Account Manager, HTTP (Former Employee) –  Stains, London & travel to clients16 June 2014
I started work an hour early, and set myself up for the day.
There was a great two month training programme that all new starters attended. This included Value Selling and gaining experience from successful members of the company.
The culture is very focused towards Gartner, and the management created fun challenges and rewards throughout the sales quarters.
I worked selling into the UK market, which was very competitve due to there being two UK teams with a total of 22 people targeting the same prospects.
The hardest part of the job was the commute and long hours. however the benefits and team were great. I most enjoyed building the relationships and focusing on retention of my clients and ensuring they gained the highest value from their Garter experience.
Pros
Fantastic team, Great opportunities
Cons
Long Hours, Extremely long travel

Great company but less and less work life balance
Specialist (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CT20 February 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.

Minimal room for advancement
Production Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL16 December 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.

Gartner is a wonderful company to work for. There is a good work/life balance and the people are wonderful! My manager was wonderful. The team was great and super collaborative. The deadlines are tight but the work gets done.

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

Overall, the company is good to work for, great location and new buildings
Sr. Administrator (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL10 September 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

Good Entry Level Company - Poor Career Advancement
Research Content Specialist (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CT13 January 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.

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.

A great place to work
Client Partner (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FL28 January 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

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.

Solid Company
Director (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CT22 June 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

Smart Atmosphere, Great People and Product
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Irving, TX30 June 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

Work/life balance??
Administrative Assistant/Program Specialist (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CT10 April 2012
Gartner is a culture like no other. Management tends to vary depending on which area you work in. Co-workers are nice but standoffish. Working remotely is the norm there so people are not always in the office. The most enjoyable part of the job was the ability to work from home. The hardest, dealing with some of the management.
Pros
ability to work from home, great vacation time. salary decent
Cons
some management

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.

Great internship for Corporate Experience
ExP EP Content Ops Intern (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CT22 January 2016
Internships at Gartner helped develop and enhance both my skills in research and analysis in the corporate sphere. I spent time supporting the marketing department where I engaged creatively to develop campaigns to engage clients. I also was able to perform an analysis on the effectiveness of email blasts on clients.

In my second internship (Content Ops) I was responsible for a pilot that would be used to help Gartner internally to understand the needs of their CIO clients. I created a template for this pilot and then researched the executives to help the service delivery team meet their objectives.

I enjoyed working here because my internships allowed me to use my skills and gain more experience in a corporate setting. Management was supportive and co-workers were communicative and friendly.
