Find a good manager
Director (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTNovember 12, 2017
Affer leaving the company, my direct manager has since retired, and his boss died, so the landscape may have changed into a more employee supportive and less antagonistic environment.

New manager is an awful human being
Undisclosed (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTOctober 27, 2017
A new department head has just been brought in and I've never had a more patronizing, narcissistic, disrespectful manager before. If you enjoy being talked down to and treated like you are absolutely useless, then proceed.
Pros
Job, work and co-workers are great
Cons
Manager is an awful human being

Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTOctober 6, 2017
When you work at Gartner, you represent the leading IT research company in the world. This is a huge competitive advantage. Gartner can be a great company to work for but a lot depends on getting a good territory with a low comp plan otherwise life can be very stressful. Great perks but excessive travel. Overall I would recommend Gartner.
Pros

Cons
Excessive Travel

Cons
Short breaks

Great Company with ability to Grow within
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTSeptember 27, 2017
Gartner has a niche in the market to provide the best research to companies around the globe.

Travel was required a lot which is fun if you're young and single but tougher with a family.

Inside sales (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLSeptember 19, 2017
Great company that will open a lot of doors for you. This is NOT and entry level job, this is a career. I would only have great things to say about Gartner if they had a little better management put in place. All and all, great place to work.

I have to write up a review in order to continue on Indeed.com. I haven't worked at Gartner in over a decade, so this won't give you any information at all.

Good Company - Tough Sale
SMB Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLAugust 30, 2017
Great company but it is a hard product to sell. Training is amazing. You have to really get behind the product to be successful. Selling an intangible service like Gartner is very tough but the company carries such a strong and respected name which is very helpful. Culture is amazing. Poor choice in making Fort Myers their sales office.
Pros
Time off
Cons
Territories are shrinking

Stressful environment
Associate Client Partner, Strategic Accounts (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLAugust 27, 2017
The CSO is a very stressful call center. The management is disorganized and are solely focused on metrics. Regardless of the fact that your customers are finding value from their services, if you don't check the box in Gartner's eyes your clients aren't happy.

A great place to learn and grow
Managing Vice President (Current Employee) –  ConnecticutAugust 15, 2017
Gartner is great for those who want to learn, grow and be challenged. It is a fast paced, growing company with solid leadership and a strong business model. If you have a no-limits mindset, high integrity, and thrive in a fast paced fun environment Gartner is a great place to work.

Moving Up the process scale
Senior Account Executive / Area manager (Former Employee) –  Conshohocken, PAAugust 7, 2017
Gartner is now a nearly 40 year old company and many of the elements that once made Gartner a unique and exciting place to work are missing. Gartner's business model and value proposition has not changed much and the market for Gartner services is mature. Gartner's approach to these challenges has been to increase standardization of sales process and to rigorously enforce that process. Gartner is a great place to develop C-Level relationships and access to senior executives is greater that most any other technology firm.
Pros
Access to Seiior Executives; Great Brand Recognition
Cons
Process, Process, Process
