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

    Pros

    Generally great people and culture.

    Cons

    The "buzz" can be more important than your contribution. Innovation projects are difficult to start and even harder to keep going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for performance needs to extend deeper than the investment side of the house.

    Pros

    Good entry-level position into financial services
    Ability to obtain securities licenses
    Effective training
    Good people
    Benefits were good; health benefits are in rapid decline.
    Commute

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities in the Tampa location. If you enjoy working in a call center, then this is the place for you.
    Relocation is necessary if you want to expand your skills outside of a leadership position.
    "Baltocentric" way of thinking.
    Middle management craves feedback from employees but does not follow up or take action.
    Slow to implement newer technology - part of their conservative culture. However, conservatism does keep them ahead of the pack in a down economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is amazing talent in the Tampa office. Bring some other opportunities besides the call center operation. You are losing many great people due to the lack of opportunities.
