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

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.

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

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

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

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.

Great benefits and 20+ days of PTO. Had to leave because my team got relocated otherwise I would have stayed. Pay could have been better given the cost of living in DC is high.

I've worked many types of jobs with many types of managers in my life as I have been working since I was 16. I have never met a more incompetent management team then the management at Gartner. And while the leadership at the top was OK. Middle management is grossly incompetent.

Gartner provides a good work life balance and their compensation is fair, not outstanding. Job security is not very good and management varies from dept to dept.

Focus is primarily on selling and retaining customers with little regard to the product or people they sell it to. As long as you can check off the metric every month you will be good and advance quickly.

Cons

Growth at all cost model. Culture changing as the business realizes organic opportunities as slowing - so company is starting to slowly chip away at employee rewards/benefits/etc. High turnover so very inexperienced managers many are totally unqualified for roles. Core business of research is solid - other business units lack focus, funding, and business support.

Consulting is a difficult environment with a small number of really good consultants and a very large number of generalist consultants. Leadership has historically been focused on hitting monthly numbers at all costs and often to the detriment of the project teams. It is extremely difficult to take vacation and effectively if you do you have to make it up at some point during the year or you will miss your utilization targets. Pay is below market for several key specialty areas and HR does not incorporate upticks for specialties in compensation models. Annual review process is opaque and heavily reliant on hitting utilization and other financial targets above all else. Overall the project work can be rewarding given the right project teams and management.

Great place to start your sales career but due to enormous growth there is a large amount of leadership that is under-qualified. Gartner also provides a great benefits package.

Gartner is a great org, with very sharp employees. A leader in Research and consulting, it is ultimately a sales-driven organization. Great benefits and flexible work environments for the delivery teams.
