    Trickle-down economics for the majority of associates at this outstanding money management firm

    Current Employee - Vice President in Baltimore, MD

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

    Pros

    A decent package of benefits, an outstanding investment management firm, a bullet-proof reputation, tidy and attractive balance sheet, pro-client and pro-stockholder.

    Cons

    Most associates are on lease as short-term assets/long-term liabilities, does not encourage ownership except for a few select insiders, ultra-secretive regarding compensation, 'culture' can be passive-aggressive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat more associates as owners and reward those who do good as you reward yourselves, and they will give the firm and their clients better ROI. Be more transparent, and respect the relative intelligence of your workforce. Live up to your well-earned reputation Internally, and transcend to become truly the most prized and appreciated investment management firm in the world.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price

    Pros

    - The benefits are good - but with a recent change in health plans, have gotten much more expensive for a lower level in health care.

    Cons

    - Lower take-home pay from any other financial institution or regulatory agency in the area that I know of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For those looking to move upward, help lay out a plan for your associates, new or old, in milestones they can achieve in order to be in the best position possible to move up along the ladder - right now, there isn't enough of it.
