    - good work environment, fun, intelligent and friendly people that are always willing to help
    - good product

    - excellent networking opportunities
    - excellent office location

    Cons

    - too many unnecessary business processes slowing you down
    - unless you are in sales or a top analyst, there is little recognition for your work
    - non-transparent salary structure, bonus structure is demotivating
    - too many organizational changes coupled with unrealistic expectations from senior management
    - too US centric

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of processes that slow down and frustrate your employees, introduce a clear career path for each team/department, be more transparent on salaries and promote more employees outside the headquarters into senior management positions

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

    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,

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