I have been working at Duff & Phelps

Pros

- smart and motivated colleagues
- wide variety of work, which keeps things interesting
- good starting point for a career
- generally friendly employees who want to help each other (non-competitive)

Cons

- "silo" structure of office creates tension btwn offices/groups
- exec management claims comp is on par with competition but no word on who these "comps" are (I.e. Big 4, management consulting firms, i-banks, other valuation firms, etc?)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- increase transparency of decisions to employees
- spend some time fully thinking out decisions that affect entire firm (e.g. recent branding efforts)

    Many changes in management not clear about the direction of the company. Communication poor and often no communication. Alot of turn-over and non consistancy.

    I have been working at Duff & Phelps

    Pros

    The work life balance is good most of the time as long as you are in the right office. The local managers are good and coworkers are smart and capable.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't care about employee input. Overall, raises and bonuses do not match the industry. There is no management reward for helping staff develop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that local management is graded on how well they develop staff. Stop spending so much time worrying about the earnings each quarter and instead focus on strategies to make our product more attractive in the long-term
