I have been working at Forrester Research

Pros

Growth, challenge, networking, client base

Cons

Individual performance is diluted by the fact that goals are heavily team performance impacted, and the 'matrix' concept is a tremendous dis-incentive.,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Growth in the past 4 years has outpaced management's progress in evolving the resourcing and performance measurement criteria. The leadership needs to upgrade and update their thinking.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. The people are very smart and the work is very engaging. Senior management has a solid foundation and direction of where they would like to take the company.

    Cons

    I don't really have too many complaints about working at Forrester Research. I have had some stressful days due to workload but not because I didn't like where I was going to work.

    If you want to push people hard, then you need to share more of the wealth with them.
