"Sinking Ship-Abandon before it drowns you and your morals in life"

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Mumbai

I worked at Gartner full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIf you are fresher out of college excellent opportunity to make money and if you are experienced candidate from a tier-B companies a "So Called" brand name Gartner would attract you.

ConsIf there is one organization that dis*ts me it has to be Gartner. Every Sales driven organization is aggressive, competitive and crude when it comes to performance no denial in that. But Gartner India is decomp* internally to the core.

Compensation & Benefits- If you manage to close business by taking your prospects for a ride with no concrete product or service, you will make money.

Work/Life Balance- Highly Male chauvinist driven culture. Go and speak to few current employees they would tell you the tale of work life balance.

Senior Management- Their last India H* was fired in a weeks’ time after spending 8 years in Gartner due to his excellent people management skills. I wonder why did they wait for 8 years.

Last but not the least 60% of their current sales force have floated their CV in the market, don't believe me, ask any staffing company which does sales professional hunting.

Advice to Senior ManagementIts high time guys to get out of that shell which has crippled your spine.
You are like that disgusting parent who when lose their child tell each other "don't worry dear, we will make another one "

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Gob Bless Gartner India

Accounts Executive (Current Employee)
Mumbai

I have been working at Gartner full-time for more than a year

Prosexcellent brand name
opportunties to interact with industry leaders
great compensation
respect in industry

ConsIndia leadership team is bunch of jokers
no help provided to sales team by managers and regional head
regional head and managers waste their time discussing strategy rather than being on field.

Advice to Senior Managementchange India management team and see the India sales team go high and high. Great talent but all wasted.

The overall experience made me learn on how to grow my business as a franchise. The management was a disappointment.

Accounts Executive (Former Employee)
Mumbai

I worked at Gartner

ProsTrust Bases Relationships with clients
Grow business and territory as your own franchise
Good compensation plans

ConsManagement's leadership skills
Internal perception on an individual's future and leadership skills based on what your reporting manager feels, and not on performance
India head has no background of real sales so all is based on mindset and perception

Advice to Senior ManagementAn individual's growth in the company is based on the manager's decision alone. Its not even performance.. This allows managers to have biased attitude towards certain individuals which even the India Head relies on.. which is shame as it increases politics and more people leave the company which means more clients and business loss

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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.
