    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time

    Pros

    This is a really terrific place to work. Wonderful company. Good pay, great benefits, great team.

    Cons

    In all of my time at this company, I don't have a negative thing to post about them. Fair treatment of employees.

    Advice to Management

    The management in my group was strong, very good on communicating issues / changes. Overall, a good place to work.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Great benefits. You could make the median salary in the US for your entire 35 year career and still end up living upper-class in your retirement. -Stock purchase program is great--boosts your assets. -Industry giant, well known. -Great culture

    Cons

    -Management is average at best. If you're not front office, the work isn't the most challenging. -Slow advancement. -Low SALARY compared to peers. -Pittance of a yearly bonus and meh raises.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps boost underlying salary. Allow for greater outside the box thinking. Adapt to different styles. For CLevel management, diversify FI offerings and get into the ETF game and get in proper.

    Pros

    Got to do actual associate work everyday. T Rowe has a great work culture - everyone is willing to help you and teach you anything you need to become successful.

    Cons

    Didn't really have time to meet other interns. Also, we didn't really have that many events where we could get to know more individuals within T Rowe.

    Advice to Management

    Have more intern activities

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time

    Pros

    Job security, good benefits, and good people. Great for recent graduates and anyone looking to start their career. Very conscious of employees needs and work life balance.

    Cons

    Not always progressive enough with technological advances. Career progression is self driven, many departments do not focus on employee development.

    Advice to Management

    Hire young people, be open to change, roll out new technology sooner, and invest in the education of existing employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits, knowledgeable investment personnel, work/life balance, reasonable cost of living in Baltimore (as opposed to NY, CHI, or SF). Reasonable vacation policies

    Cons

    It can be a slow-moving organization at times with a focus of being overly conservative in every aspect of the business. Very little interaction between departments

    Advice to Management

    Better communication between various levels of the organization is necessary to develop and retain top talent. People need to feel like there are opportunities for growth outside of their group.

    Pros

    Work life balance , collaborative culture, hiring more leadership from outside the firm to increase overall diversity of thought and inclusion. Comfortable working conditions

    Year over year salary increases are below average, many leaders grew up in the company so lacks external perspective and experiences.

    Continued focus on diversity and inclusion and offer more competitive salaries to attract and retain talent
