Pros

Duff has a much more relaxed work environment than many other middle market and bulge bracket investment banks. There is no face time requirement at the company. If work is completely on time and in an efficient and high quality manner, there is no expectation that people will stay until the most senior person leaves the office.

Cons

The company has limited name recognition which may be a detriment to resumes. Many people associate Duff with accounting related services and do not realize that investment banking is even a service we offer. Additionally, compensation could be more in line with other middle market investment banks in order to recruit the best talent possible.

Advice to Management

Segregate the investment banking group from the rest of the business

    Pros

    Decent salary, good bonus if you work like a slave. The company isn't bad overall but the work can be harsh.

    Cons

    Never knowing when you'll get to go home. Unpredicatability of the workload from work to work or even day to day.

    Advice to Management

    Respect employee's downtime more. Less late night/ early morning and weekend emails, sometimes I want to throw my blackberry in the ocean.

    Pros

    Tremendous upward mobility, fun working environment, helpful senior management. In any consulting environment, I call the progression to Managing Director/Partner a guantlet. Its a tough road to the top, but once their I think its a very nice lifestyle...most senior MD's pull down $500k+, and barely crack a 40 hr work week.

    Cons

    Long hours, small bonus, pay discrepancy between MBA/undergrad at senior associate level

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on -
