    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
