    Senseless HR policies and poor leadership will destroy the company's previous great people culture.

    I have been working at Forrester Research full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people to collaborate with.

    Pros used to be great work-life balance because the company allowed analysts - who have to travel a lot - to work from home when not on the road. Unfortunately, the current leadership seems obsessed with changing this. But, if you can land an analyst job as a home worker, it has a great work life balance.

    There is now a policy where you can request to work from home no more than 1 day a week. (A significant reduction in home working for many).

    It's a great place for young people to gain experience.

    Cons

    Lots of travel and now that analysts also have to commute to work and lose productive time in commuting as well as traveling nights and weekends, the analyst job is really only great for young singles without a home life or people who already live near to one of the offices. (San Francisco, Dallas, DC, NYC or Cambridge in the USA). If the current "policy" is enforced, expect to see any analyst with a long commute to seriously look for work elsewhere. (It's one thing to take a job with a long commute knowing what you are getting into - it's another thing altogether when the policy is changed after you take a job based on working mostly from home and then they change the rules). 

    The "leadership" team below the executive level is young, inexperienced and hyper-focused on managing up - looking after themselves and not on empowering and inspiring the talent below. There appear to be constant political battles in leadership. 

    There is a culture of fear of speaking out. Leadership talks about supporting open collaboration but the ugly truth is that people are afraid of voicing any opinion that is not in line with leadership for fear of reprisals. 

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn what it means to inspire people to follow you.

    Forcing people to do anything is never good. Insisting people come into the office when they are already productive working from home is demoralizing and counter productive. Forrester used to put its employees first. This latest changes signal the opposite. The goal is laudable - to increase collaboration. But the assumption is you need an office to collaborate. It's so twentieth century thinking.
