Pros

Forrester gives you the opportunity to work with a very smart bunch of analysts, has a great data library and it's a very good place to start your career in the market reserach world.

Cons

the managemnet at Forrester is terrible, the atmos[here is one of competition rather than collaboration and the focus is on winning advisory and consulting work than delivering syndicated research.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management nees to communciate better with employees, understand their day-to-day responsibilites and issues and provide support in developing their careers

    I worked at Forrester Research

    Pros

    Surrounded by many thought-leaders
    Young, energetic culture
    Well respected organization
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Lower end of pay scale
    Promote people to management that should stay individual contributors
    Analyst departures disrupt "business continuity"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep challenging analysts to make the call and stay on their toes. Company is only as good as the analysts.

    CEO shielded from truth

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Forrester Research

    Pros

    Analysts are very smart and good to work with - care, in spite of politics and metrics. Good work/life flexibility.

    Cons

    Most of those reporting to CEO are not qualified to do their jobs - they rose through the rank by being "one of the boys" (and a girl). Youth-biased culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some fresh blood for leadership positions.
