Financial Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at T. Rowe Price in July 2011.
Interview Details – Straightforward. A little bit frustrating because it took weeks upon weeks for them to contact me between interviews. Great company though. Just slow moving.
Interview Question – What does your ideal portfolio look like? Answer Question
Mutual Fund Accounting Associate Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took 3 days - interviewed at T. Rowe Price in June 2011.
Interview Details – The interview process is simple and quite straight forward. The HR individual was not very cordial which was disappointing. The Interview was also relatively short compared to some of the others I had done (about 1.5 hours for the interview with the hiring managers). All personality based questions. The Owings Mills office did seem very 'collegial' as described during phone interview, and the hours were more then reasonable.
Interview Question – What have you done in the past year to help someone else that was of no gain to you. Answer Question
Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at T. Rowe Price in June 2011.
Interview Details – Applied directly on website and received e-mail to coordinate a phone interview a few days later. Phone call was mostly going over my current experience and resume details. It lasted roughly an hour at which point I was invited to come in for a full day of interviewing in their offices in Baltimore (they paid for transportation and offered hotel but I didn't require it). I interviewed with 8 people about 2 weeks later (would have been sooner but there were scheduling issues on both sides). Interviews were of medium intensity with difficult finance questions being sparse and open-ended. Lasted from 9am till about 3pm (there was a lunch interview as well with an employee in the position I would be taking). Overall, very pleasant group of people and I enjoyed interviewing with them. Alas, I was turned down in a very polite and helpful manner (they gave feedback). Looks like a great company to work for and highly recommend anyone to apply for positions there.
Financial Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took 2 days - interviewed at T. Rowe Price in March 2010.
Interview Details – It was an on-campus interview where I interviewed with a senior level executive who I met the previous evening at an information session. It was very laid back since everything she needed to know was on my resume. I asked A LOT of questions about the company to stretch the interview out to 30 minutes. After a week or so I was invited to the Owings Mill campus where I had 3 interviews with employees, a group tour, and a job shadow.

Investment Operations Associate Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
The process took 3 months - interviewed at T. Rowe Price in March 2011.
Interview Details – I applied through the university's job board. I did a 1:1 interview that was about 45 minutes long. I received a call back in less than a week and set up an interview at T Rowe Price's office.
Second interview included two 1:1 interviews, a lunch, a tour, and transportation too and from their office (including flight). They told me I would hear back in about two weeks.
Three weeks went by and I sent an email asking about my candidate status. I received a general email that said there were many qualified candidates and they would need more time to decided. I accepted another offer a couple weeks later. About 10 weeks after my second interview I got a call about offering me a position.
- What do you consider a harder subject: Accounting or Finance? Answer Question
- Where do you see yourself in two years? In ten years? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I was given an offer with another company that was for a lot more money, in a better location, for a job I was more interested in, and I went through a long interview process with this company (multiple interviews and steps) where I was contacted quickly after each step.

Marketing Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at T. Rowe Price in November 2010.
Interview Details – For a significant player in the financial space, the Marketing Department was very average. Interviewed over the course of 5-6 hours for a management level position. Had to interview with five different marketers, each less impressive than the next. No creative juice. Just personnel that had figured out how to keep their job's till the next week. None were well versed in any digital tactics and the operating system was circa 1990. No drive to stand-out and be thought leaders. Also, no one was direct with the questioning, which helped to expose them of their lack of knowledge.
Interview Question – How do you run a marketing campaign? View Answer
Reason for Declining – Would Be like working in an accounting department, but without the creativity.
