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

    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.

    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.

    Cons

    Huge problem developing people. Academy is a process that is 2+ months long. After going through many interviews, flying around the country, and going through 2+ months of training's, you still might not be a good fit. A lot of people move just for this job, and they do not even know if they will make it through training and a lot of people don't. Management is a problem, be careful of the bait and switch. In...

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. If you get them through all of the interviews, the academy, and up on the floor make sure you are putting leaders in place to develop and retain talent. Make strategies and plans open to the whole sales floor, you can tell some leaders are trying to spit out the words that they heard in a meeting to the team, but it becomes a game of telephone. Have the VP's hold team meetings, at least...

    Pros

    Great company, with great benefits, brilliant coworkers, flexible work, cool travel opportunities, achievements are well recognized.

    Cons

    Excessive focus on unclear metrics. Some leaders are disconnected from what the analysts actually do. While work life balance is available, you need to grab it. It will not be served up on a silver platter.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the metrics, already
