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

I worked at Forrester Research full-time (more than 5 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I worked at Forrester Research

    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.
