Not a Great Experience
Senior Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXFebruary 16, 2017
Company has no clear cut promotion structure. The management team is made up of people who care more about their commission than the clients or the employees.
Pros
Work/Life Balance
Cons
No room for professional growth. Management's honesty and integrity is questionable at best.

Fun people to work with/no room for advancement
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Boston, MADecember 18, 2016
The only con about working here is that corporate is cheap and they don't like to promote. Other than that it's a great place to work and the people are great. This is a fast paced environment.
Pros
work outings, 3 weeks vacation for starters
Cons
expensive health insurance, no room for advancement

Good if you are Sr. Management
Human Resources Associate (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 22, 2016
Your life must be put on hold for their objectives. Very little advancement if you are not the chosen ones. Does not match on a yearly basis 401K. Management is very harsh unless you click. Benefits are not great.

My Review
Senior Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLApril 28, 2016
I think that Korn Ferry is a great company, if you are interested in Executive Search. Their training is second to none, and the Managers are the best. It is not the place a person from Talent Acquisition should go, unless it's more of a business development role.

Good Company
Team Leader - Service Delivery (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 19, 2016
Average day for those that plan ahead
Get to know the real decision makers with the company and stay close to them
Management is management - a little to much micro
Coworkers are great and good people
Hardest part is navigating ambiguity and seeing clearly the direction you should take with little to no information or guidance
Satisfying clients and getting great talent good opportunities for their career movement forward.
Pros
good company, smart people, crafty
Cons
micromanagement, little career growth from within

Very process drivien. Heavy on Admin for Recruiters
Talent Acquisition Consultant (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXApril 5, 2016
I was farmed out to an RPO for corporate recruiting. The company prior to us was let go due to some short comings. We had to come in as experts. We were not to ask questions of our RPO as to not seem incompetent. Very little direction was given as to how to handle hiring managers other than to pretend to know every thing.
Pros
reputation
Cons
no room for diversity
