    I have been working at Duff & Phelps full-time (less than a year)


    I switched from a very large company as a Senior Financial Analyst to Duff & Phelps last year. The learning curve is STEEP but I enjoy the collaboration, teaching atmosphere, and flexibility.


    Periodically there are late, late, late nights! Weekends are not off limits, especially during peak periods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should improve how it recognizes their employees for their achievements, and develop a comprehensive talent development program. However, my opinion may be colored from my previous position, where my former company excelled in these areas.
