"I have been at Forrester for almost 2 years now. Forrester is the kind of company where I feel that I actually have a voice in meetings, my ideas are being brought to life as I am just starting my career. The work like balance is great, I get to work from home 1 day a week! I am surrounded by thought leaders and dedicated managers. If you get a job offer from Forrester, accept it!"

"I've worked at Forrester Research for 3 years. I started my career at Forrester right out of school and have learned so much. I have been offered career advancements, salary increases, and get to work with some of the best and brightest in the Market Research industry. Benefits are great, all eligible employees get to work from home one day per week! I highly recommend Forrester to any job seeker."

"Forrester is consistently a great company to work for. There are tons of high-caliber employees that are great to rub shoulders with. On top of that, they have given me a chance to really expand my horizons and tackle difficult international challenges that I would not have been available to me in other positions.

What do you like about working at Forrester Research?

"Pretty lax on policies about working from home and on time off."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you're looking to get into research, start in research. If you're looking to get into sales, start in sales. It is VERY difficult to move horizontally despite what the recruiters tell you."

What don't you like about working at Forrester Research?

"It is nearly impossible to progress adequately through the company because there is no defined career track. Ambition and skill are not rewarded - there is a lot of hiring based on relationships rather than performance."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would be a lot more transparent and look for insights from employees rather than just tell them the plan and make them execute on ridiculous goals."
