ProsSmart people. Great work culture. Not too much bureaucracy. You are often what you make of yourself.IT

ConsConstant change. Forrester has never shied away from changes. It's surprising that it still has not mastered change management. To many projects. Too many moving targets. But all the same people spinning around doing them all.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
