    Pros

    There are no pros. People have an illusion that is a big brand but clients and employees are disillusioned soon

    Cons

    Politically charged environment and run like a family affair. No processes followed and very unprofessional culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a process oriented company

    Pros

    If 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.

    Cons

    If 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 ManagementAdvice

    Its 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 "

    India 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 ManagementAdvice

    change India management team and see the India sales team go high and high. Great talent but all wasted.
