How much then?

Stinky wanted to know how much a Gartner analyst makes...

The ARmadgeddon staff estimates (.3 probability) this to a range starting from £60k for a junior to £120k for a senior analyst.

Has anyone got comments?

About right on the bottom end - a little higher on the top (RD/VP - $125-145K)

I interviewed for a analyst job at IDC, coming from a related field (though had not been an analyst). $75K.

At IDC however everyone has been there forever, so I assume that it's a good place to work and the money gets up there after 15-20 years.

I went through a Gartner RD's diary and job requirements once. Apart from not liking the profile (a relentless pressure to sell services) it was a HUGE workload.

Those that are down at 60k are _earning_ it.

When I left I had a base salary of $164K. My impression was that more senior VPs earned over $200K

If you had a base of $164 you would have been one of the highest earners in the analyst pool!

IDC was advertising a sales director at £70-80k recently...

There was a London based 'senior analyst' position advertised recently for £80k (which at current exchange rates is about $150k).

Gartner is looking for a Research Director in Germany and offers 120-130k Euro p.a. http://www.jobpilot.de/misc/adframe/jobpilot/7d6/1f/1666978.htm

There are levels below "analyst" so true entry level maybe down to $45-50k or so. Very high end maybe $225k, but IDC is an outlier here: Particulary from "research director" on up, analysts get an increasing cut of the action, so an SVP or GVP who has several services under him/her, and beats budget by a bunch, can make more than analysts at any other firm - like a Ponzi scheme (can you say Mary Kay?). That's why you have IDC analysts crawling over one-another in blatant competition with themselves to sell you some barely thought out new program or multiclient. Why is there so little turnover at VP level and up at IDC? Because nobody in their right mind at Gartner, Forrester or Ovum would hire these "analysts" for the compensation they receive at IDC - so they have nowhere to go.
