Pros

Duff & Phelps can be a good place to work. The business units do not work closely together though, so if the management in your group is weak, you will suffer.

Cons

Communication is lacking, many senior managing directors have recently moved on to other firms because Duff & Phelps does not put talent retention at the top of it's list.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more proactive about paying your people what they coudl earn in similar positions with other companies rather than assuming they will stay.

    Pros

    Good access to clients who have come to trust D&P employees

    Cons

    Management has no real management experience and only manages to the numbers to satisfy stock analysts - will say anything to get the stock price up so they can cash out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to actually care about the staff instead of yourselves.
