Not the company for me
Director (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MA17 July 2018
Forrester has some very good qualities. Many people have been happy there for years. However, in my experience, they don't practice what they preach (at least not in most departments) and there is some very shady behavior that is allowed by upper management. It's basically a company run by old white men who have a hard time changing the way they think. They even changed their tagline to "Challenge thinking. Lead change." and yet, they don't like their thinking to be challenged unless it comes with an immediate and press-worthy increase in their bottom line. Their HR ("EX") department does very little to resolve reported cases of mistreatment; instead they push it back on you to figure it out yourself. It's okay to throw other people under the bus to get ahead. That's not cool with me.
Pros
Free coffee, ping pong table, foosball, cafe and gym onsite, competitive pay, good benefits
Cons
Misalignment of values with actual conduct, unattainable annual goals, absolutely no budget for new tech even though that's what they claim to be critical for clients.
