    I worked at Korn Ferry full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everyone here is super professional, respectful, and cool to work with. It is a simple business model - they have 3 main businesses Korn/Ferry exec search / futurestep / and LTC - consulting. As long as you do your work well, you will be rewarded. The environment is not overly political and not too much drama.

    Cons

    Corporate continues to cut benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus on business growth and finding new service lines.
