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

    Pros

    no micromanagement, trust in staff, big company to work for, plenty progression opportunities, good salaries

    Cons

    there is a hot desking policy in the office, as staff are allowed to work from home a couple of days a week, so sometimes the office is extremely busy and quiet at other times.

    EA Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Korn Ferry in March 2020.

    Interview

    Tel chat. Not quite sure why I was shortlisted for the call. It wasn't the same job I had applied for so; 1. wasted my time firing up my tablet to have said role viewable during; 2. this was only disclosed to me when I was asked how long I had worked in the finance sector for... then it was mentioned that I probably didn't hold the 'finance industry' background length of time the hiring manager would presumably want, so I queried where that was stipulated on the job spec'... only to learn the call was for another EA role (not Exec Search, rather Finance).

    The one I applied for didn't state that I needed 'Exec Search' experience either, hence the reason I applied was because I hold all of the criteria they stipulated.

    So, in effect I hold neither length of time in said industries - which they could have deduced from my clear, concise, effectively formatted for ease of reading... resume'.

    Interview Questions

    • Seems like a waste of my time and I don't hold hope of being shortlisted for an actual interview, or getting updated about the application progress (for the role I didn't even apply for).   1 Answer
