Campus College style work environment, monotonous tasks

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Owings Mills, MD

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

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

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Nice people, no opportunities for career development

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time for more than a year

ProsGood salary and benefits, nice people, nice office facilities (the sort of thing you take for granted until you go to work somewhere with much older computers etc).

ConsNo career development opportunities - people who 'play the game' and spend more of their time brown-nosing than actually working or managing get promoted, while other internal candidates who have worked at the company for years are put through massive hoops (20 plus interviews for an internal promotion) and then passed over. NB - I am not referring to myself. Also, the organisational structure and the way my department operated meant there were no opportunities for career development and in fact the job wasn't even how it was advertised when I applied for it so I ended up working here for a couple of years and very quickly finding I was disappointed and stagnating. But for people who are in the right sort of teams with the opportunity for career advancement - or you have the sort of personality that means you will get ahead regardless - it is a good company to work for.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at organisational structures and career development opportunities or you will continue losing staff

Nice people, but not very effective

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsGood reputation as an investment management company.

ConsMost employees have been there a very long time and do not have experience outside the company. While that can be good to maintain "culture", it can also be stagnating and cliquish. Outside thoughts and experience are not always well-received or appreciated.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the legacy employees who got to where they are because of the length of time they have been employed, not their performance. Those who think it is all about being "nice" are just allowing under-performers to keep their jobs and are not meeting the company's objectives.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Decent Company Overall but a few downfalls

RETIREMENT PLAN COORDINATOR (Current Employee)
Owings Mills, MD

I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat 401k, ESOP, fun events, You learn a lot about conducting business in the corporate world.

ConsVery high stress levels and high levels of accountability with low pay, LOTS of favoritism, Lots of cliques, No real advancement opportunities just lateral moves between departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate career ladders and do what it takes to assist the employees in growing and climbing their ladder. Stop promoting based on favorite pics or cliques and promote based on work performance alone.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
