    Pros

    Benefits, the campus and its facilities.

    Cons

    Very compartmentalized, small amount of brown and black people, must play they game just to be given greater responsibilities. Group think, ultra conservative!!! $BB company ran like a mom and pop shop

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity and Inclusion are one of the companies key principles, please remember that! Place value in different ideas and opposing opinions.

    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.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, job security is high, people are nice, perks ok

    pay is horrible, positive reinforcement isnt always there, they promote on being nice and not what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your lower level managers and associates better and you can retain the employees that are worth keeping and not the ones who the employees worth keeping get out of trouble

    Pros

    Awesome benefits.
    After 4 yrs you get 3 weeks of vacation.
    It's a fun place to work if you don't have a micro manager breathing down your neck.
    Beautiful view of either the airport or downtown Tampa.
    Company has a gym on the first floor and gives you $250/yr for a gym membership.
    They hire genuinely good people who are nice to be around. It's a very safe work environment.

    Cons

    The company loves to promote people who are incompetent. If you know a lot, you're see as a threat. They'd like some Certain people are "fast tracked" for no apparent reason. The one nice thing is, if you're a woman or a minority...they love that. If you're not you better learn to kiss up. It's not uncommon for a supervisor to be overseeing a department they've never ever worked in. You don't need to know anything to lead - I believe that's EDGE's motto. You have to work one weekend day a month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so slow to hire. In doing so, people are promoted who aren't ready. This then hurts the company as a whole.
