    I have been working at Duff & Phelps full-time

    Pros

    Dynamic leaders within the transfer pricing group who care about the career development of team members. Staff members are given excellent opportunities from the day they walk in the door.

    Cons

    From conversations with employees of the Big 4, it seems as though the responsibilities of staff members at D&P are much greater. This additional responsibility is excellent for learning and career growth, however it does not come with any additional compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue thinking forward and compensate top performers.

    Pros

    Offices (located in Shard)
    Most of the team are approachable and friendly
    Interesting to gain an insight into different businesses operating in different industries

    Cons

    - Salary and career progression is very limited if you joined as a graduate
    - A lot of grads join "just to get qualified", which doesn't reflect well in the team dynamic
    - There is a dog-eat-dog feel to the role, and people like to make a big deal if you actually leave on time (Its restructuring not banking!)

    Advice to Management

    - Increase the salary (£24k is well below industry standard)
    - Start distributing bonuses beyond the partners
    - Perhaps start trying to create a 'career' feel to the job, as all graduates are there to get qualified

    Pros

    Good work environment. Lots of friendly people. Company was flexible with start / end date of internship. Fast interview process. Definitely was kept busy during entire internship.

    Cons

    Some of the work can be boring at times. As an intern it is understandable to be assigned less meaningful work however only enjoyed some of the projects I worked on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep interns busy with meaningful work. Wish I had more mentorship during internship process. Make interns feel like their work is needed for the success of the company.
