    I have been working at Korn Ferry Futurestep full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Korn Ferry FutureStep has a great reputation and works with some of the most reputable companies. This affords employees many career opportunities.

    Cons

    Lack of support for remote employees, performance reviews have little meaning, Average benefits, average pay. Could be more communicative.

    Advice to Management

    Because so many employees work remotely or on client site, I would advise more knowledge sharing and a better website for candidates to access remotely using a personal computer.

    Pros

    Vacation time and flexibility to leave for appointments. People within teams can be great to work with.

    Cons

    This company has constantly screwed me over and I know that I am not the only one. They are constantly taking advantage of employees who work hard and not rewarding them while some employees just get lucky by being on the right team and knowing the right people. Communication is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending like everything is great and start looking at why the turnover is so high and seeing that employees are not happy. When employees leave replace them instead of giving more work to the current employees. Stop overselling to clients. Explain how promotions work, give performance reviews to all employees.

    Pros

    Some locations have the option to work remote.

    Cons

    pay is low, merit it next to none they only reward executives while the people doing all the work do not get rewarded. You can get an exceeded expectations and they will not give you an increase. It is obvious the top 2% reap all of the benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for performance don't brag about how great the company is doing and you don't reward your high performers.

    I worked at Korn Ferry Futurestep full-time

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits were competitive for the industry.

    Cons

    Great opportunity for those who are looking to get into the recruiting field but no place to create longevity/or to grow. This place is a SWEAT SHOP! Management does not care about employees. It's all about the number and you are a number. Please believe that. There is also a high turn over. No ones stays... only long enough to find their next recruitment opportunity. Steer clear unless you are desperate.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a learning & development program (courses) for management and for those that are looking to grow within the management/company. You are slotting individual in management roles with no solid experience and with poor communication skills when delivering, addressing and speak to employees. Slavery days are over!!! Beware before you are slap with a discrimination lawsuit or visited by the EEOC again. As there has been many cases involving this organization. Create a culture (teams) organization that truly cares about their teams (employee).

    Pros

    This is a great recruiting opportunity for someone right out of college. Not an experienced recruiter.

    Cons

    Work life balance not the same across all clients. They allow some to work remote but not everyone. They do not reward employees. No merit increases. You have no say of what account you work on. They move you around like a ping pong and you have no choice.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. Reward with annual performance reviews and increases. Pay equity needs to be reviewed.

    Pros

    Growing company that has recently taken on new big clients

    Cons

    There is a big disconnect between upper leadership and those that actually work with our clients. They will continue to move people to new roles within a short amount of time which has a negative impact on our teams and the clients. They do a poor job at recognizing and understanding who puts in the work. They do a terrible job at pre-planning for attrition which causes some of us, like myself, to continue to manage numerous jobs at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay attention to what is currently going on with each account, and just because we have had an account established for many years does not mean that we should stop paying attention.
