Will change your life for the better!

Account Manager (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

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

ProsGreat 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!

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
