I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time for less than a year

Pros

No weekends, but only because the stock market is closed. Be sure if it wasn't they'd force mandatory weekends

Cons

Exceedingly low salary for the industry.

No accountability amoung departments, forced mandatory overtime, no regard for the employees personal needs, incompetant supervisors that shirk responsibility when convenient and micro manage you down to the nano second of your day

Steeped and motivated only by the good ole "Not what you know, but who you know" politics so typical of call centers, but even more so at this company

Only way to get out is to quit or transfer, but transfers unlikely if you don't have a direct manager that loves you and for that be prepared to be a major brown nose!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring starting salaries up to something inline with the 21st century so staff can at least justify the misery when cashing their paychecks

Hold supervisors accountable to their roles

Hire more people to relieve the overtime burden on those that are forced to shoulder it simply because the overtime pay equates to more head count anyway if you do the math finacially

    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits for the low pay.

    Cons

    Management is a lot of group think. They have extremely sneaky and vindictive Group Managers. I would recommend looking around for new work if you're employed there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deal with the fact that the people who make the job work are the ones who take the calls, not the robots in middle management who are glorified 'Yes men". You may know how to make money, but you do it on the backs of the phone reps, whom you do not value. Talking points formulas don't work well with some people. Get rid of the spreadsheets that tell your employees everything that's wrong with them. Integrity is more of a verbalism than a reality there.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The company culture is great. At least in my department, everyone was extremely kind and professional. They were always willing to help and give support as needed.

    Cons

    There was a lot of down-time for the internship positions, as expected. This is not necessarily a bad thing though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None that I can think of.
