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)

    Pros

    Great client base. Many opportunities to learn and stretch for greater responsibility. Collegial environment in most cases. Generally personable and grounded co-workers.

    Cons

    Under-developed performance review culture. At times little cooperation at senior levels of management due to individual interests. Hours can at times be long. Bonus compensation often viewed as average or below average. Culture across cities can often by very different. Public company status can result in management overly focusing on short-term results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resist the urge to focus on short-term results and focus on most effective ways to increase shareholder value in the long term. Closely scrutinize and review compensation practices.
