Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Korn Ferry full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You can spend a lot of money for NOTHING

Cons

It's all just a dog and pony show. Smaller search frims offer better service, results and much better pricing

Advice to Management

Get back to basics. The Barbie Dolls in New York are MONSTERS. The Devil wears Prada?

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Korn Ferry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great brand, great people, satisfying work. A differentiated platform that integrates excellent assessment tools in the search process.

    Cons

    Bean counters run the firm without taking a long term view about how to retain the most talented people.

    Advice to Management

    Remember big billers aren't always the best leaders. Use information technology to improve efficiency and quality, not only as a marketing tool. Stop investing in low margin leadership consulting. Excess cash sitting on the balance sheet does not create shareholder value.
