    I have been working at Gartner full-time

    Pros

    The company continues to perform each and every quarter - new associates have the opportunity to have impact early in their careers, and training and development is second to none. Work life balance is good, and if you feel comfortable in a performance driven environment with the pressure that entails, this is the company for you!

    Cons

    High growth means a lot of change to embrace, and for some it is challenging to keep pace with the rising expectations. Better collaboration is required to ensure the company goals are achieved as a team.

    Advice to Management

    Get aligned on the corporate objectives and how you can support others to achieve their goals.

    Pros

    Great development opportunities, real growth mindset, supportive management and company structure ... Free gym, very accessible. If you work hard you will go far

    The commute is a pain but realistically balance what you want in life against if you are willing to sit in traffic

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - excellent opportunity for career progression based on successful performance
    - amazing training and onboarding programs to evolve your professional skills
    - high performance environment where everyone has the will to win and wants to be successful
    - highly collaborative environment where you are given the opportunity to join mentorship programs, encouraged to work as a team to find creative solutions
    - opportunity to move to different parts of the business to further your understanding of the business, if you wish

    Cons

    - personally, I have a long commute so by the time I get home I don't have the energy to socialise or spend time with friends and family (Mon - Fri)
    - many management layers (could be considered a pro in that there are lots of management and promotion opportunities)
    - in current role, I don't have the opportunity to earn commission despite it essentially being a sales role

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gartner is a vibrant, challenging, focused but fun place to work. You will be surrounded by passionate people who work hard, collaborate and drive success, and its working. I have worked with and for a range of businesses and I have found a pretty unique environment here.
    You can see people around you who have succeeded and been promoted, it's meritocratic environment and people seem to be puling in the same direction.

    Cons

    Some processes are a little inflexible (although the rational behind it mostly makes sense) and they use a lot of metrics and data which can be a lot to understand when you first start

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at Gartner full-time

    Pros

    Nice office, lots of rewards to aim for, good coffee

    Cons

    Corporate environment
    Staff are all about hitting goals
    Money is the only thing that matters and management don't care about new staff, very much a high and fire and anyone that sticks is good.

    Advice to Management

    Care about staff more

    I have been working at Gartner full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Gartner takes good care of its associates and is a place of great opportunities

    Cons

    The company is changing incredibly fast in the past 2 years because of major acquisitions, and often it feels like organized chaos, and a working can feel like a battlefield.

    Advice to Management

    Don;t buy anything for a while...
