    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 "

    Pros

    excellent brand name
    opportunties to interact with industry leaders

    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.

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

    I worked at Gartner

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management'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 ManagementAdvice

    An 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

    Pros

    -Great Management
    -Great Training
    -Opportunity to Manage Own Book of Business

    Cons

    -The job is what you put into it, and the outcomes are directly related to the work you put in. That can be a challenge for some people, and that is why I would consider it a con. You're responsible for the success and failures of your book of business.
