Duff and Phelps was a toxic place to work due to lack of MD's care to help those below them.

I worked at Duff & Phelps

Pros

Access to projects
If you are a associate you will have tremendous responsibility because the folks hire up won't be there for input.

Cons

Company culture changed when it went public from valuation firm to accounting firm.
MD's who were not smart enough to carry their own weight or bring in decent business.
MD's looked out only for themselves when company went public
Company suffered when they change income generation from Associates with MBA's from top schools to Associates barely out of college with no experience.
No diversity.

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Nice working environment active management. Employees given responsibilitie and tools to succeed but no guidence on how to obtain next level.

    Cons

    Promotions given out popularity contest. Too many managers and not enough workers. Understaffed and under appreciated. Hours and work life would be better if the staff was beefed up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less Managers and more workers. To many people want to be the boss and not enough actually doing the work.

    Pros

    most people below the MD level are very nice and good to work with. If you need a job badly and don't care about worklife balance or compensation, they will love you.

    Cons

    Many MD's treat you like you are easily replaceable and that you should work at their beckon call. You will work a lot of weekends and be paid like someone who doesn't. The stock price is down for a reason. They can not hire good talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people and you won't have the turnover issues you are dealing with. Don't hire your friends to lead groups. Actually, do a real search.
