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

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay, office spaces. Really work to build culture and involvement within company. If you're just starting out in business it's perfect. Same for having a "resume builder"

    Cons

    The business seems to be at a crossroads. There's growth opportunity, but little in the way of development once you get it in. Everything feels political. There's little in the way of taking care of RPO vs the money poured into search. No one seems to think long term with this company as everyone who is in higher management is focused on the next big account.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to developing your talent.

    Pros

    This is a very progressive, forward thinking company with lots of opportunities to learn & grow. Also promotes diversity & a team-oriented corporate culture.

    Cons

    Newer employees might feel a bit lost & takes a bit of time to get on track but people here are so helpful so don't be afraid to ask for help!

    Advice to Management

    Improve on onboarding; providing an ambassador to new joiners might help.

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

    Pros

    World class brand name with innovative products and seemingly limitless resources/systems/data. Attracts great talent to the door initially. Global market leader.

    Cons

    Absolutely no corporate culture, impossible to integrate as a newcomer, employees are not valued or treated well. Seems like the company is in over its head. You aren't done working after you make the sale.

    Advice to Management

    Use the data you have to make decisions. Train your leaders and managers. Tell employees they are doing a good job because so many of them are doing just that. Don't buy into your elite brand name. It's not that good inside. Very disorganized, wing it attitudes all the time.

    I worked at Korn Ferry Futurestep full-time

    Pros

    flex time, and the location

    Cons

    if you take this job be prepared to work with people who are not qualified, overbearing. You will be worked to the bone the work life balance is non-existent. Team members/other employees will throw you under the bus at the drop of dime or to make themselves look good. Insane amount of nepotism, promotions and raises are few and far in between unless you know the right people. pay does not equal the work

    Advice to Management

    stop promoting based on who knows who instead of qualifications . Treat your employees with respect and stop allowing favorites to get away with being disrespectful to other employees

    Pros

    I have been in the business a long time and the thing folks complain about are things that occur in every company. This is a great company that really takes care of the people. I see it every day. There is a real potential for growth...and I am not just saying that. I am on weekly calls talking about internals first for every role we have open. I have also been able to promote many members of my team to new opportunities. If you work hard, there is a place for you. Great perks as well!

    Cons

    Can't think of any. As mentioned above, the things that folks complain about happen everywhere. Yes you will work hard; yes, there will be ebbs and flows in the business and there might be some changes in staff; no, our leadership isn't perfect (but close!) but I do believe they support us and have our best interest at heart.
