Pros

Great benefits package, a good place to get your foot in the door in the financial services industry. The company has been around a long time and have remained true to their core values and conservative nature in the investment industry. Before the economic meltdown, there were many opportunities to move around the firm and I'm sure those doors will open up as things get better. Even with the current economic situation, the company still promotes employee self growth through behavior learning and hard skills training classes.

Cons

Compensation is on the low end and the great benefits package they tout aren't that valuable if your young, healthy and don't have a family. Its absurd that a company of this size doesn't offer free gym membership to the on site fitness center.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication between groups seems to be lacking, stronger lines of communication between groups would lead to more work efficiency.

    Pros

    Benefits, hands down.
    It's also a great place to learn about the finance business and after you've put your grunt work in you can definitely move ahead.
    It's a young workforce so you definitely get the feeling that you can move ahead.

    Cons

    It has a very corporate culture, even though it is a bit more laid back than most. There are still a lot of silly rules.
    I don't feel that they compensate well enough, and because of the that they tend to get less quality associates than other firms in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the amount of communication and integration between departments relative to customer service.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price

    Pros

    Benefits and opportunites to do something different in the company. Some people in other divisions really seem to like their jobs. Owings Mills campus is beautiful with nice cafeteria. The campus is easy to get to for a lot of people.

    Cons

    In some areas, there are cut throat employees. Sometimes it is difficult trying to coordinate across other divisions. Non-technical managers trying to manage technical projects was a problem sometimes, but that is like everywhere else I guess.
