    Pros

    Great benefits, professional and friendly culture, room for growth. Professional and self-development is important to leadership. Great place to start your career. Great training programs.

    Cons

    Low Salary. I think it is sad they are an investment firm that teach about the importance of out pacing inflation and annual merit increases are lower than 3%. You can not out pace inflation by staying in a position for longer than a year. You have to move around the company to have a significant salary increase. This makes it hard for leadership because of the turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will need to increase annual merit increases if you want to retain talent.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Really nice people, generous vacation time and very understanding when personal issues arise.
    They have given me a great and challenging project because I have the right skills, behaviors and history. Have not pushed back at all.

    Cons

    Politics abound. Other groups try to stall resources and projects. Names of divisions change constantly so this adds to confusion. A bit of Nation-Building going on, as best that can happen in a small mid/size company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some Standard Operation Models in place and stick to them. Have patience, it takes awhile for them to settle in. Nothing is perfect at first, so give it time and trust your teams.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and a great way to learn the business. If you are looking for a company to sponsor you for your licenses and 'learn the ropes' this a good company to work for. You have a very core role at first but can expand and advance as you see fit. You can go from basic customer service to dealing with more high value clients to sales.

    Cons

    Compensation within sales is less than you could make with competing firms. If you work in the investor centers you get great face to face experience with clients, but the pay that you get here is not as good as most firms. The sales positions are not 'cut throat' and your pay is not really impacted by sales numbers. Many top performers tend to leave the company for higher paying competitors, but I would definitely suggest T. Rowe as a place to get experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what your competitors pay and remain competitive. Also, there needs to be more focus placed on brokerage since mutual funds are not being replaced by ETFs.
