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.
Work life, people
One month into COVID, Gartner let go of about half of their events team. We were not told of any efforts by the company to try to keep staff employed. Folks who had been with the company for 15+ years were let go, and now all those roles are open again, and Gartner won’t even interview those former employees.This is not the place to be if you’re hoping for a company that cares about its employees. It’s not the place to be if you’re looking for diversity in leadership. It’s not the place to be if you want to feel secure in your role in the event of another pandemic. Gartner had the potential to do the right thing; they made more money during the pandemic on virtual events than they made in the year prior with live events. And they STILL let go so many hardworking, loyal associates. They should be ashamed and honestly hope the CEO loses sleep at night over the salary he kept while his former employees struggled to buy groceries.
Travel during a normal year
Cliquey teams, no diversity in leadership, no job security, no WFH flexibility for events teams
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.
Benefits, great team members, remote working options.
Office space limited.
Compensation was great. Senior management to C level support was very bad. They fish in the same old client pool of about 35K clients and are afraid of new growth, and won't spend marketing dollars for growth. Petty issues pop up regularly as middle managers/directors will try to throw you under the bus in order to look good to senior/C level folks. Internal reliance upon cheap labor HB1 visa folks and poor outsourced tech are abysmal to the detriment of all. More time is spent fixing errors than advancing the business. Do work at Gartner for the experience if you can and try to last a year or two but keep your resume/cv fresh.
This is an excellent place to start your career as a salesperson. Gartner is one of the few companies that still invests in its employees with paid training. You will learn lots of valuable skills while being paid an actual salary with benefits for several weeks. To date, this was one of my most valuable and favorite work experiences and companies to work for. It was my first real job right out of college. There are many opportunities for growth and career paths to advance in the company. The company promotes from within, the management is supportive and inclusive, and for the most part, everyone seems happy. Another thing to note is that I noticed that if a job wasn't a right fit, management seemed to work with you to find a job that was a better fit for employees, instead of just letting people go. The company really seemed to want their employees to succeed, at least when I worked there 6-7 years ago in the branch I worked in. So if sales weren't your thing, they'd work with you to find a place where you would excel within the company. That seems to be a rare thing nowadays. I wish I had stayed with the organization- the only reason I got a new job was that I had to move home for personal reasons (I had relocated out of state for the job.) Truly, an excellent company to begin your career with. You will learn so much!
Friendly colleagues, supportive management, laptop provided, free coffee, beautiful cafeteria, paid training, great benefits/salary, positive environment
None I can think of
You can learn a lot working here. It is often described as getting your MBA. The pay and benefits are fair. Unfortunately, women are treated poorly, especially in the EMSE office. Over 90% of leadership are men. Women who raise concerns of discrimination and harassment are at best not taken seriously and at worst retaliated against by HR. This culture leads to women feeling uncomfortable coming to work and many high performing women exiting. If the company views women as equals, they should hold toxic and abusive leaders accountable.
Salary, benefits, opportunities to learn
Lacking diversity, lacking inclusion, toxic leadership

Jobs at Gartner
Gartner was a total whirlwind of working with some great people and absolutely horrible management and metrics. Drink the company Kool aid or be cast out to like a disease. The work we conducted every day was very unfulfilling. Management was completely fake and their expectations were completely unrealistic. I’m back in real estate making twice as much money as Gartner paid and 100x happier. Instead of this company buying $3000 pool tables, maybe it should invest in some ethics classes.
Good pay, working with some good people, food is great
Very unfulfilling work, management is fake and overworks everyone to the bone
Terrible work environment for "black, and or hispanic" legal assistants. Preferential treatment towards "white" legal assistants. Office manager is two-faced, treacherous and HR is pitiful! If you don't mind working hard while "white" legal assistants spend workday shopping on-line and on the phone, Garter & Bloom IS NOT THE FIRM FOR YOU!
Some of the administrative staff is o.k.
Management is racist and HR is a joke!
Initially hesitant, I felt obliged to write this review to shed some light on my experience within the client services organization in Fort Myers FL for those considering client management or other client services roles. The organization is metrics obsessed and without apology. If you don't completely agree with this notion or challenge it with merit you will be looked at negatively. You must not only accept but also embrace a mindset of constantly wanting to chase after metrics each and every day. The company will tell you to put the mission before the metrics but actions don't back that up. It isn't enough to help the client succeed in their goals without simultaneously hitting your metrics. Don't take this lightly if you are considering a role within the client services organization. The company promotes individuals who are great at hitting their metrics so management is full of people who put this above all else. It's fundamental to the culture. You are left with daily dashboards, reports of client activity and weekly meetings why so and so isn't opening research or pushing your call. Be prepared for this if you decide to move forward with a client services role. Despite all of this if you log an activity your manager or their manager deems to be incorrect they will let you go without warning. In other words, make sure every single activity your clients do is accounted for but do it correct 100% of the time or they will terminate you without warning. Good luck.
For the area, the benefits and base salaries are tough to beat, depending on the department. Turnover is high due to poor management and broken promises of growth & income opportunities. Absence of trust and recognition for a job-well-done is rampant. Too many secrets and lies for an effective and positive working environment to exist.
I used to love Gartner, the people, the job, the collaboration, and the integrity but things have changed in the past few years. Integrity went out the window and the environment became less enjoyable, more frightening. People were fired for things that upper management encouraged and people were praised for doing unethical practices- because the revenue was there. It used to be such an incredible place to work but that is no longer the case.
Gartner is a great company. Like any company there are pros and cons. When I started there the company culture was better. There was a sense that they really cared about their people. Now, not so much..
Good benefits, especially PTO, Smart and influential people to work with, Partner with C-level and Director members, Teamwork and Collaboration
Losing perks daily, Management is not well aligned, Metrics metrics metrics, Inconsistent data that requires manual tracking, Client Manager's are treated as admins
The management was completely inept and had no idea what direction the company was headed so your tasks changed daily. It was difficult to complete any goal, as the goals for the two departments I worked at over 2 years changed on a weekly basis. There was no sense of accomplishment because you never actually accomplished anything as your tasks and role and goals constantly changed. Over two years I has EIGHT different managers, each with new goals for the department.
Great career choice if you are new to the working field. Not much opportunity for growth in the client services organization. For the most part, its a great culture. Its always relative to what your leadership or "management" looks like. Good culture, could use more diversity, most people genuinely care, open to change.
