    I have been working at Duff & Phelps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, work can be interesting. People are generally helpful and are things aren't super competitive. Fun office events every now and then.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of consulting, hours can be long. Work can be repetitive at times. Compensation good / ok, but not necessarily when considering hours worked


  2. "Enjoyed time, not into valuation"

    Pros

    Working at Duff and Phelps was great for me to learn the basics of valuation and how professionals in the field are approaching pricing complex and nontraditional assets.

    Cons

    I particularly hate the valuation field and I would much rather be doing something involving using the actual purpose of valuation, i.e. investment banking or other investment services but I can't blame them for that

    Advice to Management

    Move into different areas in the field and expand basic offerings beyond what's already extended to clients. The firm is obviously strong at the current level but I would love to see some growth

    Pros

    Decent salary, good bonus if you work like a slave. The company isn't bad overall but the work can be harsh.

    Cons

    Never knowing when you'll get to go home. Unpredicatability of the workload from work to work or even day to day.

    Advice to Management

    Respect employee's downtime more. Less late night/ early morning and weekend emails, sometimes I want to throw my blackberry in the ocean.
