    Pros

    Intern pay is great! Everyone is willing to help you.

    Cons

    The work can get tedious, but that is because I am processing the same types of request. You do learn a lot.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to management, but to keep up the great work. Management cares about their employees.

    Pros

    T. Rowe is veritably stocked with sharp, enthusiastic, and community-service oriented people who do a very beautiful job of collaborating and innovating on often daunting and uncharted enterprises. The leaders of the institution are down to earth, incredibly smart, and dedicated to institutional stability.

    Cons

    Within the internal enterprise publishing department, processes are often either longstanding and thus Byzantine or frighteningly improvisational. The internal communications departments would be well served to study and implement the remarkably successful systematic and research-based approach taken by the financial services branches of the organization; as it often seemed as though production processes (most notably with respect to video production) were not particularly well thought out or adequately vetted. Sadly, as is the case in many organizations that create mixed teams of contractors and full time staff, there is a fair bit of disregard and lack of respect on the part of management toward their in-house contract staff. My ultimate assessment is that this is a great company to work on staff for, but I would strongly suggest potential contract employees be prepared to receive a markedly lower level of support, security, and mentoring from management in comparison to their full time staff colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees, and responding to them directly. The level of voluntary executive accountability displayed by TRP's leadership is inspiring.

    Pros

    There was some great personal finance training, a great volunteer experience, and a large group of other interns to befriend.

    Cons

    Low paying, slow work load, a presentation skills training that was useless to me at least, and the cafeteria is really expensive

    Advice to Management

    Try to add a few more perks to the internship program and combine departments for interactions more.

    Pros

    Friendly staff and environment. Great benefits

    Cons

    To many politics. The higher ups are very condescending

    Advice to Management

    Focus on grooming employees for success instead of pushing your own agendas and biases

    Pros

    Long history of collaboration and caring deeply about customers

    Cons

    Pace if decision making often slow, but efforts in place to help streamline

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose what's good, a lot of new managers aren't prepared for their roles and are feeding morale problems

    Pros

    You work with really smart people and there are plenty of opportunities to learn. The benefits are fantastic and you can move within the company if you want to advance. I believe T. Rowe gave me a really strong foundation for my career.

    Cons

    Like anywhere the work can get boring, but there are opportunities to try new things if you want to.

    Advice to Management

    When I was there it was hard to push things through (promotions, raises, etc) but I think that is pretty normal for a big company. When it came down to it and they were in a position to show their appreciation for my work they did and I really have nothing but positive things to say!

    Pros

    Beautiful physical work environment views

    Cons

    Excellent work performance does not translate to opportunity. Degrading, poorly qualified supervisors. Very demotivating environment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what's really important rather than on minor personality conflicts. Promote only those who truly have leadership skills and experience.
