Featured Review

Current Employee - Analyst

I have been working at Forrester full-time for more than a year

Pros

You are accountable for your own success, and you manage the path to getting there. Onboarding was fantastic, and the company prepares you well for customer interactions. The work is rewarding, and... the team is supportive.

Cons

Honestly can't think of many downsides to working here. You are expected to produce, and that's the way it should be.

Advice to Management

Please continue to focus on our customers!
