Used to be a great place to work, not anymore
Research Content Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – October 16, 2018
Gartner was once a great place to work, they used to really care about their employees. Many years ago (before 2016) they used to treat their employees with respect and value.
Things have taken a turn for the worst since organizational changes on both the Research and the Sales side.
Ask anyone on the inside and they care less and less about their employees and more about cost-cutting measures and cheap replaceable labor.
Gone are the days of good managers, coaching, mentorship, and helping their teams grow and develop from within.
After hiring Sorority girls for managers who only hire and promote their friends it's become a "cool kids club" where you are given raises and promotions NOT based on your performance or merit, but on how much of a "YES MAN" you are and how much you brown-nose your manager.
Managers have even been hired from the outside with NO knowledge of the business/industry and NO real experience or management capabilities.
The CEO is great, unfortunately middle (junior and senior) managers are ruining this company.
This is particularly notable in the Fort Myers office, sadly.
Gartner used to be a great place to work, but not anymore.
Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere, or you'll end up regretting it like so many others.
Poor management, mismanagement, poor treatment of employees
