Forrester Research Benefits

3.8 out of 5 (6 comments)

Forrester’s US benefits team focuses on employee health and well-being, providing best-in-class health coverage and offering deep discounts from companies such as Dell, MetLife, and Audi. Cambridge, Mass., employees can take advantage of a free on-site fitness center offering exercise classes and equipment, personal training, and locker room facilities.

Forrester offers our Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) employees a comprehensive benefits portfolio, including medical, vision, and life insurance. To our team in Asia Pacific (APAC), we offer personal accident coverage as well. 

Our benefits packages also include financial rewards such as tuition support and referral bonus programs. Our benefits team evaluates the package annually to ensure that it remains competitive and differentiates Forrester from other companies in the market.

    the ease of working with other employees and colleagues for things like time off or working from home was great
    in terms of benefits - everything is laid out and someone is always there to help

    Good - Base salary, ESOP, Vacation days,
    Can be improved - Current Bonus structure, No Profit Sharing,

    15 days vacation when you start, on your 4th year anniversary increases to 20 days. I also like that they pay 50% of monthly mbta pass, so instead of paying $75, i only pay $37.50 pre-tax.

    The benefits are not for young people who rarely visit doctors. I paid quite a bit and never got my money's worth. I cancelled and now pay for my husband's benefits through another company. Benefits communications are abyssal. I don't know what's offered or what it even means to have some of these things. They offer workshops but who has time for that? I just want a simple explanation I can read.
