    I worked at Forrester full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, good culture, good quality product

    Cons

    Poor progression opportunities, dreadful sales management, unrealistic expectations resulting in a huge loss of staff in 2012,

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate how you reward your longest serving staff, so much good talent left recently due to foolish planning and compensations structures
