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

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.
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.

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"
Research Specialist | Stamford, CT | Dec 5, 2018
Great company with opportunities to grow
Assist software companies schedule appointments with Gartner research analysts to provide an introduction and or update on new products. In this role I have learned from management the importance to build an individual brand which will reflect upon the department and company overall. In addition, build relationships and earn the trust of our client while providing excellent customer care to our clients. Adopting the mindset of "There is always room for improvement" it is difficult at times to continually identify opportunities to strive for excellence. Working as a quiet leader and assisting my colleagues and manager has always been an enjoyable part of my day.
Client Manager | Fort Myers, FL | Sep 8, 2018
the hardest part of the job is keeping your head above water. Lots of copy and paste, very administrative. Morale in the workplace is pretty much at a low point.

Demanding & Ever-Changing
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
ProsRemote Work, Good Benefits
ConsSome positions require excessive travel

Caveat Emptor -
Gartner is like joining a cult. They are doing a great job luring in young people and weeding out experienced people. The CEO has very aggressive growth targets and sales people are going to 1-2 accounts per person. If you cant hit your number, you have no place else to go so they manage you out, often replacing you with a younger person. Many managers are young and in-experienced. They manage up and dont take care of their people, let alone the clients. There is extremely high margin the research contracts. Just check out how many people it takes to renew the business. The company is growing rapidly - but it is not all organic growth - rather growth by acquisition. Huge pressure to convert CEB from enterprise licenses to named user model. Mgt believes that clients like paying more money for the same service in a named user model. Top down sends the message - great place to work - if you keep sending the message many believe - as it is a cult. The product/service Gartner provides is outstanding. The sales organization for all sectors is transaction. Ironic that they sell strategic advice in a transnational format.
Prosgreat insight from brilliant people
Consvery metric micro management driven

Good framework
Gartner invests in developing associates through the distillation of essential elements of success...the "science"...around which one gets to wrap their own individual "art."

What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Gartner?
Asked Feb 4, 2019
It is not enough to be client focused and wanting for your clients to succeed. You must enjoy a continually competitive culture driven by metrics.
Answered Mar 1, 2020
Be authentic. Research what the company does and what your specific business unit focuses on, and then explain how your skills will benefit the team you will be on. Prepare questions beforehand to get a better understanding of the role and If it is the right fit for you, as well as questions about what growing with the company honestly looks like.
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.
