I worked at Korn Ferry

Pros

The brand is famous and it really helps to do some business. Most of the employees have great background and it is really nice to work on projects. K/F had also a good ability to be innovative.

Cons

It is a companye where the management is weak. In a crisis period it causes lots of problem to adapt to the new situation. Unfortunately due to that the company had to laid-off drasticly, even more than most of its competitors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to focus on a more mid-term strategy than reacting too quickly. Have a more defined strategic guideline between the different services, especially between Futurestep and Executive Search.
