    Pros

    Job security, good benefits, and good people. Great for recent graduates and anyone looking to start their career. Very conscious of employees needs and work life balance.

    Cons

    Not always progressive enough with technological advances. Career progression is self driven, many departments do not focus on employee development.

    Advice to Management

    Hire young people, be open to change, roll out new technology sooner, and invest in the education of existing employees.

    Pros

    The culture is wonderful. Most of the employees are hard working and full of integrity. The company strongly supports promoting from within.

    Cons

    In some departments there are not much growth opportunity. This forces you to look outside the department in order to further your career and pay. They are very helpful, though ,with what you decide as your path.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice for management. I believe the company is ran well and is an excellent place to work.

    Pros

    Socially conscience, promoting teaming events which help those in the community. Good for college students to come in as interns to get good pay and good experience. Financially diligent, effectively using contingent labor to prevent Associate/employee layoffs.

    Cons

    Very relationship based instead of performance based. Accountability is lacking, with finger pointing and passive aggressive behavior. Hard to get promoted if you aren't on the "right" initiative or work in the :right" circles. Run like a private held company. Salaries are low.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace diversity and industry standard processes and terminology and define and enforce accountability at all levels. It is very difficult to hire and retain good senior people as non-T. Rowe Price methods are not usually accepted.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits; excellent pay. Highly ethical senior management. Financially stable. Focused on delivering results for clients. Reasonable work-life balance for most roles. Size presents diverse opportunities.

    Cons

    Incredibly slow decision making. Lack of technical leadership. Long-tenured staff who've never experienced other environments have difficulty accepting things that aren't "the T. Rowe way". Big disconnects between technical, services and investment arms. Many operations stuck with legacy processes and technologies. Middle layers incredibly resistant to change.

    Advice to Management

    There's a need for some abrupt action to shock the culture into the changes necessary to operate in today's environment. The core values aren't incompatible with this.

    Pros

    There is great development and plenty of room for internal growth. They will also assist in helping you acquire your licensing.

    Cons

    There are serious staffing issues and tons of mandatory overtime. The company seems to have outgrown its ability to staff. As such, it is beginning to suffer morale issues.

    Advice to Management

    To retain your employees, you may need to pay them more to compensate for the extreme conditions your employees work in.

    Pros

    I have worked with some wonderful people at TRP. The 401k benefits are great. The time off is generous for sick, vacation, and appointments.

    Cons

    Leadership is very young and inexperienced. It is rare to have a supervisor or senior that has more job knowledge than the actual associates that they oversee. The confidence associates have toward leadership is minimal because of the lack of knowledge and experience. Leadership all seem to repeat the same cliche phrases over and over as if they were spoon fed what to say and how to say it. It makes one wonder if they have the ability for independent thought, ideas, and dialogue.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep supervisors in their roles long enough to become proficient in their knowledge of that departments processes and procedures. Better yet, promote people based on job knowledge, experience, and leadership skills. A lot of knowledge and experience has walked out the door over the past several months because they do not like the direction that T Rowe Price is going with their choice of inexperienced leaders that were not proficient in the core job functions before being promoted.
