Gartner SMB Account Executive
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLDecember 12, 2016
For Fort Myers Office only:

Some of the most well-educated people I've worked with whom have little to no experience and it sometimes shows to their detriment. Technical expertise is lacking from the sellers, but the management team is exceptional and the people are fun to work with.

Overall the company is great to work for and well recognized within the IT industry.
Pros
Great sales training, great work culture
Cons
Below industry average salary, expected to stay late often

Great place
Review Analyst (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTNovember 22, 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 Learning Experience

Great cafeteria.

Great work/life balance
Invest (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTOctober 18, 2016
Gartner provides an excellent work life balance. If you are driven to move up you control your own destiny. Hard work is acknowledged.

Cool company culture
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTOctober 8, 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

great place to start your career
Corporate Recruiter (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLAugust 11, 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.

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.

The usual pains of a billion $ business

Great company but unsure of how to get to the next level
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTJuly 17, 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.

Good Starting Salaries, but a dog eat dog atmoshphere
Controller Group (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLJuly 7, 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.

Horrible place to work unless...
Director of Business Development (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLJune 7, 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.

Good 1st job
Inside Sales Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLMay 31, 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.

Looks great on paper
Client Partner (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLMay 12, 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.

Strategic Growth Advisor (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLMay 9, 2016
Gartner hires people slowly and promotes quickly putting less than best people into management. However, they have a great environment for people right out of college.
