I have been working at Duff & Phelps

Pros

Duff & Phelps provides an outstanding valuation background for anyone looking to enter valuation, IB, hedge funds, ets. It is a great foundation for a big finance career.

Cons

The hours tend to be crazy as everything is deadline driven and managers often have tighter deadlines than clients.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize that talent and people are your very assets. Analysts who work 50-70 hour weeks deserve more time off.

    I have been working at Duff & Phelps

    Pros

    Work is feast and famine. There is ample opportunity for personal and professional development when project work is scarce. The 'battlefield' nature of project and client work also provides ample opportunity for development of strong peer relationships.

    Cons

    The firm rarely pays out bonus at the % explained during the interview process. Base salaries are on par with market, but bonus numbers lag significantly. The firm also expects tremendous travel and time commitments, often for extended periods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate on par with 'Big Four' and other boutique firms is you expect employees to work comparable hours and travel extensively.
