    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very 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 Management

    Create 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.

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

    Pros

    *Great training *fun, smart coworkers *some clients can be pretty funny *teaches you valuable life skills

    Cons

    *tattling is rewarded--this creates a very toxic work environment where people set up other people for failure *pay is okay, we've lost a lot of good people to competitors *constant micro-management *management plans poorly and consistently underplans their employment, making other departments "loan" out their employees to other departments *once management doesn't like you, you're outta luck *technology is outdated and constantly failing, putting pressure on phone reps *lots of mandatory OT

    Advice to Management

    Employees are people! You should encourage a collaborative environment, rather than a toxic work environment. People dread coming to work and people who speak up are punished. There are a lot of competitors who are fighting to steal your well trained employees. Treat us like we're also assets under your management and you'll have a better ROI. Also, reward the people who deserve to be rewarded, including those people who have tenure. It seems like supervisors have no backbone and refuse to fight for their employees. Again, there's a lot of competitors coming in the financial services industry, so many people are leaving because of this.

    Pros

    Professional environment, good place to work straight out college. Good stepping stone for other jobs.

    Cons

    The pay is way below what other companies pay. Lots of micro management and unnecessary meetings. Training is very below average, if it all

    Advice to Management

    Be more hands on

    Pros

    Great place to get started. They pay for you to get your FINRA licenses.

    Cons

    Little opportunity for upward mobility unless you are willing to move to Baltimore first. Promotions are not always based on ability as much as how much the managers like you. IN Tampa most managers have been in those positions for quite some time so for you to move up someone has got to leave their position first.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, company match, profit sharing, professional work environment

    Cons

    Excessive overtime, expect to work most holidays, lack of support from upper management, no clear direction, work life balance not important or supported, supervisors not important- focus on associates and not leaders

    Advice to Management

    Look closely with high turnover, why are people leaving. Why are leaders no longer inspired? Why don't they want to follow? Is it the organization's leader? Change is important and needed. We need someone who cares about their people and can inspire us!!

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk

    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 Management

    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.
