    Current Employee - Account Manager in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Forrester Research full-time for 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.

    Pros

    New sales leaders have provided new direction, strategy and energy into the salesforce

    Cons

    Some legacy employees still affected by past two years of underperformance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep making changes that are based on input from clients and field personnel versus the boardroom.
