Health Care Analyst (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – October 23, 2013
The Hay Group Office in Arlington, Virginia has a very professional environment and a friendly staff. My co-workers and supervisor were enjoyable to work with and challenged me regularly to continue improving. The support system was strong and the Arlington office was closely connected with its counterparts. The office and the work content was very secure and in a convenient location. I connected with colleagues and remain connected with several co-workers. My experience with Hay Group encouraged continued professional growth and prepared me for my future career.
Professional Office Environment, Actuarial Exam Support
This is a sweatshop where you’re unappreciated and forced to work long long hours for the client. Management over promises, they don’t have really smart people running the company and overall it’s just a joke. Micromanaging, gossiping, lies, fake people, this place is pure garbage.
No communication. No Training. No support. I would not recommend Korn Ferry. They treat people with no regard or respect. They do not align folks with their expertise. I owner my own agency for 16 years small nothing to compare to Korn Ferry I treated people with respect. I was very surprised by the way the RPO was run.
They are notorious for making promises they cannot keep to get you onboard and continue to do that the tenure of your employment. Overall support is lacking from management, little professional growth and development for those that do not sit at a KF site. They do not appreciate their employees who work hard and do not do well with client relations. They are all about the money instead of service and honesty.
flexible work schedule
poor management, leadership and employee engagement
Strict culture with a lot of opportunity to learn about the business world
Associate (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 2, 2018
Korn Ferry is a well respected executive search and talent management consultancy firm with a lot of valuable tradition and strong client base. The growth of the leadership, talent management, and compensation consulting sector of the business is a very interesting side of the business and business model. Executive search business segment is, top-to-bottom, a well respected section with a very professional culture.

Overall, none yet. The hardest part is trying to elevate our systems and standards to that which we elevate our clients to. Some expect that we would be best-in-class on all things Human Capital, but that is tough and something we are working on.
I was honored to have worked there for 18 years & the people/work culture is first-rate
Data Integrity Analyst (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 16, 2018
Korn Ferry International is the world's #1 executive research firm. Thought the compensation is not always ideal as it was dictated by the ebb and flow of the economy, A typical day at Korn Ferry is fast paced & my workload is usually heavy. But because I worked under a well-structured & protective management that allows me the freedom to finish at my own pace because they have complete trust that I can always deliver the results that I'm responsible for.
Multi-faceted organization in terms of both business initiatives and employee experience
Director, Talent Analytics Solutions (Former Employee) – Century City, CA – June 4, 2018
Korn Ferry is very much like the fable of the blind men and the elephant. Your experience depends very much on which part of the company you touch and when. For example, up until my very last day, Korn Ferry was without question the best job I've ever held, based on opportunities for advancing the company's goals, continual challenges to think on your feet, a collegial culture, work-life balance and professional development. On the other hand, there are times and places where it could be quite cut-throat. So it really depends. My departure from the company was bittersweet. Nevertheless, I am unhesitatingly grateful for the years of opportunities and support KF accorded me. And also the lifelong friendships I continue to enjoy with former colleagues.
