I have been working at Futurestep

Pros

- Variety of mandates
- Good boss
-Great Brand

Cons

-Pathetic pay
-Some seniors are pathetic
-Favoritism towards certain non-performers
-no clarity on credit distribution.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please introspect and change your way of work.
There is no clarity whether we are a poor-mans-Korn/Ferry ( Single Search) or a full fledged RPO.
I think we are a great brand with a great future but with poor business planning.

    Pros

    Transparency of strategy. A very diverse product offering which means financial stability. Many opportunities to engage with senior leaderhship, regionally and globally. Not a perfect training or onboarding system, but Futurestep is investing heavily to bring a world class talent management system in, so that our training and initiation process will become second to none. Recently there have been several very senior hires globally, which shows FS is investing at the top and bringing some world class operators in to the picture. I think futurestep is well set up for the next stage - remembering that as a company it's only 10 years old... not many other players can say they got to this stage, worts and all, in just 1 decade.

    Cons

    Process and systems need to be improved. There is a new global CEO (no longer Bob McNabb) who has 4 global initiatives to get these tasks underway. He's a very strong process operator, with an impressive background, so I can only see this improving. As a business we don't advertise much - need to get out there more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, communicating, and investing in initiatives. We can only hire dynamic people who are comfortable with change - as a result, we'll have a world class outfit.

    I have been working at Futurestep

    Pros

    Being attached to the Korn Ferry brand name is good at the senior levels
    Split desk model - BD done by mgmt team so recruiters can focus on one side of the equation
    Paid salary instead of draw/commission

    Cons

    Noone has heard of Futurestep - constantly mistaken for Futureshop. At the mid-level, most people haven't heard of Korn Ferry
    Mgmt doesn't always bring recruiters to client site, so information for a search is often delivered second hand
    Database is cumbersome to use and outdated
    Research support poor
    Competition between Korn-Ferry and Futurestep for roles when the market started to decline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in training and technology for sourcers and recruiters
    Don't be so quick to cut support staff when times are tough - morale suffers and as a result, everyone ends up looking for new opportunities when the market improves
