Current Employee - Director in New York, NY

I have been working at Duff & Phelps full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Duff & Phelps is a growing business with several service lines that are, or are shortly posed to be, the market leader. The firm still thinks of itself as a mid-market investment banking firm, but the reality is that it can provide financial advisory in a multitude of areas, most of which are growing rapidly. It's very nice never to worry about job security

Cons

Duff is less prestigious than a big investment bank, and they pay is going to be lower at most levels below Managing Director. The banking group still dominates the firm, but the real value to the firm lies outside of M&A.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of compensation groups within service lines, so that people can bring in business into any service line.

    Pros

    I worked very hard, spent many hours in the office with tight deadlines... but in the end I wouldn't be where I am without my time at Duff. I am incredibly grateful for my experience and would recommend it to anyone looking to tee-up a rewarding career in finance.

    Cons

    Lots of hours, but if you get the hours it means you are good. Just push through it!
