    A very solid, well-run company, but the contact center locations come with some downside.

    Pros

    The upper management at T. Rowe Price is phenomenal. Very intelligent and mature leadership, and the corporate culture is top notch. It's a company that anyone would be proud to work for. Salaries are fair, but the benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    The contact center locations (Tampa, FL and Colorado Springs, CO) have limited opportunity for career development. While they're much more professional than other contact centers, they still come with the same drawbacks of other contact centers.

    Current Employee - Supervisor in Owings Mills, MD
    Current Employee - Supervisor in Owings Mills, MD

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

    Pros

    Good network of people. Met a lot of my friends here. There are a lot of management programs and trainings one can take advantage of. Well known and respected company. We are truly dedicated to our clients and have the best in mind for them. Strong company values.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours, positions across the board stay open for extended periods of time making it hard to supervisor our teams and run the business. Specifically management roles. Associate roles are tolerable, but supervisor and general manager roles need to be filled instantly due to their direct impact and interaction in the day to day and with the associates. Supervisor and management roles can be pretty stressful due to concept of doing more with less which adds more and more to everyone's plates as more initiatives are added with nothing ever removed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire appropriately, at all levels but especially the management levels. This is having a big impact on the people and the business. Have better succession plans. If you have a plan use it and don't wait. Don't focus on high level manager roles first which don't have the impact that general manager and supervisor roles do. Listen to the needs of your people and react.

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

    Pros

    Lots of career options. Support to explore different areas(varies by manager and organization) but overall supportive. Excellent training and continuing education. Good benefits like 401 k, stock, matching, profit sharing. Strong company reputation.

    Cons

    As a supervisor I have seen how things have changed from when I was an associate. In talking with my peers we all feel the same. We are no longer valued. A little more value is given to associates, but this is only because they get recognition. We are expected to be here no matter what. Holidays, weekends, severe weather events. The decision to be here 1/1/13 and just sit here with little to no work vs. give a tired and beat down staff some time off speaks volumes. When other sites close in these conditions we are expected to risk life and limb to get here. I have heard stories about the treatment of associates during recent severe weather events and it is upsetting. This is truly a great company I still believe that and I know there are still great leaders. I have a good network and see how other parts of the org are running under leaders that see their people as humans and care about them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get more involved in this area. There are good people here. We care about the business and our people.
