    Former Employee - Account Manager in Remote, OR

    I worked at Forrester Research full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great small company with great benefits. Few products to sell, Marketing and Strategy division has little competition in the market.

    Cons

    Account list constantly changing. Bigger, better competition in the IT space. Quotas way off base with very small bonus amount per quarter, and it's part of your OTE. Just a bit of an immature company, but great analysts and fun environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much change in Q1 - i left then as did many others. Double the products to learn, new team,new boss, new accounts, new web site / experience AND we make nothing till we are over plan for the quarter? yikes. I even sold all my stock. What are you doing?

    I worked at Forrester Research full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    smart researchers and analysts. chance to challenge yourself, new ideas and new questions come your way every day keeping you on your toes

    Cons

    Ridiculous amount of "need tos" tie up analysts' time in administrative stuff that takes away from valuable work. Management doesn't want to share the pot and they like keeping everyone down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get away from the widget model and find a way for people to grow in their roles not just produce more revenue for you
