Good first job, not much room for growth

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Gartner is a large company with a strong track record of success. They didn’t cut many jobs during covid, and in general are fairly well run. The people are very nice and smart. Where the company lacks is compensation and promotion at lower levels. There is a lot of middle management and the promotion timeline is long. Additionally, gartner pays less than consulting despite being pretty similar to it.

Pros

Work life, people

Cons

Pay, promotion

Youth-Driven Culture

Fun culture that can at times be a distraction for some. If you work hard and put in the effort, you will make a good income through a generous commission structure.

Pros

Strong Employee Supprt

Cons

No CRM

Great benefits

Great benefits and flexibility working from home; not too much travel compared to other consultant work Good about elevating from within but still follow the traditional path of every 2 years = promotion instead of based rewarding high performers

Great Benefits, Low Advancement

Gartner is geared for those workers coming out of college. Post that without an Ivy League education your advancement opportunities will be small. If you have consulting background from the top five companies you are guaranteed upper level advancement.

Pros

Benefits, Paid time Off

Cons

Opportunity for Advancement

Great work life balance (but that's role dependent)

Work life balance was great. Pay was great. Benefits were good. Overall culture was good, the company is diverse. There is lots to like. Unfortunately, the management was stuck in "group think" mode. Free thinking and constructive criticism wasn't always appreciated and/or welcomed. Some of the promotions weren't fair (happened without interviewing), while others weren't allowed to even apply for certain jobs.

Just okay

Pay was good, management and integration is a bit all over the place. Workplace/ culture encourages all the benefits, management of this is very select and not consistent.

Very dishonest and cut throat culture.

Management is dishonest and slippery. They talk about people and take their ideas to use as their own. Very unprofessional atmosphere and poor quality of management . Don’t waste your time on this loser company.

Pros

Slight benefits

Cons

Everything! The managers are dishonest and slippery

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.

Poor management

Gartner has been through an enormous amount of change in the last year and it has taken a toll on the culture. Company meetings are routinely started with apologies from leadership about how poorly transitions have happened and how difficult things are. In the last year, 50% of our workforce has quit and moved on. This is primarily due to a lack of investment in existing talent, poor base compensation, and blatant lies from leadership about the company's development and strategy initiatives. I used to love this company because I was surrounded by intelligent, driven, and team-oriented individuals. I learned something new every day. Leadership needs to take a hard look at all the amazing talent they've lost and route cause what has disrupted the culture so negatively.

Pros

Gym/Fitness benefit of $250/year, work/life balance, PTO allotment

Cons

401 k matching, segregated management, few development opportunities, no team events

Great benefits and, overall, a good place to work

I only worked for Gartner for a short time after an acquisition. From what I could tell the company was a pretty good place to work. They later sold us off so I was only there for a short time.

Used to be a great place to work, not anymore

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.

Pros

Gym on site

Cons

Poor management, mismanagement, poor treatment of employees

If you want to work in a glorified call center with micromanaging leadership in a cult-like culture, apply there.

No matter what you try to do to achieve your set results, 95% of the time outcomes are completely outside of your control. You have sales metrics, even though you work with delivery. They set you up for failure from the start and if you work at the client services organization you are up for a really frustrating ride. They will make you feel like you won the lottery during training but as soon as the honeymoon phase is over (less than 6mo if you are a smart person) you will understand what you really signed up for. They take pride on promoting from within and don’t really apply anything they advise their clients to do. Chances are that your managers and VPs have less than half of your educational experience and have no idea of what goes on outside of their bubble and their limited experience working at Gartner for their whole life. They manage numbers, not people and do not take any criticism or suggestions lightly. They have a top-bottom approach to change and no advancements opportunities outside of management within the call center. If you want to move horizontally, you will have a hard time. If you work with real IT or in sales, your experience may be different but at client services it will be like this. There is an insane amount of administrative work and useless processes that could be easily eliminated or automated. Employees are all unhappy, turnover is so big that HR is struggling to keep up. By the way, HR is horrible, non-existent - basically a joke. Current employee morale is at the lowest point all across the board. Leadership knows it and is still averse to fixing - 

Pros

Salary, benefits, corporate experience.

Cons

Everything else

Great place to work

if you're male or a female without children this is a good place to work I think. Long hours expected and not family friendly. Lots of micromanagement towards the end (2018).

Cons

Some members of the leadership, so much processes.

BelowAverage Company; Very Non Ideal Location

This is not a company that people stick around for too long. The average tenure of a new AE is 7-8 months which is honesty horrendous. The company culture of being laid back and low key is a front. The company is incredibly metric driven. Quotas aren't adjusted for territory or books of business and management / VPs view everything as one in the same. You would see some reps get handed a new deal and be praised for months, meanwhile others would get a client who had already decided not to renew and they were "not executing". Anyone who brought up outside factors contributing to success or failure clearly didn't have a "championship mindset" Not to mention the absolutely pointless meetings, that were more like pep rallies which involved the sales floor being preached to and management giving us incentives for hitting targets such as going to Fort Myers Beach for the millionth time. The Recruiters also lied about OTE and % of employees hitting winners circle The biggest drawback of this role, however is the location. Fort Myers is a town that is suited for my grandma, and even she admitted it was a bit too slow for her. Gartner has about 2/3 of the entire young professional community in Fort Myers. This creates an interesting dynamic where you literally can never get away from your coworkers. They're at the club with you, they're at the beach with you, they're at the next table over at the restaurant you took your date(who also works at Gartner). Overall I would not recommend this role to anyone who has previous sales experience or has confidence to look around - 

Pros

training; facilities; benefits / pto and work life balance

Cons

location; HR; company culture; turnover; luck of the draw

No Thank You

Gartner is a results based company (which is how the company grows ) but being a favorite has high influence as well. I personally believe Gartner needs to train their management teams more throughly. They don’t want you to ask questions because it’s more of a yes sir/maam mentality. Although you may meet your numbers, you MUST be highly collaborative OUTSIDE of work/working hours. This comapny has many happy hours/team outtings that are outside of working hours. If you do not attend, no matter the reason, you are immediately an “outsider”. Advancement will more than likely not be in your future. Great benefits but do not seek help from HR, highly unhelpful. They pay better than most companies in the area.

Pros

great cafe, benefits, pay

Cons

culture, management, parking, growth/advancement, training

Solid Place To Work

As a remote Account Executive, there are inherent challenges that come with the role, but they are easily overcame with proper guidance and leadership. The benefits are very good, with a stellar HRA matching plan, low cost insurance, and 4% 401k matching. Worst part of the job is that there are too many redundant internal meetings which are very hum drum. Most enjoyable part of the job is that Gartner's name is strong enough to open many doors for CIO's and other high level contacts.
