A great place to learn.

Consultant (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsAn intellectually challenging work environment with lots of learning opportunities.
Great people to work with, Forrester employees tend to be really nice and friendly .

ConsNo career development path, the initiatives in this space just don't work and there's no follow up on the review systems in place.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe bonus compensation system is demotivating for anyone other than analyst or a sales person.

Analyst who overperform on their advisory goal get compensated directly for this, sales gets a commission on all their deals, all other employees only get a bonus if the company performs according to plan without taking into account their personal performance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
