    This once-glamorous role is in transition

    Apr 21, 2022 - Senior Research Analyst in Denver, CO

    Pros

    Opportunity to conduct amazing research and weird enormous influence in the your industry. Opportunity to do this while working from anywhere.

    Cons

    Benefits are so-so. If you come from the vendor space, you'll take a significant paycut. This used to be somewhat compensated for by a lavish lifestyle, but the job is changing now, most engagements are virtual, and a lot of analysts are leaving. The analyst of the future might be more of an introvert, happy to sit in ivory home office.

    Pros

    There are smart and kind people.

    Cons

    Working at forrester has to be one of the most frustrating moments in my career. Many individuals make the move to forrester to grow their sales career, the brand reputation, the challenge. However, the CONSTANT product changes, the lack of urgency internally to accomplish anything, and the lack of career growth opportunities is concerning. Multiple times there have been external hires who are not qualified for a position who end up being hired. Extremely frustrating for anyone whose been loyal to the firm and yet not considered for a promotion. Salaries are way too low. Employees are constantly poached and tempted to look at other employers given the low salaries. It’s defeating and such a shame.

    Working with many experts in a given field, being involved in the research via interviews, secondary research, and writing, plenty of opportunities to learn about various different areas/technologies.
