    Former Employee - Associate Account Manager in Paris (France)
    Former Employee - Associate Account Manager in Paris (France)

    I worked at Forrester Research full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance; very friendly environment mostly made up of smart quirky people;
    The company seems to finally have figured out a real strategy in the past year and now heading towards that direction with positive results;
    The job creates the opportunity to have C-level discussions and develop a good professional network.

    Cons

    General climate of condescension from management with the upper hierarchy manifesting with not speaking up the truth;
    The "ecosystem" as they call it turns out to be a real jungle, redundant and made baroque to say the least with a number of middle figures of doubtful value;
    Career paths are still quite blurred and promotions attributed on an uncertain basis, which leaves a lot of wiggle room for some less-than-professional middle managers to push forward their 'protegés'.
    Success in this company is more than any other I've seen in the past structurally based on personal relationships - the fact of having or not a personal good relationship with an analyst might make or break your business, since they still have a great degree of freedom on deciding for whom they have time or not;
    Although there are many exceptions, working with a good deal of analysts will feel to you like turning into the agent of some tyrannic teenage pop star, so you'd better start practicing your zen.
