    I have been working at Forrester full-time


    What makes the Forrester experience iconic? Curiosity. People here are insatiably curious - about colleagues, clients, their potential, and the future. Most importantly, I feel heard and valued. My best days at work are spent trading ideas with people much smarter than me - everyone contributes and the discussion crackles with passion, intelligence, respect, and accountability. My manager trusts me to use my best judgement, coaches me to stretch myself, and is respectful of the need for work/life flexibility. In short, I am treated like a professional.


    Product innovation has been stagnant to date.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the employee experience.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 10+ months. I interviewed at Forrester (Cambridge, MA) in February 2018.


    Avoid at all costs. Complete waste of time. Received random LinkedIn messages from them to set up call for unknown position. They then cacelled several and set up another call. Called me again to discuss a position I applied to a year ago and wanted to duscuss background Then called again to inform me position was closed. Then called me again to set up talk with hiring manager 2 weeka later who then cancelled. Seems very scammy.
