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

    Pros

    Really flexible schedule, home office, great leadership. The office environment allows for integration and participation. It is located near downtown and it is very accessible

    Cons

    The office looks a bit crowded, not really much to complain about. Rumor has it that salaries are a bit under the average in the area. Attrition has risen because of that

    I worked at Korn Ferry Futurestep full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good medical benefits- That was the only positive about this company. Over promise and under deliver- This is an accurate statement for this company.

    Cons

    Everything besides the medical benefits were terrible. I would challenge any recruiter or talent acquisition manager considering this company to take a closer look.

    Advice to Management

    None that I haven’t already expressed

    Pros

    great clients, MC role is excellent. great colleagues.

    Cons

    no merit based increases, discussion around comp is brushed off.

    Advice to Management

    when your CEO sends a company-wide email saying there will be more transparency around compensation and merit-based increases, follow through

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, many holidays and vacation days off.

    Cons

    Compensation is not ideal. There is not a lot of career growth unless you kiss the higher management butt. Management sucks, do not care if you leave or not.

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

    Pros

    It's a job and it pays pretty well

    Cons

    Slave mentality, unrealistic expectations, promises to both clients and employees that are never delivered on. No resources and have to work 12 hours a day. No clarity surrounding promotions. Promised merit increases that weren't delivered on. The company has gone downhill fast and no one cares. The leaders in charge are just there for a money grab and that's it. They have children leading this organization with a lack of maturity and who could not care less about their employees.

    Pros

    Great teammates and strong brand in the market. Also, ok vacation policy and leave policy.

    Cons

    Everything you can imagine for not being a good place to work. Definitely a slave mentality among leadership.

    Besides they could careless to read these comments. So point made.

    Advice to Management

    Read, listen and respond to what your employees (not leaders) are saying. The comments on here are REAL and are being read by potential candidates for KF and our clients. We get candidate rejections all the time based on the reviews on here; and leadership, HR and management still refuses to do anything about.

    Pros

    Salaries are at or above industry standards depending on experience. Solid Time Off Policy. Recruiting Teams are collaborative and positive to work with for the most part.

    Cons

    Internal movement is almost impossible. If you are good at what you do supporting one of their clients, you will be stuck in that role. Communication between Program Directors and employees as to changes/updates to the team and/or account is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your people. You can be successful in the service/consulting industry with out bending over to client leadership constantly.

    Great colleagues and bright leadership.

    Cons

    Layoffs, sales commitment not in step with operations ability to deliver, dedication to in house technology solutions that do not adequately solve real world recruitment issues . Raises weren't given during the three years I worked here.
