      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.

      Pros

      Salary is ok. Some great sales people and amazing analysts.

      Cons

      This is an American company so forget about any individuality in the UK office. UK sales function is broken due to clear favouritism by management. They are not customer obsessed anymore.

    7. 5.0
      Current Employee, less than 1 year

      Great company with a strong culture

      3 Aug 2020 - Account Manager in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Effectively you run your own business but with great support from management and great sales training people. The recruitment process was clear and really efficient. Tim and the recruitment team were prompt and very supportive in answering every question I had. I got a great sense of competency and hard work from the senior management on the panels I went through and this has indeed proven to be the case in the role. Forrester makes you feel like you will be challenged and supported and demonstrates a great company culture and ethic. You are also working for a highly reputable company with a great standing in the industry.

      Cons

      On-boarding is quite long, and getting to grips with the products and everything the role entails takes time, but it makes sense as there are not really many comparable company's. You are also very well-supported throughout the entire process.

      Pros

      Working with very smart people, things have been positively changing in the past 2 years and a strong feeling of belonging throughout the company.

      Cons

      Nothing out of the ordinary and can be hard to change some processes when selling.

      A great place to work.

      Pros

      A great company that has handled itself impeccably through a tough 2020, Leadership is open, honest and transparent. A company that understands and respects its employees needs.

      Cons

      The offerings are complex and how it works with clients is extremely diverse , that's not a con. But it can take time to truly understand this complexity, which can be over powering to some new hires especially early career professionals.

      A hiring process reflective of the inclusive, collaborative and efficient organisational culture

      19 Aug 2020 - Employee Experience Associate in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Efficient hiring process enabling you to meet many relevant people who give you a great taste of the organisational culture. A speedy (although meticulous) and very friendly process. During the interview stages, the recruiter always ensured all my questions were answered and I was never left long without news, which is also the case now that I am in my role. Great leadership across the business.

      Cons

      I cannot think of any cons at this stage.
