I have been working at Forrester full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Intelligent and engaging people to work with. Excellent morale in most areas. It is particularly welcoming to the musically inclined. Instruments in the cafe to play with and small band competitions.

Cons

Seems to change strategic focus every other year. Sometimes it feels like change for changes sake. There is a hesitence to speak the truth to senior management.

Advice to Management

Set the bar higher for sweeping changes. The problem is not our internal org structure. If you want to grow the business look at each and every customer interaction and make it valuable and delightful for the customer.

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

    Pros

    Forrester employs some of the best and brightest in research. It is a demanding environment in that you are expected to learn quickly, but once you gain skills and experience, you are given the opportunity to take on more responsibility.

    Cons

    The pace is very fast with not a lot of job training.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more training with competency milestones for employees to hit.
