    Colleagues and senior management are great and easy to work with. The work is interesting and somewhat challenging.

    Middle management is incompetent, lazy, and extremely frustrating to work with. It creates an unpleasant work environment. Most colleagues are resentful of middle management.

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

    Pros

    Intelligent colleagues who cared about more than just getting ahead. We worked together to get the job done and hopefully enjoy the experience. Support from office management was generally strong.

    Cons

    Management relied almost solely on billable hours to determine bonuses and raises, which overlooks quality and deters innovation. The executive team appeared not to care much for their staff, we were treated like cogs.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the annual review process to include more metrics. Billable hours do not solely determine productivity, and provide more Practice Development support for new VPs.
