    I have been working at Forrester Research full-time

    Pros

    - good work environment, fun, intelligent and friendly people that are always willing to help
    - good product
    - great opportunity to learn about the tech industry
    - excellent networking opportunities
    - excellent office location

    Cons

    - very few opportunities to progress, no clear career path for most positions
    - 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
