Former Employee - Vice President in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

Some smart people. Good benefits.

Cons

Unpredictive hours. Some MDs are good, like Chicago and Boston. Some are not very good, like San Francisco and New York. Be prepared for urgent tasks at 7pm, while MD had all day to give it to you.
No team work, people do their own thing without any communication.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to retain people, you must do a better job.

    Pros

    job security - if you are horrible, they will never fire you. you can lie on your timecard and no one will care as long as they can pass along your hours to their clients.

    Cons

    bonuses are horrible and so is total comp relative to competitors. They are more interested in getting fees from clients that doing good work. If you are a good worker, you will constantly be asked to pick up the slack from other, bad workers but you will not be compensated for it and they will never be fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so greedy. If you want to retain and keep good talent you have to show the good talent that you care, both by career advancement opportunities and better pay than the less motivated or capable staff. Stop rewarding slackers that never show up and lie on their timecards.
