Good All Around Company

Management was great and went out of their way to help support the team; hours and flexibility were great; benefits were amazing. Worked both remote and in the office.

Pros

Benefits, great team members, remote working options.

Cons

Office space limited.

Work life balance place with learning opportunities

Entered Gartners as a new graduates from NYU, I started my career as a full-stack developer, I learnt a lot from coding to business knowledge. Glad that I had this chance to contribute to such a great company.

Its fine

Gartner suffers a bit from valuing politics and popularity at the same level as delivered value. Understanding that these two can be linked (the ability to successfully navigate politics can directly influence your ability to get the job done) - the emphasis is clearly on political side. Gartner does provide a good benefits package, as far as larger corporations go you can do worse.

Going so bad so far.

I joined this company due to the reviews it has of work life balance. But exactly opposite. Even have to work on weekend every months. Managers have higher then higher expectations. Very depressing environment they have created. No appreciation even after working odd hours and weekends.

Pros

Policies are good here.

Cons

Managers are not good. They sometime don't even let you go for breaks. No work life balance.

Nice place to work, but difficult to advance

Gartner has good benefits and competitive compensation, but it can be difficult to advance, especially in IT. Some managers are very good and get teams to work together, and others are less good. I had one of each, and recent reorganizations have made things a bit worse in terms of management.

Pros

Competitive Compensation, Low Stress

Cons

Hard to Advance, Not Focused on IT

Dull and Difficult when working without a team in tech

I enjoyed working at this company and really wish I could have stayed, but circumstances out of my control amounted in my resignation. I believe the poor management and strenuous relationship between the IT Department and the Business Department produced unfair working environments through improper allocation of funds and resources. At first, I was underused or not working at all - no one gave me anything to do. Then I was given the work of a team of 8. I completed that work primarily on my own, but eventually a second team member was assigned to work with me and we finished the gigantic redesign and redevelopment nearly a year after the business team needed it - then they planned to redo it again. I resigned shortly after.

Pros

Transportation from train station, healthcare, 401k

Cons

Management, expensive lunches, expensive area to live
