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

    Pros

    Continuous coaching and training - you learn every single day. The opportunity to have a disproportionate impact on your clients' business, and on their success. Work with super-intelligent and passionate people, in a strong team setting across lines of business and geographies. Great recognition, uncapped earnings potential, great benefits.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone, you have to be willing to challenge yourself, to learn new ways of doing things, of applying best practices. If that's not for you, you won't be happy here.

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

    Pros

    Still looks good on your cv for the next job There are a number of people there with the ‘can do’ attitude and they are fantastic- you just have to find them!

    Cons

    Large turnover means constant pressure of being re-evaluated by leadership, regular changes in org structure/ hierarchy and lack of job security Expectation is to work way beyond 9-5 to keep up with meetings and expectations No clear direction shared for progression; promotion is at the whim of your manager Lack of overall strategy and large amount of manual process - lack of practicing what they preach

    "If you are a woman, you are at a significant disadvantage - EMSE Egham, UK"

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Gartner

    Pros

    You will be exposed to research, thought leaders, and information that can make a positive impact on organisations. You will learn how to sell to CXOs and will grow your business & technology acumen. Gartner rewards salespeople who achieve 130% of their quota with an all-expense paid trip. Out of University, you can make £50k. If you achieve “Winners Circle”, you can be promoted in 2-3 years to Management increasing your pay to £80k. If you are able to persevere through adversity, get a manager who supports you, and deliver results consistently, you can grow your career within Gartner.

    Cons

    This applies to the EMSE channel in Egham, UK. 90% of VPs and 80% of Sales Managers are men. This heavily male dominated and supported environment has led to a toxic workplace for women. Women are sexually harassed and discriminated against. Those who are consistent top performers are blocked from promotions, and are not provided the coaching, support and opportunities that men are given. Many women complain of sexist & inappropriate comments and behaviour, or report being sexually harassed to their managers and/or HR, only to be made fun of, punished, or sacked. At a corporate level, you are advised to report harassment to HR. But HR within EMSE discriminates against women, retaliates against women who report sexual harassment, and works to protect the men who harass, discriminate and create toxic work environments. This has resulted in high turnover (40% attrition in first year), especially among women who become unable to work in this unhealthy environment. If you are a woman considering joining this channel, you may want to first consider that this is a heavily male-dominated environment that has a track record of rewarding men and punishing women.
