      Good Employee Experience and Development Opportunities.

      Pros

      Employees are well respected and career development is a big theme. Plenty of women in leadership roles also, which is great to see. Pay is fair and benefits are pretty standard.

      Cons

      Not much in terms of work socials, but this is mostly down to the pandemic.

      Pros

      Nothing good to say about them. Don’t care about their employees and will do anything to hide their dodgy management

      Cons

      Everything! The management is appalling, HR are useless and will not help in any situation so beware. Not inclusive whatsoever

      A company who values it's employees

      Dec 22, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It's a great, open and straightforward company, who cares massively about it's people! It's somewhat a small company numbers wise, in comparison to where i've come from, so you are valued as a person. The ability to work from home and to do so whenever you want (post covid) is excellent.

      Cons

      Missing some benefits that others would provide. Depending on your background it's quite difficult to pick up the terminologies and how the business runs.

      Pros

      In-depth training of products, strong eco-system support, inclusive & collaborative environment, strong management support, fast paced, full support of work/life balance, opportunity to grow.

      Big workload which requires a strong structured approach. Headquarters in US so more US focused.

      Inspiring

      Aug 13, 2021 - Research Director 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Forrester has given me scope to learn, grow, try new things, and in a decade of working here I'm still being challenged and supported by my leaders and my team. We get to work with the brightest people, the best clients and make a genuine impact every day.

      Cons

      As a non-US employee its sometimes tough to work out what long-term senior career progression looks like. There's a head office gravity that's hard to avoid in any company, but in the last couple of years this has improved as we've focused more on growing the "international" (i.e. Not USA) business. I am hopeful. Gender and sexual orientation diversity is awesome. Ethnic diversity is less so, though in the European and APAC divisions we have a massive range of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds. The issue is more obvious in Boston.

      Pros

      Yearly trip away for Sales Kickoff
