  6. "Forrester Loosing its charm"

    I have been working at Forrester full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Earlier it was fantastic company. Great work life balance. Freedom to work in your style and manager was only concerned about the end result.

    Cons

    few of the Managers will ask to complete 9 Hrs in the office. So its giving the feeling that we are working in a Factory where LABOR need to spend 8 or 9 hrs on the machine. The things are changing in Forrester. people should be treated as Professional where emphasis should be on deliverable rather than spending 9 hours in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Need to implement 360 degree feedback rather than 180 Degree. Because Boss is always not right.

    Pros

    It's a privilege to work with incredibly talented, hard-working, and passionate colleagues every day. A very healthy working culture that accounts the work life balance of employees. One of the very few organisations where constant dialogues flow either ways.

    Cons

    Nothing that comes to my mind

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower your employees

    Global Company, with a lot of emphasis on people. It's a privilege to work with incredibly talented, hard-working, and passionate colleagues every day. I've grown a great deal, both professionally and personally in my 5 yrs with Forrester and still counting. I'm proud to call myself a Forresterite.

    Being HQ out off US, I miss on the fun and the time that I would love to spend with my global colleagues.
