A good place to be part of the team for a few years
Director (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 6, 2018
Executive management is good with buying key targets for inorganic growth. Some of the MDs are great and a pleasure to work with. Management needs to think about long term careers for the employees and work on retaining them.
Vice President, Dispute Consulting (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 20, 2018
It depends on who you work for and my experience was poor. I tried to adapt to my manager's style and do whatever I could but he seemed to be a very negative person with a large ego (he said it himself). He is no longer with the company so hopefully your experience is better now.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 19, 2018
Homogenous co-workers, almost non-existent company culture. Benefits are in the range of average to above-average. Management is non-transparent and short-term focused obsessed with only cutting costs and telling people how things are going well and then next minute laying off workforce.
office snacks, good healthcare plans, 401K matching
Valuation Analyst (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – September 17, 2018
Almost no work life balance due to a large amount of travel. Almost no opportunities for knowledge or career advancement. I was promised the opportunity to manage projects within 6 months of starting, but was never allowed to do so.

Senior Associate, Real Estate Advisory Group (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 26, 2018
I would work there again under the right conditions. Good pay and benefits. The colleagues and coworkers are good, for the most part. I was very fond of my teammates/coworkers, as well as my immediate bosses.
Good pay and benefits. There are pluses working for a large corporation
Valuation Analyst (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – March 19, 2018
Great workplace in general with good, smart people. Expect ebb and flow just like any other work, just dependent on deal flow. Make no mistake, this is a large company, and has the pros and cons inherent therein.
Company in new building, good neighborhood. Pleasant w work space.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – East Palo Alto, CA – March 12, 2018
The office management became very structured. There really wasn't a typical day. Sometimes very hectic, you worked late, other days 8-5 more relaxed. Very busy office. Casual office culture. The hardest part of the job was trying to finish a project when new ones came in. The casualness of managers.
If you like to be intellectually challenged and work within a great environment then this is for you. I loved the culture, I liked the people I worked with for the most part. The management team is pretty cool. Really great company with great benefits.
Dinners usually taken care of if you work late, great benefits
Admin/Ntl.Mktg.Graphic Support (Former Employee) – Morristown, NJ – January 4, 2018
My typical day at D&P was excited to come into work each day and manage my projects within the given timelines. I was able to focus and concentrate on my job with a friendly and productive atmosphere. The culture was A+ and the management was fair to all employees.I would love to continue my career at D&P!
I always new what each day would bring. I was happy with management and it was an overall good experience. I would look at contracts and other legal documents every day and input important information from those documents into an Excel sheet.
Director (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 22, 2017
The most unhappy people in the world, pressure to bill time, terrible managers, horrible culture, management spying on employees, back-biting and people going to HR at the drop of a hat, you cannot say a word without someone getting offended, tons of paperwork, no bonuses, the list of negatives goes on forever.
No advancement, high turnover, bad managers, unhappy people
