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

    Pros

    Some flexibility to work at home but this is becoming increasingly difficult as they pressure analysts to be based out of an office. Forrester has recently bolstered its consulting support for analysts which creates more time for research. I get to write what I want, when I want, or at least for the most part. My direct manager is wonderful. The work is HARD and demanding. You need to be very motivated and proactive to be successful here. If you are, it is very rewarding and a positive work environment. Your calendar will be packed. Managing this will be huge to being successful. Willingness to collaborate with others is dependent on teams, whether people are meeting their goals, and the specific analysts.

    Cons

    Getting harder and harder to access our data and produce good research. Moving from an RA to an analyst is a tough but rewarding path. Unfortunately you are put on a lower salary path than if you've come in from outside. If you've worked your way up from being an RA, you likely will need to leave after a year or two of being an analyst/senior analyst. Luckily that's a good jump start for your career. There's a lot of travel, but if you've got a popular coverage area you can largely dictate if and when you travel (this is a pro and a con). Analysts with smaller or less popular coverage areas likely will need to travel a lot when it comes and also travel for a lot of unpaid events to get business. There's little reward for going above and beyond goals. This job requires diverse skill sets. You'll need to be able to write in the Forrester style, become an expert in a coverage area, be a strong speaker, be organized, and be able to pitch projects and advisory. Failure to do any of these could make it hard to meet your goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people more that you've spent the time and effort developing, or we'll leave.
    I love the move towards more metrics. Goals for the next quarter should be set in the first two weeks of the quarter. NOT after the quarter is already over. Nothing disgruntles an employee more than unfair goals getting pushed on them after the quarter is already over.
