    Amazing culture for smart, self-motivated professionals.....not for those that like to watch from the sidelines

    I have been working at Forrester Research full-time (more than an 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'

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

    Pros

    Very interesting work. Great opportunity to learn about technology and marketing trends.

    Cons

    While changing environment can be exciting, Forrester changes for change sake. We have a bunch on middle managers that have been able to stop growth of the company for five year. Yet, they are still in their positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out middle management especially if they have been there for more than five years. Company "guys and woman" have failed this company for too long.
