    I have been working at Duff & Phelps full-time

    Pros

    - High exposure - Great perks - Good brand name - Top management is brilliant

    Cons

    - Toxic work environment, very much of a dog eat dog culture - Long hours and almost always working over capacity - No work life balance - Some managers deal with subordinates just awfully - Although exam fees are paid, no further support is provided and analysts rarely are able to attend lectures or study due to long hours

    "Avoid at all costs"

    I worked at Duff & Phelps

    Pros

    Honestly don't have any. I have tried. I guess the notebooks are of a reasonable quality. There is nothing else.

    Cons

    MDs exhibiting bullying behaviour go unpunished. Staff are encouraged to not communicate. If you are proactive, this will be used against you.

    Advice to Management

    This would be proactive so no advice to give, other than simply to say - stop bullying your staff.
