Products and services and highly respected in the industry

Dramatic increase in interest from the market in working here

Some legacy employees still affected by past two years of underperformance

Advice to Management

Keep making changes that are based on input from clients and field personnel versus the boardroom.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Very smart people that work hard for the client. Sales people are under intense pressure and the company says they look after the clients interests however when quarter end rolls around its all about closing the deal.

    Cons

    Tough business model, senior management is struggling to find right combination of solutions/products, if you are not from Cambridge then you will be a second class citizen. San Francisco employees and other locations are not treated as well. There is a Cambridge centric thought pattern and also very clubby if you are in Cambridge

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees for once
