Pros

Growth, challenge, networking, client base

Cons

Individual performance is diluted by the fact that goals are heavily team performance impacted, and the 'matrix' concept is a tremendous dis-incentive.,

Advice to Management

Growth in the past 4 years has outpaced management's progress in evolving the resourcing and performance measurement criteria. The leadership needs to upgrade and update their thinking.

    Pros

    Forrester suits me; their culture, the people and the opportunity to stretch my mind on a regular basis make it the ideal place to work. Goals are achievable and the pay scale benefits those that overachieve; if you're not happy with the comp. plan it's probably because you are not closing business but that is true anywhere you work.

    Cons

    At times, middle management can forget that they too were once in your role. There is some serious drinking of the kool aid taking place in the training between when they were a sales rep. to when they become a sales manager.

    Advice to Management

    Remember, even great research still needs great people to sell it!
