    I worked at Duff & Phelps full-time

    Pros

    You get a lot of good experience and get to work with smart people. Modelling experience is close to comparable to IB. Ability to deal with detailed financials is also big plus

    Cons

    Expect to work a lot and not get paid that much. You are graded on an hours billed but you will often have times in which you will work all night and not be able to bill hours

    Advice to Management

    Pay better if you want to keep people rather than having all your good people leave after a year. Houlihan pays more at the associate level than you pay at the VP level

    I worked at Duff & Phelps full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good entry-level company, I gained valuable experience in my 3.5 years at Duff and Phelps.

    Cons

    Middle management is full of idiots. Upper management does not listen to employees. There is no path for successful career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to baseline employees regarding process improvement.

    Pros

    Dynamic leaders within the transfer pricing group who care about the career development of team members. Staff members are given excellent opportunities from the day they walk in the door.

    Cons

    From conversations with employees of the Big 4, it seems as though the responsibilities of staff members at D&P are much greater. This additional responsibility is excellent for learning and career growth, however it does not come with any additional compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue thinking forward and compensate top performers.
