Great place to work but the salary is not great for cost of living

Leadership Partner (V.P., HR Strategy Consultant) (Former Employee) –  Ormond Beach, FLJuly 9, 2018
One's experience at Gartner truly depends on one's manager. While the performance review process is a 360-degree one, there are some managers there that have no business directing the activities of employees. Other managers are superb. I
Pros
Remote Work, Good Benefits
Cons
Some positions require excessive travel

Great place to work if you can find a fit. Management is reluctant to allow telecommuting for back office employees. Nice people to work with and great benefits - especially PTO.
Pros
Pto
Cons
Don't work in the Back Office - underpaid and over worked

Office Worker (Former Employee) –  EarthJuly 5, 2018
Forced exercise. This is a forced exercise. I'm not interested in reviewing the company at the moment. It's not that I'm adverse to sharing my thoughts, just not right now.

Senior Software Advisor (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 26, 2018
There was a lot of learning in the beginning and then it just felt like they were turning the place into a sweatshop. The management does not really care too much about what you are doing rather than how much money you make.

Marketing and Events Coordinator (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJune 26, 2018
Gartner is a good place to work but they are known for underpaying their employees. The workplace culture used to be very flexible, with work at home options, but it is now going through a change and is much more strict.
Pros
Good place to work
Cons
under payed

Overall a great place to work
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLJune 21, 2018
Very high pressure environment as they are publicly traded. Great training on their methodologies, and decent territory splits for those new to the company. The tools they use for sales professionals are lacking in several areas, although they state they'd invest in the tools to enable more results.

Sales and the value clients get from every interaction are of the utmost importance here. They invest a lot in their employees as they want them to grow with the company.

Business Development Manager (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAJune 13, 2018
Gartner is a great place wherever you are in your career. I was originally part of CEB when we were acquired by Gartner earlier in 2017, but the two organizations are very similar - everyone's nice, smart, and driven. Plus, there are plenty of routes to go once you work here, whether it's up in a current department or laterally into another part of the business.

Great Company
Human Resources (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLJune 11, 2018
Gartner is worth relocating for- all the effort you'll put into moving, training, mastering your role, etc will bring you so much personal growth. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.
My advice is to go for it. If it's not a long-term fit for what you want to do/where you want to be, you can make a change later. There are a lot of great people who work here, and Fort Myers really grows on you.
Pros
Gartner brand, benefits, industry
Cons
work-life balance

A great place to work but lacks communication
Senior Research Content Specialist (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CTMay 23, 2018
Everyone you will ever meet will say that they love Gartner, because it's true. Gartner provides an unlimited amount of support and perks to their employees. However, I wish that communication from the top down was more clear. In certain departments, it is hard to know what is really going on in the minds of our managers. Some times I wonder if they even know. Decisions are made without explanation and no alternatives at times.

Identity Access Management - Manager (Current Employee) –  Trumbull, CTMay 8, 2018
Gartner, Has positioned me with management skills that will be useful with any future opportunities,
managing a Global Team and time management , ensuring that all members globally are kept engaged and informed in all day to day process and procedures.

During recent acquisitions, there was an flux and overwhelming workload, balancing new members into Gartner standards and incorporating their current standards to develop a cohesive and mutual work environment.
Pros
great work environment, friendly, and considerate to anniversary, birthdays, a dn special occassions
Cons
Hr, too many meetings

No ping pong here, no games, just bad Christmas sweater parties.
Contract Recruitment Specialist (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLMay 7, 2018
This is very much a cookie cutter place to work. I you are over 40 you will not fit in. The managers are very young and inexperienced. The benefits and the building are about all the place has going for it.
Pros
Nice building, decent pay and benefits.
Cons
Very much a 25 year old person company. The meetings are rampant, the culture is almost cult like.

Pros
