Sales

Sales (Former Employee)

I worked at Gartner full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat benefits and incentives. There is a certain amount of luck in the territory you're assigned (as with any sales position) but the broad range of product offerings and support do allow you to capitalize on some great rewards. Everyone is accessible & easy to worth with. Plus, the training offered is excellent.

ConsSometimes your successes can be overlooked & promotions can be either be one extreme- very easy or a monumental challenge.

Advice to Senior ManagementA true testament to Gartner is the tenure of so many employees- great feedback from within.

Great Company with Great People

Executive Advisor (Former Employee)

I worked at Gartner full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGartner employs a lot of smart people which make it an exceptional environment to learn and grow. Lot of opportunities to drive high-level interaction with senior managers in IT organizations.

ConsPoor HR management (especially outside of the USA).
After 10 years, the CEO's vision is still the same although the business environment has radically changed. Will Gartner be able to become a real digital company?

Advice to Senior Management- Improve HR management outside of the US.
- Apply to Gartner an analysis of your business model through the lens of the Nexus of Forces.

Internship at Gartner

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Gartner as an intern for less than a year

ProsGood experience and great training. Everyone is very helpful and provide great input. Compensation is great for full-time hires. The ability to work from home when needed is also a plus.

ConsIt's hard to get a full time position as an intern. They expect and require more from you since you have been working with them.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake it easier for interns and temps to apply.

Outstanding company with an excellent brand and talented people driven to help their clients succeed.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Gartner full-time for more than 8 years

ProsSmart people that really care about their clients.

ConsCompensation can be good but it's difficult to maintain top earnings since we're focused so heavily on retention and losing 1 client or a significant part of a client contract can derail you in any given year.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation has been reviewed in the last 6 - 12 months and there have some adjustments made on a case by case basis but overall, compensation is still limited based on the upside potential in the marketplace. Pay AE's for Growth and pay the client service team for retention if you really want to grow the company.
