Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLDecember 16, 2015
Minimal room for advancement. Must be an appraiser if you want to see a decent income. Management is very supportive and willing to help you get your license, but without it... you'll make more in retail.

Good Company to get your Start
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL / Atlanta, GAAugust 10, 2016
Great company to start your sales career, they have an amazing training program. This is not your traditional sales job, you will be required to stay up to date to the changes in IT and the industries you cover. You will notice the organization will provide you will a lot of training and resources to be successful in your role. If you're not able to get the flow within the 1st 90 days you will be re-trained and given up to a year to perform or at least have the right mindset.

The typical sales cycle last about 2 months if you're doing the right things, you have to be really consultative in selling a username and password. Aligning the problem your're trying to solve to the resources that Gartner provides it's clients.

The most enjoyable part of working at Gartner are the smart and responsbile people you work with, everyone seems to be excited to work there. Especially at the End of a Quarter and the EOY.

Great company, but a lot of growing pain like weak territories. you are strongly at the will of the accounts you're put into - mainly Healthcare and Financial Verticals make the most money at Gartner! so fight for that or a High Tech role! in SMB

Field Sales - everything is the same - you are at the will of the economy
Pros
Great Training, Perfect Culture in SMB - a little less steller in AMA and SAO
Cons
Upward movement ceiling - unless you have 10 + years in role.

Takes care of their employees
Executive Client Manager - Executive Programs (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLAugust 29, 2015
Gartner is a great place to work and it they know that if you take care of your employees they will work harder. The only issue is there can be too much focus on sales and too little focus on client satisfaction. This is not always the case but it is difficult to keep the proper balance.

Solid Company
Director (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTJune 22, 2015
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.
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

High Stress Environment
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLSeptember 28, 2015
For those right out of college this is a great experience. If you have work experience and a mind of your own it will not work out. You have to be a robot and just do what you are told without question.

Great place to Grow, then Go
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.

Great company but less and less work life balance
Specialist (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTFebruary 20, 2015
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.
Pros
typically good salaries and good benefits. gym on site in stamford.
Cons
not much work/life balance.

A great place to work
Client Partner (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLJanuary 28, 2015
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.
Pros
great benefits, room to advance, great culture
Cons
rigid work structure may not be best for all personality types

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.

Overall, the company is good to work for, great location and new buildings
Sr. Administrator (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLSeptember 10, 2014
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.
Pros
pto, benefits, co-workers
Cons
turnover

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.

Management leaves something to be desired
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLOctober 15, 2014
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.
Cons
management, favoritism, negativity

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.

Smart Atmosphere, Great People and Product
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXJune 30, 2014
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 clients open the door and know what you are selling. The Symposium is a great selling event.
Pros
great product, atmosphere and benefits
Cons
can be an unforgiving environment
