    Pros

    Good insurance, positive work environment and management.

    Cons

    Lower than average industry salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check up on employees to see if their interests have changed. Once you have shown interest in something they won't let you change your mind,

    Current Employee - 401k Specialist in Colorado Springs, CO

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

    Pros

    Growth potential is available in spades. Typically begin as a call center environment and move around from there. Plenty of opportunities to learn. Great benefits package.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be an issue during busy seasons as overtime is dictated by the market conditions. Different ideas by managers in same department can lead to confusion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel like there should be more time directed to bettering the work-life balance, especially during peak seasons. (i.e. beginning of year, tax season, RMD).

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price

    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 a 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.
