    Best: comprehensive and tuned to employee needs Could improve: containing health insurance cost

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Nashville, Tennessee

    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.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Solution Partner in New York, New York State

    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)

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Associate Consultant in San Francisco, California

    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.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Consultant in San Francisco, California

    Comprehensive health insurance, they just updated maternity leave to be very competitive, and good PTO policy.

  • Oct 30, 2019
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Boston, Massachusetts

    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.
