Pros

Awesome benefits.
After 4 yrs you get 3 weeks of vacation.
It's a fun place to work if you don't have a micro manager breathing down your neck.
Beautiful view of either the airport or downtown Tampa.
Company has a gym on the first floor and gives you $250/yr for a gym membership.
They hire genuinely good people who are nice to be around. It's a very safe work environment.

Cons

The company loves to promote people who are incompetent. If you know a lot, you're see as a threat. They'd like some Certain people are "fast tracked" for no apparent reason. The one nice thing is, if you're a woman or a minority...they love that. If you're not you better learn to kiss up. It's not uncommon for a supervisor to be overseeing a department they've never ever worked in. You don't need to know anything to lead - I believe that's EDGE's motto. You have to work one weekend day a month.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be so slow to hire. In doing so, people are promoted who aren't ready. This then hurts the company as a whole.

    Pros

    Opportunity, 401k, health and dental. I do appreciate the paths and growth that can occur at T. Rowe Price. It is a fantastic company.

    Cons

    The pay at T. Rowe Price is horrible, you are making 33k starting. They do not pay if you have a degree they hire people with diplomas to answer phones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know we live in colorado but please try to pay your employees more as they are the front line to the company.
