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

Pros

job security - if you are horrible, they will never fire you. you can lie on your timecard and no one will care as long as they can pass along your hours to their clients.

Cons

bonuses are horrible and so is total comp relative to competitors. They are more interested in getting fees from clients that doing good work. If you are a good worker, you will constantly be asked to pick up the slack from other, bad workers but you will not be compensated for it and they will never be fired.

Advice to Management

Stop being so greedy. If you want to retain and keep good talent you have to show the good talent that you care, both by career advancement opportunities and better pay than the less motivated or capable staff. Stop rewarding slackers that never show up and lie on their timecards.

    I have been working at Duff & Phelps full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are the best thing about the company which being that the company is a consulting firm, is no real big surprise. The work is also very interesting and helps lay a great foundation of technical skills.

    Cons

    The organization is a little siloed and when chasing new deals, there seems to be a lot of angst about helping peers. This is almost detrimental to the ability to land new jobs. The compensation plan of management encourages this behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on removing the silos and foster a culture that encoruages working intra and inter divisions.
