    I have been working at Forrester full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with some of the smartest minds in the technology industry as well as having C level execs from top Fortune 500 companies as your clients. Autonomy, freedom a big company ethic with a small company mindset and a pretty happy company culture. Average tenure is high with hundreds of folk across departments having been with the company for 10+ years. A hugely respected name to build your own personal brand around. George Colony is a fabulous, inspirational CEO but could be more involved with spending time getting to know with his teams outside of head office in Cambridge, USA.

    Cons

    Too US-centric at time although big strides are being made and the board have finally realized the importance of EMEA and APAC. Too many radical changes introduced in 2012 for the teams to keep up with which resulted in loss of potential earnings from sales and an unusual spike in attrition. A penny pinching attitude at times to save a few thousand dollars when the real cost of losing great people runs into the hundreds of thousands in lost revenue, hiring and training.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time listening to the people on the ground and in the trenches. Not just in vast open forums, but each member of the board should once a month take a small group representing a cross section of departments and seniority for a few drinks or dinner and really talk. Each Exec could take a table of 10 out for dinner once a month and within a year, everyone in the company would get to spend some quality one on one time with a Director and have a voice. Genuis. To introduce a bit more fun as everyone that works at Forrester is deeply commited, so some down time to get to know each other works wonders.
