Approves of CEO

I have been working at Forrester full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Working for this during the pandemic has opened my eyes to how a company should operate with their employees - open and honest . It's been great!

Cons

Some roles are limited to how far they can progress - slightly frustrating when you don't want to leave to progress your career.

    Research Associate Interview

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Forrester (United States)

    Interview

    Forrester contacted me via one of there senior recruiters Kristina. I had a great time interviewing with all the members of the team that I would work for.

    The interview process consisted of:
    - a screening interview with the recruiter
    -a phone interview with the Hiring manager
    - a quick assessment to follow
    -another follow up interview with the Hiring Manager
    -then an interview with the team (usually 3 hours long), will usually focus on behavioral questions

    Forrester's whole process was professional and courteous. And having a dedicated recruiter made a difficult series of successive interviews easier.

    The whole cast at Forrester was one of the most dedicated and passionate employees I have seen. From senior managers to new professionals. I thoroughly enjoyed the process.
