Forrester’s US benefits team focuses on employee health and well-being, providing best-in-class health coverage and offering deep discounts. Cambridge, Mass., employees can take advantage of a free on-site fitness center offering exercise classes and equipment, personal training, and locker room facilities.
Forrester offers our European employees a comprehensive benefits portfolio, including medical, vision, and life insurance. To our team in Asia Pacific (APAC), we offer personal accident coverage as well.
Our benefits packages also include financial rewards such as tuition support and referral bonus programs. Our benefits team evaluates the package annually to ensure that it remains competitive and differentiates Forrester from other companies in the market.
Best: comprehensive and tuned to employee needs Could improve: containing health insurance cost
Pros - Great Health care options and really nice employer HSA contributions - Love that we have a Roth 401k option - Encouraged to take time off/personal days when needed - Not frowned upon for taking vacations/using PTO like some companies - Very open and transparent leadership - Volunteer Day each year - Floating Holidays Cons - 401k is average compared to similar companies (50% match up to 3%). - WFH is nice but technically only one day a week (that said, there are currently discussions to alter this) - There area few benefits specific to location that don't have a comparable match to other cities (i.e. fitness center in Cambridge but no subsidy for gyms in other cities, etc), but that's kind of expected.
Robust medical but astronomical in cost at every tier. Decent PTO. WFH flexibility.
Extensive; only two health options however.
Good, comprehensive health insurance, competitive PTO package, 401k, and mat/pat leave has been improved dramatically in the past few years.
One of the best benefits is that Forrester will pay you half of the deductible for the high deductible insurance plan as a way to help you meet that requirement.
Pay is low for the work. Expect you to drive and pay for parking but don't pay as well as Gartner for this role. Solution partner at Forrester makes $175k to $250k whereas at Gartner similar Partner role makes $250 to $350 (managing partner or exec partner)
Best - the healthcare is good, a one day a week work from home policy, and we get a $5,000 / year education stipend. The worst is that the healthcare is not free and the education stipend has quite a few limitations.
Comprehensive health insurance, they just updated maternity leave to be very competitive, and good PTO policy.
Good benefits. Two good health plans to choose from with company contributing to HSA. Dental also is good, but provider choice is limited for some.
