    I have been working at Korn Ferry full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Mix of people. Some senior client partners are exceptional people and are very collaborative in their approach, while many mid-level executives are pompous and full of themselves 2. The office space is nice 3. Work is decent. KF's IP is why people join this firm 4. Good bonus if you are a high performer

    Cons

    1. Despite being an HR consulting company the firm's mangement of its internal staff is just awful! The management just wants you to slog with no benefits in return 2. Miserable annual hikes 3. Some membere of senior leaderships are snobbish and think too highly of themselves, just because they are getting business to the firm
