Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Duff & Phelps (mehr als ein Jahr)
Nice teams, international culture (you can easilly work from an office in another part of the world), interesting cleint coverage, amazing projects, paid dinners, week-end and late night taxi expenses covered
International culture (you can be forced to work from an office in another part of the world or fired if you say no); pay is low, provided working hours; some people don't act professionally (e.g. some VPs(!!!!) don't know how to calculate an index, certain conclusions on debt repayment capacities could be questionable, finally, I wouldn't trust any research produced by VAS on transaction multiples); the company is too much American, meaning that a lot of valuation methodologies suit good the American accounting standards, but are meaningless under IFRS, and it seems that the company isn't interested to adopt another views that may better suit its non-american clients' needs.
Rat an das Management
1) Even if you are very successful in the US, it doesn't mean you should concentrate yourself ONLY on this market the growth can come outside of it, let colleagues from other parts of the world share their experience, and encorage them to stay in the company in order not to lose this international experience - let them be promoted at least, if you're not comfortable with pay rise.
2) PLEASE, forget this rural 20th century culture of people who just got access to printers and internet, and in order to show off, Started To Write Every, My Lord, Word With A Capital Letter. Why? Because This Looks As Strange As The Sentence As I Am Writing Right Now. And If It Were Only A Title With Two Words, It Could Be OK, But That Is Usually Not The Case. It looks really rural, obsolete, silly, even pathetic and it becomes very often difficult to read. Say good bye to The Capital Letters Club, that's all, please.
Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2017 bei Duff & Phelps (Frankfurt (Deutschland)).
3-4 hours, 6 candidates competed for one intern position.
Round 1: Numerical, verbal and logical tests, each with about 25 questions and the candidate has to finish them within 20-25 minutes.
Round 2: The manager talked to everyone together. He introduced about the company, the businesses, the intern position, the working content and asked almost everyone at least one question.
Round 3: Separate interviews. Each candidate was interviewed by 2-3 colleagues of the company. This progress lasted about 1 hour 20 minutes.
