Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA

I have been working at Forrester Research full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The work is interesting and focuses on cutting edge, industry leading ideas
Employees are very smart, hard-working, and enthusiastic; and the culture is supportive and collaborative
There is openness to telework and schedule flexibility
There is an established history and focus on growing and advancing people within the company, and encouraging employees to move between different parts of the business.

Cons

There are some growing pains to move to a more efficient, process oriented, scalable way of doing business. In the past, we've been challenged by attempts to implement too much change too quickly, though that issue has been recognized and better addressed by management in the last 6-12 months.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    Very smart people that work hard for the client. Sales people are under intense pressure and the company says they look after the clients interests however when quarter end rolls around its all about closing the deal.

    Cons

    Tough business model, senior management is struggling to find right combination of solutions/products, if you are not from Cambridge then you will be a second class citizen. San Francisco employees and other locations are not treated as well. There is a Cambridge centric thought pattern and also very clubby if you are in Cambridge
