    Pros

    The company offers great work life balance, benefits, stock purchasing, etc. T Rowe Price is growing and understand how important it is to invest in it's people to get the most out of them. You can learn a lot from this company and it's just a great place to work.

    Cons

    Since it isn't a huge company, it can take a little while to advance.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Employees treat each other with a very high degree of respect and sincerity. Firm is large enough for employees to navigate a career track with some degree of flexibility. Supportive of employees' ambition to pursue professional credentials and academic education.

    Cons

    Operational tempo and time it takes to make decisions and implement change is remarkably slow for a company of this stature. Salaries can be lower, but total benefits package is great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move faster from point A to point B.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great conservative company; excellent upper management; generous benefits with 401(k) and good pay. If you are willing to relocate to Maryland, then plenty of advancement opportunities. If not, then very limited. Good corporate culture and just an overall good company to work for.

    Cons

    Willingness to expand jobs in a regional office. Mandatory overtime can be heavy in the "client-facing" departments during certain times of the year and can wear you out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what they are doing from a firm presepective.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Training, campus, pay for licensing, 401k

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low. Associates basically need to live with their parents and managers need a second job to support their families. It is sad. It wouldn't be so bad but you were not expected to work way beyond 40 hours and of course every holiday and weekends. That way you could get another job. Expect your children will be the first in daycare and last picked up and count on paying late fees for keeping them there after close.

    Promotions in some areas only happen within certain groups- basically if you don't go to happy hours you don't have a chance. Talent management is not valued or rewarded. It is about who you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at your senior leaders. Pay people so they can live comfortably. It's not Colorado or Tampa- our salaries are hard to survive on in Md. Promote those who have a proven record of developing others, not those you go to happy hour with and hang out with after work.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    highly invested in your retirement but fully vested after 5 years of service, cafeteria atmosphere is fun and friendly like in college, young workforce

    Cons

    monotonous tasks, micromanaged, company shifts around employees every 6-8 months as "promotions" to keep you from boredom, low pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a personality, most of you are as dry as chalk, and stop acting so afraid. This must stem down from their management.
