I have been working at Forrester Research full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Forrester has a strong desire to hire and promote from within, which has afforded me many opportunities over the years. I'm still in love with my job, and look forward to coming to work each day.
Great corporate culture that values individual input - a true meritocracy.
Good location for commuters.

Cons

We're always changing - this can be a negative for people looking for a quiet place. Change does not come without a certain amount of discomfort.
Poor access to craft beers in neighborhood. Need to go to Davis Sq for that.

    I have been working at Forrester Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great environment, cool perks like ice cream truck, cappucino, fun sports (baggo, ping pong, volleyball, yoga, running trail, etc). SUPER smart culture - very stimulating

    Cons

    Can tend to be a contrarian culture at times - highly analytical population. Compensation could be better (equity and cash). Although global, could be better at operating in a truly global way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forrester is a really special place - keep the culture alive as we scale. Hold accountability and focus on the few things that will keep us 'winning'
