Thoughts on Korn Ferry? A recruiter reached out and honestly I have never heard of them. I’m currently at a Big 4.

Reached out for what? To get you to work for them, or to discuss an opportunity they are working on? It’s a legit shop. I don’t normally talk to recruiters but for them I’ll make an exception.

They’re a top notch exec recruiting firm. Other areas like culture, talent, and org consulting is good but not at the same level of impact an MBB or really good Big 4 practice would have

I’ve heard of them prior to D, it’s honestly a big step down. Even below Mercer / Gartner

Are any of the big 4 firms seen below one another? Or is it more McKinsey=Bain=Bcg > D=EY=pwc=kpmg? Purely talking in terms of prestige. Not sure if that’s even true for MBB but I’ve always wondered if “not all big 4 firms are created equal”
