Overall Reviews at Gartner

Director of Business Development | Fort Myers, FL | Jan 14, 2020
Gartner hypes their inclusion/diversity/veteran support, but they do NOT follow through
Gartner spends more money marketing their support of diversity, inclusion and veteran support, than they invest in their ability to hire talented people from any of the groups they supposedly support. They have people quitting their career in the military reserves because they REFUSE to support them continuing to perform their 2 weeks a year of reserve drill. Also, they fail to actually follow through on the book they claim is part of their sales management philosophy, 'Mindset: The new psychology of success'...they actually just fire people forcefully, not develop them further, if they struggle after being hired.
ProsCompensation, Branding
ConsManagement support, leadership philosophy, follow-through
IT Analyst | Stamford, CT | Oct 8, 2019
Great people to work with
Even though benefits are good, life\work balance is promoted and people are awesome to work with, I noticed a high employment rotation, lots of contractors and interns in and out. Perhaps that is what makes the wheels to spin well at Gartner.
Account Executive | Irving, TX | Mar 28, 2016
Respected company, good compensation plans
Great brand name and respected company among customers and competitors. Good work/life balance in most cases, there is a lot to do but freedom in scheduling the work.

Administrative Coordinator | Stamford, CT | Mar 6, 2016
Productive and cool workplace but no place to advance
A typical day at work would consist of me going into the office at 8am. I would unpack my company laptop at my desk and the start working on projects that I have been assigned for the associates that our team of Computer Financial Consultants manages. That includes getting information on clients, putting in data to salesforce, Excel spreadsheets, emials, and personal projects for the associates, ect. I also manage all the associates expenses . Which I make a report and find receipts which they send and send it to FL where the main headquarters is . I make travel arrangements for the associates daily. Car service arrangements too. Keep a filing system. Also a inventory system for the office. I fax and copy all important documents. I pick up most important phone calls from clients and associates as well.
Prosgood pay
Consno benefits, Long term positions

Was an enjoyable assignment with a fair remuneration plan.
A very Professional Organization that was fair to their customers and employees. In addition, provided continuous training. The most difficult part of the assignment was major travel which was about 22 days per/month.
Proshad high quality recognition rewards for exceptional performance.
Consthe physical distance from my manager was approximately 500 miles.

Growing pains
Gartner has been a great place to work, but is experience some obvious growing pains in its selection of sales management. Likely to turn around in the future.
Business Development Representative | Fort Myers, FL | May 18, 2017
Poor Management/No Job Security
Gartner looks great on a resume, as well as the connections you make with c-level executives and Analysts. As a top achiever, a mentor/coach and a shadow lead who introduced candidates to Gartner's culture, I was dissappointed in how abruptly SMB shifted away from my morals and values. I found my achievements meant little and my job was never secure (all things I was told to tell applicants) "Limitless opportunity" was very limited and the culture became very corrupt. My manager was known for how much business she brought in, but never interrogated for how she sold it. She taught my team how to deceive my clients, lie to them and manipulate them to bring in a deal. Her email editing and forging skills were spectacular - she was valued for this behavior by VP's. Playing the corporate politics game is crucial here (but this is likely relevant for all SMB sales careers). Because services are sold through manipulation and when they weren't needed, retaining the accounts was nearly impossible. SMB will need to make some big changes if they want to save the department (hence the downward spiral many of us 2-year vets have experienced). Summary: Ask a new SMB Gartner rep and they'll say Gartner is awesome. Ask someone who has been there for a couple years... odds are they are trying to get out ASAP. My advice would be to get many alternative thoughts on Gartner before you apply. Current reps are compensated very nicely for telling you what you want to hear.
ProsYoung atomosphere, great resume builder, good pay for being straight out of college
ConsPoor management, no job security, misleading incentives
Senior Director of Operations | Remote | Mar 4, 2020
Gartner was a great place to work. Unfortunately my role was duplicative after the acquisition. Having said that I would recommend Gartner as a great place to work.
Client Services Specialist | Stamford, CT | Sep 9, 2019
Change of management.
I spent 4-years at Gartner and my biggest concern was the constant change of manager. I had a half a dozen bosses and this was disconcerting, because, even though I was a great employee, my work history was forgotten. I knew all aspects of my job and I was good at it. However, I had to prove it for each passing manger. This takes time which better spent becoming familiar with taking on other assignments. And Since management only knew me for a short period of time, I was unable receive references for attempting another position within the same company.
ProsFree fruit.
Cons"Too many chefs spoil the soup"

Answered Nov 30, 2019
Is the company open to employees transferring to another location? If so, how long do you have to be in a position to request a transfer?
Asked Oct 25, 2016
It depends on your boss. Some areas of recruiting are open, others are not. Overall it is frowned upon. They are very behind the ball on this one-more evidence of a culture that is not innovative, strategic or forward thinking.
Answered Sep 26, 2018
Yes, Gartner says and tries to accommodate your career goals. 2 years is the time frame required to transfer unless you have very high success earlier.
Answered Mar 12, 2018
What is the company culture like?
Asked Oct 25, 2016
Not good on the recruiting side. Managers who have been there for years that should not be managing. Very reactive model. Nothing is planned and recruiters are very low on the totem pole.
Answered Sep 26, 2018
Relatively conservative compared to younger companies. Seems hierarchical (top down), but not bureaucratic.
