Heeding Its Own Advice

Sales Executive (Current Employee) Cambridge, MA

ProsForrester is transforming itself to show the same best practices that it advises clients to adopt. This means new people, systems upgrades, realignment of some offerings, etc. Senior executives actually turned to Forrester analysts to advise them on some of these changes.

ConsIt's hard to grow and change at the same time. Management has revised its original expectations while remaining bullish on the company's future. In the meantime, it's a little like swimming across a river after a heavy rain.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo exactly what you're doing, and be patient. Focus on repeatable processes and on collaboration. You can achieve operational excellence while still being a people-oriented company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
