    Pros

    Gartner is a fantastic environment for anyone with a no limits mindset..For those in Sales they offer an excellent "value based" sales training course. The culture is excellent with super collaboration where everyone wants you to succeed. From day one you are set up with the tools to be successful and can take ownership of your career by continued development.

    Cons

    Extremely sales focused with high growth targets, be prepared to work hard. This also represents great opportunity.

    I worked at Gartner full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You will be involved in conversations at a senior level and have get great understanding of challenges facing IT departments

    Cons

    Gartner try to sell internally that they are a trust based sales organisation but towards the end of each quarter management acts like you are a conservatories sales organisation. They should hire and develop managers better. The RVP for Ireland has little management expereince and can be heard regularly shouting at her area managers who in turn apply the wrong type of pressure onto their account executives. The sales...

    Advice to Management

    Focus on long term strategy and not to just sell on short term. And make it clear what people are earning as there is a huge gap in what some people are getting paid versus others.

    Pros

    A great place to work for ambitious high achievers who take ownership of their development and career. Superior training sets new hires up for success. Excellent development opportunities throughout career. Very collaborative environment. Uncapped OTE rewards high performers.

    Cons

    There are periods of high intensity and high demand on time which does not suit everybody.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring top talent - it benefits everyone as new talent inspires all.

    Pros

    Positive and encouraging work culture. Good work life balance. Decent content for work.

    I have been working at Gartner full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Incredibly fair comp plan for sales, especially for Account Management group where the book of business you get handed largely defines your initial success. Comp plan has very few disincentives unlike most organizations where it can feel like comp plan is specifically designed to screw you over. If you ask and press there's a ton of opportunities and options for advancement. Company has standardized workstations...

    Cons

    Poor communication from the top down on approaches and metrics. Things change rapidly and we're agile which is great but it almost never makes it down to the floor unless you know people or constantly bug your VP/HR. Yet again, nobody knows how mid-year raises are working this year or what they're based on despite being a month into q3 A lot of new reps have difficulty grasping selling an intangible product and there's...

    Advice to Management

    Read your own research on flexible work arrangements/technology approaches etc. Absolutely no reason we shouldn't have an actual CRM. Establish clear lines of communication about focus and approaches, and when thinking at a higher level shifts, tell the people executing that strategy.

    I worked at Gartner for less than a year

    Pros

    The culture is great, everyone makes you feel at home. Amazing training program and several resources to ensure your success.

    Cons

    The intern program could have been more clear about what the metrics that we need to complete will be in the hiring process, rather than finding out what we are doing the first day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
