Most Commented

  • Health Insurance(25 comments)

    Very reasonably priced (both the premier and the saver options in the US). Forrester contributes to an HSA for the saver option.

  • 401K Plan(24 comments)

    Standard 401k plan that allowed for employees to select from a wide array of investment plans. The support structure wasn't quite there. There was typical matching of funds by the company.

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(16 comments)

    Very healthy for new employees and is defined, not unlimited. I like that it's a defined number of days. Personal days are also very fair.

Health insurance was great. Time off wasn't as flexible as I'd have liked. Expected to work near holidays and not take off. WFH, while offered, was overly scrutinized.

If you choose the HDHP (High Deductible He4alth Plan, they contribute$1,200 per year to the deductible. Forrester also has a nice mat5ch for your 401K if you choose to contribute.

It’s great! I got 4 months off for maternity leave. I have to PPO insurance - I didn’t have to pay for any doctors visit, only had to pay for what the insurance didn’t cover at the hospital. Also has 401k matching.

Decent time off, 401k match is fine. paternity leave has improved. health insurance is standard. overall benefits are pretty standard - could use more to get to 5 stars.

Pretty traditional benefits (insurance, 401k match, etc) but the vendors they use for the benefits are all good so you don't have to worry about finding doctors in your network etc.
