Approves of CEO

I have been working at Forrester full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great benefits, flexible work hours - good work/life balance, a very supportive team, and a warm culture. More vacation/time off than anyone else I know, plus I get to leave at a reasonable hour or work from home occasionally.

Cons

Lots of change happening quickly with a relentless attitude from management that this is for the best, and we must happily embrace it or be left behind

Advice to Management

Be more transparent!

    Cons

    -Low Salaries to start
    -High turnover
    -Confusing policy/matrix and executive decisions

    Actually listen to the concerns of staffers and make other offices feel included. Common thought is that everything revolves around Cambridge and no one cares about other offices.
