I had a positive experience with local management, but it wasn't the right job for me.

I worked at Duff & Phelps full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Intelligent colleagues who cared about more than just getting ahead. We worked together to get the job done and hopefully enjoy the experience. Support from office management was generally strong.

Cons

Management relied almost solely on billable hours to determine bonuses and raises, which overlooks quality and deters innovation. The executive team appeared not to care much for their staff, we were treated like cogs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve the annual review process to include more metrics. Billable hours do not solely determine productivity, and provide more Practice Development support for new VPs.

    Pros

    Great firm to work for, really takes care of their employees. Great benefits, bonus and work life balance. Lots of room for growth and availability to work on all types of projects. Overall a strong team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Like many fin services firms changes in upper management can completely change how the company cares for its employees. After Duff went public the atmosphere changed completely as did the benefits. You went from feeling like a member of a team to being just another number and also replaceable. Not a very healthy atmosphere.
