    Good place to start a career and learn the business. Too much focus on race

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsI started here out of college and have worked both in Owings Mills and in Baltimore. It is a great place to work, especially if you are starting out. Even though it is a big company it really feels like a family and the culture is great.

    ConsThere is a lot of focus on race and ethnicity at this company and it has gotten worse over the last few years. There are efforts to boost the number of minorities with management even admitting that they are willing to go into bidding wars with their competitors for minority job applicants. While I'm sure it is well intentioned, If you are a minority in this company you feel like you are just there because of your skin color. Unfortunately other employees begin to become suspicious that you only got the job because of your skin and otherwise aren't capable. This focus on race is racist and needs to stop. Aside from this it is a good company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the focus on race and ethnicity. We should be hiring people based on how well they will do the job, not to fill a quota. At the end of the day what matters is whether or not the person has good ideas. As MLK famously said, "Judge a man by his character and not by the color of his skin."

    Summer internship

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMost of the coworkers I worked with were friendly and helpful. There is a good attitude among staff. Company made it clear that it was a good place to start a career.

    It is a great company to start a career straight out of College

    Investment Counselor (Current Employee)
    Walnut Creek, CA

    ProsJob stability and great health, 401k, ESOP, profit sharing benefits. It is definitely a team work environment.

    ConsLocations for promotion are limited. Bonus potential is limited as well. The adoption of innovative technology is slow

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be profitable to focus on sales skills versus coaching and micro-managing.

    Excellent company to work for, but Colorado Springs location limits career opportunities.

    Retail Service Associate (Former Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsSupportive team based environment, conservative mutual fund investing education, great benefits package, and basic career advancement opportunities.

    ConsLower to mid level managers promoted the people that didn't threaten them, while competent employees were refused advancement. Career opportunities in Colorado Springs were limited to call center management. If your looking to work for the investment management side of T. Rowe Price, you'll need to work in Baltimore.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the career advancement opportunities available.

    Excellent Company. Great Values.

    Retirement Plan Specialist (Current Employee)
    Owings Mills, MD

    ProsT Rowe really recognizes employee contributions, both in recognition, advancement and pay.

    ConsSometimes managers can play favorites, but i'm sure that occurs everywhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work! I really enjoyed the way you kept associates in the loop on future company goals and plans,

    Conservative, but Stable

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    ProsThis is a great company to work for. Great benefits and a trustworthy staff.

    ConsMovement through the company will SHARPLY differ depending on what site you work at. The opportunities in Baltimore vastly outnumber that which is available in Tampa and Colorado.
