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

    Pros

    Great work life balance. They hire enough help to get the workload done...many 40 hour flat work weeks. Great place to start any commercial RE career path.

    Cons

    If you're cool with being an appraiser, there's really no cons. Many just leave for investment firms. I would imagine this is one of the highest $/hr entry level commercial RE jobs out there.

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

    Pros

    I worked very hard, spent many hours in the office with tight deadlines... but in the end I wouldn't be where I am without my time at Duff. I am incredibly grateful for my experience and would recommend it to anyone looking to tee-up a rewarding career in finance.

    Cons

    Lots of hours, but if you get the hours it means you are good. Just push through it!

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

    Pros

    Duff & Phelps combines the resources of a bulge-bracket institution with the entrepreneurial spirit of a boutique firm. D&P encourages staff to invest in building a personal network and to be active outside of the office.

    Cons

    Duff & Phelps has grown considerably over the last few years and is still in the process of digesting and molding all of its divisions to best serve clients - this has caused minor disruptions in day-to-day operations, but nothing major.

    Advice to Management
