Forrester Life

Passion. Integrity. Respect. Those are just some of the words employees use to describe our culture. We have a sense of humor and a sense of humanity.

“Why have I stayed at Forrester for 15 years? The company has a soul. This is a culture of intellectual curiosity, passion, integrity, and respect. I am surrounded by colleagues who inspire me every day with their intelligence, quality of work, and commitment to do the right thing.”

Through our Forrester Cares program, employees are encouraged and committed to give back to their local communities.

“I’m finding the teamwork and intellectual engagement better than any company I’ve worked for. People will engage you and help you at Forrester. They ask a question and listen for the answer — incredible! And I’ve been in working groups that are downright joyful. The connection between your work and the business outcome feels tangible — there aren’t many days that don’t feel worthwhile. Yes, I’m working hard, but the reward is there.”

Many offices have a FORR Fun committee that organizes social activities and outings unique to their location.

Always teaching, always learning

Always learning, always teaching

We have a hunger for learning and a desire to be challenged.

Dane: It’s impossible for an effective coaching relationship to exist without trust. My trust and confidence in Charlie grows as he continues to exceed our expectations. His performance is a big reason why I feel comfortable giving him more opportunities to achieve.

Charlie: I appreciate how my managers at Forrester always guide me towards projects I’m interested in. I work hard to show them that I’m delivering on my promises. Doing so allows me to grow new skills and be a part of new opportunities. One of Dane’s best qualities is that he cares.

“In-depth interview and training process, hugely positive work environment, impressive coaching. I was drawn to Forrester by its reputation for having an amazing culture; I’ve worked here for less than a year and have not been disappointed.”
