With all due respect, unless you are in Recruiting function, KF is no match to PwC P&O. Do you have an offer from PwC as well?

P&O = OWT now (in very simplistic terms). As someone in OWT, I vote PwC!! 😊

I used to work at Hay Group, which is the HR advisory $500M private consultancy that KF bought. It became appears very quickly that KF leaders were morons and didn’t k ow what they bought. As a result, a lot of good people left and Hay Group consultants were treated as second class citizens because they were not recruiting. I left on good terms and would not go back. However, this was 5 years ago and things may have changed. But if I were you, I would go with PWC.

Most people I know of hated the culture at Korn Ferry. It is not known as a great place to love to work.

My last company got bought by KF a year ago. I left before it went through. The people are not happy. It’s a theme... KF buys a good business with good culture., then transforms it into large “engine” and the people become unhappy. It’s kind of sad.

Agree with P1 - KF is known for recruiting. Not for their Advisory practice. There’s a reason PwC is one of the “Big 4” and KF is known as just a “recruiting agency”.

Korn Ferry is known for their executive search practices, however they do have great relationships with their clients. Also the clients that use them are all big names and established firms. If the role is true advisory, I'd look into it. I know a handful of folks their and they're competent but also paid well. They're a great brand and if they offer you a full time role, I'd take it. Pwc would take you back at a higher salary later if they needed you.

Thanks appreciate your input!

PWC2 I posted a question about this in the big bowl but no one responded. I want to get into assessment and succession planning work but only have MAIOP. Do I have to get a PhD first?

We're thinking of rolling out a weight loss competition company wide as part of our Health and Wellness month. Has anyone done something like this at their company and if so, is there an app that you recommend using? We want to keep people's actual weight loss amount confidential - we would love something that would record their percentage lost instead! Thanks in advance for any tips!

As we prepare for the new school year, just want to wish all of my colleagues good health, strength, clarity, and compassion in all that you do, with abundant reward for your guidance in the positive growth of our young members of society. May calm peace be yours, everyday. Cheers! ❤
