A great place to start a career that lost its way a little

Pros

Great people, good culture, good quality product

Cons

Poor progression opportunities, dreadful sales management, unrealistic expectations resulting in a huge loss of staff in 2012,

Advice to Management

Re-evaluate how you reward your longest serving staff, so much good talent left recently due to foolish planning and compensations structures

    Pros

    very good brand, service is limited in scope BUT of very good quality when fit is right. some smart people who are dedicated to the customer and their success. seems like a good place to work right out of university - a good first job. few weekend projects or work required outside the normal 8 hour day

    Cons

    Over confident & inexperienced senior management, not thoughtful enough about outcomes. Typically short sighted and selfish senior leadership - a bit out of touch with the day to day complexity the company has created in its processes. A finance driven company rarely is a great place to work. relatively low pay (20-40%depending on geography and position). Not enough accountability in most functions on the business. the company is controlled by the CEO - good bad or indifferent, its the fact you have to know. Training is "on the job" - organized training is not effective.

    Advice to Management

    Forrester is never going to be a growth company unless you pay for it - you need strong players in each role. Top down management isn't progressive enough to be a great company - I can recommend a book to read; Empowered.
