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 Management

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

    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    Database is cumbersome to use and outdated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 Management

    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

    Pros

    It is a part of the KornFerry network.
    It has one global database and shares information on client development between regions.

    Cons

    One would think that because Futurestep is part of KornFerry that it would be a class act, think again. Under the leadership in Asia, Futurestep inhales and exhales employees as easily as breathing, and with less thought. at least twice in the past 10 years the company has built out into Asia, then collapsed back again, closing offices and axing over half the workforce at the first sign of a change in the wind.

    Advice to Management

    Change management at the top level in Asia. Get someone with the courage of their convictions and who can lead through a storm, not just save their own job. Someone with the courage to face the people he is axing and tell them, rather than wimp out and send a henchman.
