At client site: negative/punitive atmosphere, lack of professionalism, no collaboration with on-site client

Former Employee - Senior Recruiter in Los Angeles, CA

I worked at Futurestep full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Direct deposit - yes it's that bad, no pro's

Cons

Lack of leadership at Client site, no teamwork, no upward mobility, recruiting leads are punitive at best, manage by backstabbing and holding recruiters accountable for metrics using outdated system; expected much more from a KornFerry product.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a realistic view of leadership at client sites in Burbank and ask yourself why turnover is so high, morale is so low and recruiter jobs go unfulfilled for months.

    Pros

    As a resume enhancer, it helps to have the Korn/Ferry name attached to your career. Otherwise, there isn't much else.

    Cons

    Lack of overall management skill. Management sometimes has little or no experience in any form of retained recruiting. Real strategic insight and visionary thinking was pushed out the door for sub par management candidates. A healthy portion are recruited by senior executives who run into people in random places (ex: waiting for a plane in the airport). Decisions such as this did little to increase company moral. Nor did decision to eliminate all bonus payouts, regardless of employment contract agreements with the company. Of course, CEO failed to mention he would continue to take his $500k annual bonus (thank you SEC filings for this). Many Project Managers have little experience in managing projects or clients, which leads to constant issues. Furthermore when projects hit a bump in the road, they offer no strategic insight to move forward. They simple demand you complete the agreed upon contract with no offer of a solution. Describing the head of RPO is not worth wasting my energy on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Futurestep is a classic example of a company that found success inspite of itself and failed to recognize needed changes in management and methodology as the market and the economy evolved. Purhaps if management spent less time concerned with protecting themselves and spent more time and energy on making the company a better place to work, Futurestep would have weathered the storm better. Purhaps Mr. Newman would be better suited to execute change and initiative. Being a good CEO means more than seeking companies to partner with and obtain. When was the last time you spent anytime learning what you business does from top to bottom?
