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

Pros

Forrester is transforming itself to show the same best practices that it advises clients to adopt. This means new people, systems upgrades, realignment of some offerings, etc. Senior executives actually turned to Forrester analysts to advise them on some of these changes.

Cons

It's hard to grow and change at the same time. Management has revised its original expectations while remaining bullish on the company's future. In the meantime, it's a little like swimming across a river after a heavy rain.

Advice to Management

Do exactly what you're doing, and be patient. Focus on repeatable processes and on collaboration. You can achieve operational excellence while still being a people-oriented company.

    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!
