I have been working at Forrester full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very interesting work. Great opportunity to learn about technology and marketing trends.

Cons

While changing environment can be exciting, Forrester changes for change sake. We have a bunch on middle managers that have been able to stop growth of the company for five year. Yet, they are still in their positions.

Advice to Management

Clean out middle management especially if they have been there for more than five years. Company "guys and woman" have failed this company for too long.

    I have been working at Forrester full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, smart people, work/life balance respected above all. Sales people are treated respectfully. You will learn so much, it will position you for success whether you stay or leave to pursue your career elsewhere. Benefits are fantastic!

    Cons

    Pay is on the low side within the industry. If you are in sales, it's luck of the draw as to whether or not you will get a set of profitable accounts. Not very proactive in terms of content and product training. Must be a self-starter, no hand holding.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking on too much too soon. Geo alignment for sales is recommended to foster better client relationships.
