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

    Pros

    - Work/life balance is good
    - Pay is not bad but could be better, but who doesn't feel that way.
    - Work with very smart and talented people.
    - Opportunity to work at other locations
    - Ultimately it is what you make it! And also the division you work in.
    - You are given the opportunity to work with Directors and MD's, but it's not to take for granted. You need to ask questions and show interest, then you'll start to make an impression.
    - Weekly meditation is something to look forward to depending on your workload.

    Cons

    - Analysts do have get stuck with the grunt work, which is expected.
    - They don't pay for parking which is a little less than ideal depending where you are located.
    - Pay could be better
    - More PTO wouldn't hurt

    I worked at Duff & Phelps full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly easy to adapt to the work environment. The workload is very manageable and rewards those who wish to be entrepreneurs of their own experience. Collaborative work environment with few barriers between Managing Directors and Analysts.

    Cons

    Compliance and regulation can be a dry and monotonous subject matter. Analysts are often left with the lion's share of mundane tasks and are selectively looped into higher level projects.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to centralize group practices and policies. Group organization is key in communicating stability within the team.
