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

Pros

Supportive coworkers always take time out of their day to help you. The training program is also very helpful to new analysts

Cons

Monotonous, boring work. The firm lacks the fast paced environment that other financial service firms have to offer.

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

    Pros

    Pay is better than at the Big 4, especially since higher level employees receive stock options and restricted stock.

    Cons

    Public company issues are prevalent. Also, a large portion of the firm is valuation, which is more of a commodity than some other value-added services.

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

    Pros

    Colleagues and senior management were generally pleasant to work with, respectful, and made the workplace enjoyable. Slightly better work-life balance than other companies in financial services.

    Cons

    Long hours and below-market-rate pay, both pre- and post-recession. Several rounds of layoffs during the recession decreased employee morale. Management was sometimes overly demanding but is expected at most companies. Limited exit opportunities compared with other firms.

    Advice to Management

    Better treatment of junior staff. Top heavy organization that needed to be reversed.
