    Pros

    The culture at Forrester is helpful. Everyone will offer their assistance, whether or not they are actually able to assist. Most of the people are really great people, and great care is taken during the interview process to ensure you will fit into that culture.

    Cons

    The senior management is immature and inexperienced. Most of them are home grown. Change is not managed, aligned to company objectives or planned effectively. Mission, vision, and values change frequently, and corporate objectives are not clearly communicated or quantified to help measure achievement or results. Cross selling is difficult and falters in front of the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When sales attrition is close to 30%, something is seriously wrong with your market approach. Hire people who are experienced enough to know what they are doing, and then let them do it while you track and measure and make adjustments based on results. You will never compete with Gartner until you do.
