I have been working at International Data Group full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

A collaborative environment where new and challenging opportunities exist where I can continue to grow and develop professionally, a place where work/life balance is appreciated and new thoughts are... welcomed.

Cons

More employees need to keep an open mind to change

Advice to Management

Continue to lead by example

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Forrester full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

I want to work here as long as possible. My projects excite me every day. I love my coworkers and managers, we celebrate each other's milestones and make each other laugh. My manager was so... supportive during a difficult time in my life. People in general are very nice too, not to mention brilliant. I actually can't think of anyone I dislike working with. I feel respected, like I'm contributing to new, big projects with clear goals. I recognize this from the top leadership. From my POV, everyone is welcome to speak up and contribute. The office building is modern, open, and in a lovely location. I take walks along along Alewife brook pkwy all the time. Music is celebrated here, you often find guitar players in the main coffee break area. I think the benefits are great and also improving.

Cons

I'm not sure what more I could want in a job. We can always work toward being less siloed, but I get a sense that this is generally known and we work to fix that.
