        I worked at Duff & Phelps full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        - Better hours than other banks . That's the only pro. Really. That's it. Believe it.

        Cons

        - The deals / companies you work on are absolute trash. MD's will literally take on any client (I'm talking sub $1M of EBITDA stuff). You and a buddy could start a toilet brush business and two weeks later Duff would take you as a client. - Be prepared to be the smartest person at the company. Junior staff are continually most talented employees here, and the good ones will leave in less than 2 years without fail....

        Advice to Management

        Just spin this off or dissolve it. It will get run into the ground anyway. I don't even know what to say, the banking doesn't even fit in with the rest of the firm at this point. Management has their head in the sand.
