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 Management

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.
