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

Pros

Duff & Phelps combines the resources of a bulge-bracket institution with the entrepreneurial spirit of a boutique firm. D&P encourages staff to invest in building a personal network and to be active outside of the office.

Cons

Duff & Phelps has grown considerably over the last few years and is still in the process of digesting and molding all of its divisions to best serve clients - this has caused minor disruptions in day-to-day operations, but nothing major.

Advice to Management

Purchase better coffee

    Pros

    - Great Culture. The culture in the Los Angeles office is amazing. As an experienced investment banker I found that the managers and head of the office actually care about your life and do not treat you a like a disposable resource that they can utilize until you fizzle out.
    - Consistent Deal Flow. The directors and managing directors are seasoned veterans that bring in substantial deal flow and can execute transactions efficiently and consistently.
    - Solid Training and Ample Resources. Duff & Phelps has the resources of a bulge bracket investment bank and dedicates a lot of time and money to training employees.

    Cons

    - Limited Junior Staffing. While the company tends to invest a lot of money in each employee, it also limits the number of analysts that it can hire. The analysts get a lot of experience that they normally would not get until they were in their second or third year at other firms, but the investment banking junior staff is consistently very busy.
    - No free Red Bull or Nespresso (yes, a very Wall Street problem...)

    Advice to Management

    None. The corporate strategy has been excellent and I hope the growth continues under Carlyle.
