Team Leader - Service Delivery (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 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.
Very process drivien. Heavy on Admin for Recruiters
Talent Acquisition Consultant (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – April 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.
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.
Human Resources Associate (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 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.
Projects are oversold and there are too many meetings - the work product expectation of recruiters and coordinators is not reasonable. The churn of co-workers and hand-off of work is surprising for a company of their size. As soon as you get comfortable working with a co-worker, it seems they are laid-off.
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 31, 2015
Fast-paced working environment that rewards hard work and fosters a sense of real community in the workplace. Encouraged a culture of egalitarianism and mutual support that made for a loyal and committed staff.
Finance Recruiter (Former Employee) – Addison – February 17, 2015
Your project leader and team leader will lie on you when they are at fault as well as monitor how many times you go to the bathroom or break room. I f you want to work in oppression then this is the place for you.
upper management sucks and will offer you as a sacrificial lamb.
A lot of the good people left for better opportunities. There were serious morale issues, advancement is given to those who had a connection not to those who were deserving. It's a mess, they've lost several accounts.
extremely lax environment
no advancement for hard work, management hires everyone in as contractors with no follow up about fte
Healthcare Research Associate Intern (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 22, 2013
The research team is great to work with, and always open to give support.
Management is happy to help, but must be sought after rigorously for any kind of self-development plan.
The hardest part of the job, is the daily grind of generating names day-in and day-out.
A typical day at work involves showing up early, catching up on phone calls, grinding out name generation for multiple projects, utilizing linkedIn - Google - and Company websites, and calling to verify placements.
free coffee bar, fresh fruit wednesdays, great team to work with
implicit expectations of employees, espoused culture vs. lived
Irony: Proffessional hiring company with no professional ethics
SAP Consultant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles,CA – April 23, 2014
Worked as a consultant for korn ferry. If you are not an employee the treatment is horrible.They let you go by informing in the LAST HOUR. Never worked in such kind of unprofessional environment before and hopefully never again.
bad project financial planning, bad work management, less visibility of project at lower level.
Office/Facilities Manager (Former Employee) – Durango, CO – June 15, 2012
Lore International Institute was purchased by Korn/Ferry, once this happened then we were systematically laid off, so I didn't get a chance to work with them for very long. I had almost 15 yrs. vested in Lore International and I loved working for them. The position I held was very enjoyable because I got to wear many hats and help in all departments. My main jobs included AR/AP duties, ordering supplies, moving employees, programming the phone system to accomodate the moves, answering phones, coordinating with vendors and maintenance people, working in close contact with the HR dept. I can honestly say I loved working with all of the different managers at Lore and every day was a learning experience, I miss it.
I was attracted to the company from client reputation. However, the management and focus has deteriorated within the Futurestep organization as cutting costs is foremost as employees have less and less to do their jobs.
virtual, above average holidays off
poor management, high out of pocket healthcare costs
I'd give this company five stars across the board were it not for political game-playing and middle to upper management so scared about being upstaged by more junior people that they blame all their shortcomings on others.
Associate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 2, 2014
Its a great company to work for. One of the best in their field and the people you get to work with are fantastic and smart. Its a very productive working environment. Main con is the politics in the work place and lack of transparency.
