    Great Company; collaborative working environment

    Analyst (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsCollaborative working environment; family friendly, and very livable city to work at in Baltimore. Overall stability of the firm is a major plus, very little volatility, senior level transitions are handled in a thoughtful way, and are telegraphed.

    ConsDepending on the group, promotion potential can be limited. Some parts of the organization can be very flat, so unless your boss leaves, you could be stuck in the same place for 5-10 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Great company, excellent benefits, good pay, but limited career advancement opportunities.

    Investment Operations Associate (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsWillingness 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 Senior ManagementKeep doing what they are doing from a firm presepective.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Conservative, healthy company with the need to promote leaders not project mgrs

    Associate, Individual Contributor (Current Employee)

    ProsExecutives and leadership crave innovative thinkers and are focused on the right directives ....serving clients while remaining operationally nimble and efficient.

    ConsOutside of call centers, mid level people-managers are long timers, promoted for successful project delivery. Unfortunately, they do not have the experience to lead organizational change, translating objectives into actionable goals for their teams. As a result, new ideas are discouraged and teams do not adapt. For associates that have held management roles outside of the company, it is disheartening and may be "years" before your voice is heard or you are promoted in order to make a difference.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHR and high level executives: Look deep within your organizations and consider leaders based on current and past internal & external TRP experience rather than relationships and successful project delivery. Hold mid PLs and VPs accountable for aligning team charter with real tactical measures of success. Soft measures of being T Rowe Nice and "this is how we have always done it" is a corporate culture not a goal. Foster inclusion of new ideas at all levels, that align to the "goals", and through this you will unleash passionate innovative ideas that deliver results.

    Stability and Great Benefits

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStability, Good Benefits, AWA, Great Bonuses

    ConsMild yearly increases, difficult to advance once you get to a certain point.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep talent within the firm by hiring internally. This can be accomplished by mentoring programs to help employees begin preparing for the next steps. Much of Managements focus is on Delivery...somewhere along the way people management fell to the bottom of the priority list.
