Pros

An intellectually challenging work environment with lots of learning opportunities.
Great people to work with, Forrester employees tend to be really nice and friendly .

Cons

No career development path, the initiatives in this space just don't work and there's no follow up on the review systems in place.

Advice to Management

The bonus compensation system is demotivating for anyone other than analyst or a sales person.

Analyst who overperform on their advisory goal get compensated directly for this, sales gets a commission on all their deals, all other employees only get a bonus if the company performs according to plan without taking into account their personal performance.

    Pros

    the people you work with the opportunities to learn. being part of research teams help you get a good understanding of IT topics, work with senior analysts can boost your understanding of the industry. good place to hone quantitative and qualitative skills. client work can give you visibility outside your company

    Cons

    juniors spend a lot of time with powerpoint and excel doing repetitive work. some task flow inefficiencies in the document production makes it long and tedious for juniors. your manager can be located in another office and can change quite frequently making the relationship difficult. long hours during peak times (end of quarters)

    Advice to Management

    invest more in training

    "Rough place to work at (little respect for people, very low salaries for anyone not a researcher or sales rep)."

    Pros

    A great place for keeping abreast of emerging business technologies.

    Cons

    If you're not a Sales rep or an Analyst, you're a human commodity, interchangeable at any moment.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to think about employees, about training allowance or development programs for instance: stop communicate year after year, just do it.
