    I have been working at Forrester full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing Culture
    Tremendous Focus on Employee Experience
    Innovative Mindset Throughout the Organization
    Transparency Among Leadership and Colleagues
    Intelligent and Thoughtful Colleagues
    Challenging the Norm is Promoted and Expected
    Respectful and Professional Environment

    Cons

    Sometimes the rush to be innovative can cause some inefficiencies, but the company is generally very self-aware of its areas for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Excellent work...this is the best culture I've experienced after 10+ years at various companies in multiple industries.

    Assistant Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Forrester (Sydney) in January 2019.

    Interview

    So far I have only been screened by a HR representative, after being referred for AC role. The call took about 30min and was fairly standard. They proceeded by sending me an email summarising what was discussed over the phone, which I found very helpful in terms of getting a good idea of what the company does and their ability to follow up. I have since then been scheduled to have a "tentative interview" over the phone with the recruitment manager, which should one of 3 phone interviews. If successful I should receive a case study that I will have to present in person at the Sydney Forrester office.
