Current Employee - Account Manager in Boston, MA
Current Employee - Account Manager in Boston, MA

I have been working at Forrester Research full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great culture, smart people, work/life balance respected above all. Sales people are treated respectfully. You will learn so much, it will position you for success whether you stay or leave to pursue your career elsewhere. Benefits are fantastic!

Cons

Pay is on the low side within the industry. If you are in sales, it's luck of the draw as to whether or not you will get a set of profitable accounts. Not very proactive in terms of content and product training. Must be a self-starter, no hand holding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop taking on too much too soon. Geo alignment for sales is recommended to foster better client relationships.

    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.
