Smart, driven people, but too much middle management complexity and too much asked of analysts

Pros

Smart colleagues Fun, open culture Diverse workforce

Cons

Too much travel Goals haven't evolved to match the business Company figures out ways to give you more work without increase of pay

Advice to Management

Take the company private. The only way to grow is more salespeople and the only way to cut costs is pay analysts less. At some point, that model breaks.

    Pros

    Overall experience was very good. They treat their employees fairly. The politics and unfairness of middle management at times is difficult to deal with. I certainly recommend any sales person to look into joining Forrester. It has truly helped me understand the benefits of running a world class sales operation.

    Cons

    As mentioned above the unfairness of middle management at times was difficult to deal with.
