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

    Pros

    The company's response this year in the face of a pandemic and recession has been nothing short of textbook. The Executive Team has been clear and transparent about the steps the company is making to ensure the physical and mental health of employees and the fiscal health of the company. Everyone is working from home, but in many ways our culture has never been stronger as the personal and professional blend together and we know each other more intimately than ever before. The people here are incredibly smart, generous, and kind. People want to do the right thing. Bring your "A game" because the standards for quality, integrity, and customer service are high. I learn something nearly every day from colleagues way smarter than I am. My immediate teammates and my manager are the most inspiring group of colleagues I've ever had.

    Cons

    Current events have highlighted the need for the company to be more progressive in the area of flexible work. The current flexible work policy is the option to work one day a week at home. The company needs to rethink its entire approach to flex work while honoring its strong culture of collaboration and learning. There's a productive and even exciting path forward that blends the best of the home experience and the office experience, but we need to be bold in our thinking. I hope we don't take the safe route.

    I have been working at Forrester

    Pros

    What really amazed me beyond all the goodness that Forrester has is its global employee centric approach. The last few weeks have been stressful for all with the COVID situation & I must appreciate the Executive leadership, CPO & her team for their tireless efforts for staying connected to the Global workforce with a clear & transparent communication. Employee first approach makes Forrester a favourite. This not only motivates employees to push through during these business unusual times, but to commit themselves to the success of Forrester's clients.

    Cons

    None I could think of.
