I have been working at Duff & Phelps

Pros

- smart and motivated colleagues
- wide variety of work, which keeps things interesting
- good starting point for a career
- generally friendly employees who want to help each other (non-competitive)

Cons

- "silo" structure of office creates tension btwn offices/groups
- exec management claims comp is on par with competition but no word on who these "comps" are (I.e. Big 4, management consulting firms, i-banks, other valuation firms, etc?)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- increase transparency of decisions to employees
- spend some time fully thinking out decisions that affect entire firm (e.g. recent branding efforts)

    I worked at Duff & Phelps

    Pros

    Offers a good experience and is a great resume builder. They offer good benefits and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Management kept lots of changes a secret. If you weren't a favorite you didn't get fair treatment. Our city leader was very unapproachable. Long hours without any recognition. No concern for employees work loads. Senior management has no interaction with staff. They make changes that directly affect the staff without their input.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with staff, not against them. Management leads by intimidation. Management says they want open communication, but they do not want to hear anything that they disagree with.

    Pros

    Smart, intelligent, and hard working professionals, not in senior management, but Directors and below. Large company benefits but not much opportunity.

    Cons

    Senior management needs to decide how to construct a company that provides a balanced set of services to clients while advancing the smart and intelligent people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to provide a clear brand message in the market place. Most people don't know D&P or what it does very clearly.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
