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

Pros

Though only four months in, it is so evident that collaboration, curiosity, and integrity are engraned in the Forrester culture. The training programs are in-depth and beneficial, and the transparency of the executive team is outstanding (and rare!) I feel empowered to grow not just in my current role, but within the company long-term.

Cons

Understandably so, it takes quite some time to fully grasp Forrester's solutions. They are complex! Pairing this knowledge along with the strategies and challenges of our clients is not immediately intuitive. If you are a quick learner, know that there will be a bit of a curve -- but that's all part of the fun.

Advice to Management

Through training, I've enjoyed connecting with employees and departments that I do not normally interact with. I'd love to have more formal opportunities -- trainings, events, workshops -- to do so.

    I worked at Forrester full-time

    Pros

    Everyone I worked with was highly intelligent and hardworking. The management was transparent. We had quarterly company meetings where we could ask any question and got detailed information about our financials.

    Cons

    The pay was somewhat low and most research associates left after a year or two. It was hard to break into research teams and become analyst with credibility.
