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

Pros

401k Match and Investment Choices
Gain a better understanding of the financial industry.
Time off

Cons

Salary is horrible and does not keep pace. For instance if you are starting as a Supervisor you will receive around $51k and a Supervisor that has been in the role for lets say 4-5 years will make $53k. To make things worse a few associates with overtime may make as much or more than you. Year after year we are told that it is being reviewed, but it always remains the same. A lot of great talent is lost to other companies once a ceiling is met.

The management tends to focus on the low performing associates more than the associates that are meeting or exceeding expectations.

At one point (6 years ago) T. Rowe Price only hired people with a college degree, now it hires anyone that has some sort of customer service and can answer a behavioral question on the interview right.

If an associate discusses something with HR it is quickly spread to the management team. I have told multiple associates to not discuss certain things with HR as it may harm them with how they are perceived by the management team.

The current health care package is a joke.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a look at your current Management structure as you have people in a leadership role that only know how to gossip behind closed doors and bring personal problems to work.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Easy access to offices. Really nice people.

    Super stock program.

    Cons

    Salaries oriented toward the middle of pay grades, except for the investment groups
    Top-down, detail-oriented management destroys accountability and initiative in middle and upper management ranks
    Everyone looking over their shoulder -- people just do their job because they value longevity over accomplishment.
    Management says it cares about its people, but doesn't really support that notion through compensation or work environment -- at heart, this is a very cheap firm, if you're not a stockholder.
