I've been with Gartner for 4 years and still love working here. Most of my friends come from work and I've gotten promoted 2 times. My manager is amazing. I'd recommend working here for anyone interested. Most people are very happy and I feel like I am constantly learning new skills
Compensation, people, flexibility, coaching
It's hard, work/life balance can be tough
Gartner is a great company to work for overall. Great, salary, benefits, work life balance, and the compensation is very rewarding depending on how hard you work

Culture can improve, along with internal processes
Great place for sales training and boot-camp, to cut your teeth, to see if sales is really for you. However, I found out I was making 20-25k less in my base than some 4 years less experience class-of cohort and when I asked for a comp true-up, I was given a $3k counter. Insulting but understandable different money pools, new-hire from Corp. HR money pool v.s. my VP's pocket money budget pool. Great place to network, they definitely hire top-tiered people.
Gartner has a great culture and you will learn great cold calling, prospecting, and account management skills. Enjoyed my experience with the company and they are very structured to their growth mission. However, there seems to be a decent amount of turnover after a year or two.
Gartner overall is a good company, but could learn a bit from its own research on driving productivity and not slowing reps down with internal processes.

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.
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 place to establish a great sales career. Excellent training and people that truly care about your development. Work culture is something that is very important to them and they strive to keep everyone happy and productive.

Performance based promotions can be hard if you are in an under-performing business unit
Great company with a spectacular track record in the technology space. The Small/Medium Business unit on their End User side is really experiencing some growing pains. They've promoted some very junior people into roles that may be slightly above their skill levels. It starting to show in some struggles their having.
Great Culture, the Weather in Florida, Cool Perks
Inexperienced Management, They're seeing a lot of turnover
