    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Easy access to offices. Really nice people.

    Super stock program.

    Cons

    Salaries oriented toward the middle of pay grades, except for the investment groups
    Top-down, detail-oriented management destroys accountability and initiative in middle and upper management ranks
    Everyone looking over their shoulder -- people just do their job because they value longevity over accomplishment.
    Management says it cares about its people, but doesn't really support that notion through compensation or work environment -- at heart, this is a very cheap firm, if you're not a stockholder.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great "brand name" company, excellent benefits. Walk into the Pratt Street office and you'll see the global headquarters of a very successful firm.

    Cons

    Management is all over the place. Some have been around a very long time and are not well-qualified. There is a mean-spirit to the place -- especially from the female managers. Not sure if it's because they have to be tough to survive, or have never been taught that basic manners and courtesy are appropriate for the workplace. T. Rowe's brand of "mean" can be in your face or very passive-aggressive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer sensitivity training, especially for women going into management positions. Consider anonymous 360-degree reviews so that employees have the opportunity to rate peers and supervisors.

    Pros

    You're constantly learning and you are given opportunities to move up.

    Cons

    Depending on the department you are in, some of the coaches their aren't great coaches at all for the people who need a little bit more time and patience when it came to learning a new worktype. They were impatient, rude, and insensitive.

    Pros

    Top rated mutual funds, opportunity to learn and be connected to the market and broaden your financial knowledge, strong customer focus, pretty good company benefits, great campus and opportunity to get involved in activities if i you want to.

    Cons

    Pay is low, staffing seems to be very tight and is constantly supplemented with associate OT, causing all of us to work more and more as spots are left open longer and longer and or just not filled. Impact to ability to have appropriate work life balance. Less and less development due to this tighter staffing model, as we have to be processing or on the phone. Supervisors and GMs are younger and younger and have less and less experience. Appears to be a shift in what they are looking for or possibly why some are leaving certain areas at a rapid pace. We are losing a lot of talented associates and leaders and backfilling with those with little experience leading. Less experience does not prepare them for what is needed in these roles and the challenges that are presented with an unstaffed work force and changing demands of increased customer expectations. Often, being in a supervisor role for 2 years has not prepared them to support supervisors for difficult customer situations we are seeing and escalating. Historically, I would see supervisors with more years of experience and who had worked in various groups move into these roles. Now, people are being promoted after 1-2 years and it is showing to us associates, as they cannot support us, or their broader leadership team. GMs are not holding supervisors accountable for associate development or engagement. Not sure what they are doing most of the time...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look closer at open positions and the impact it has on those working directly with customers. What is the risk of leaving them open for so long? Also, why are so many people and leaders leaving from certain areas? Why won't good leaders come in and fill open spots? I have been here for some time and am well aware even as an associate what is going on and know we need CEO intervention to help get us back where we were. We used to be a great place to work and people wanted to work a few years back. Please bring us back before everyone leaves. Help!!

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, almost looks like a college campus, well known company, opportunity to meet lots of friends

    Cons

    Pace of work is extremely busy/nonstop, supervisors and managers look exhausted and hardly have energy to coach, leaving critical spots open for extended periods of time has become the norm without consideration of downstream impact, overall disengagement by leadership as a result

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help your leaders lead so they can support their people- fill positions. It has been one after another and its not making anyone better- challenge those leaving them open for so long and find out why- get to the root cause. Its clear to us who doesn't care- hold them accountable and get us off this rollercoaster
