    I worked at Forrester full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has a great reputation that they need to live up to. Good benefits. Sharp analysts, but their availability is limited. Health benefits are excellent, as is vacation and holidays, but there is not enough time to take vacation.

    Cons

    No work life balance in sales. Revenue has been decreasing so the pressure on sales is amazing with constant updates. Pay is low for the industry. High turnover in sales and analysts for a reason.

    Advice to Management

    Time for the founder with his outdated ideas to retire.

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

    Pros

    Great place to start career

    Cons

    Absolutely zero training in core competences.
    Culture that encourages analysts (the core business) to be primadonnas
    An amateur HR department
    Below market pay

    Advice to Management

    Hire from the outside for senior mgmt.
    Middle mgmt should be restructured to be more than a buffer and overhead
