    Pros

    Met some really great people

    Cons

    Pay is way below market average for the industry; health benefits are terrible - you get a bill in the mail everytime you visit the doctor; promotions are done based on who they like - not who is qualified

    Advice to Management

    stop making this department a numbers-driven environment causing stress and low morale. Pay your employees a decent salary, and hire managers that actually know the job, not because they talk a good game. All change is not good change.

    Pros

    Ok pay, decent benefits. Lots of free lunch. Free wifi. Large parking lot. Beautiful views. Shopping nearby. White noise pumped into the center. Air conditioning. Heating.

    Cons

    This is a call center. Lots of new college grads. Lots of gossip. Lots of immaturity. The work is mundane and repetitive. You need to be good at playing the game, for many things all you need to do is have your supervisor like you, I would say to do it by any means necessary. I must say that the supervisors and managers have a good game face; everything is appropriate on face value - but don't be alarmed if you get a very well worded, "That's the way it is, back to your seat."

    Advice to Management

    When you hire people from college how do you determine that they are professional and mature? The interview process is as phony as it gets. People have to be taught or shown how to behave. The hr department could use some work, I had several issues and I was told to take care of it myself. To my supervisor?! My Manager?! The people I was referred to were my direct supervisors and the source of my issues. What is the function of HR?

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Many very nice people to work with

    Cons

    Management in many business areas consists of clicks of like minded people that do not recognize those outside the click as having any value. This results in many single-minded decisions made in a vacuum. It also results in poor management perpetuating itself.
    Leadership is largely absent in many areas. Leaders focus on their own career goals and make no attempt to get to know those who report to them or learn what experience or strengths they already possess.
    In the business areas I am familiar with, there is no concern or effort expended by management to solicit career goals, develop skills or utilize existing skills.
    Producing consistently great results only serves to advance the manager's career goals. There is little or no reward for consistently achieving outstanding results and reviews
    Although T. Rowe as a company is ethical, many managers are not.

    Advice to Management

    Do 360 reviews on all managers at all levels. Don't sugar-coat the results by just moving managers around. Be truly committed to making T Rowe a well managed company at all levels.

    Pros

    Fair benefits, bonus until they try to get someone to quit which means people who did their jobs find all of a sudden don't.

    Cons

    Career track for a few. Your supervisors will be young and inexperienced in life, your job and will do anything to cover their backs to stay in management track including having members of their team take the heat. You will constantly have to ask for permissions for same things over and over again which irritates some supervisors who don't bother reading the manual. If you are not good at networking or brown-nosing this is not the job for life for you.

    Advice to Management

    Give credit where it is due with raises and not with just the "card" system for ideas you make money off of. Listen more and in meetings don't put down average investors if you mean World Class service.

    Pros

    Pay for your licensing to work for a decent company.

    Cons

    Management is awful, salary not competitive, scheduling is a joke. Training sets the expectations bar high, but the actual standard is abysmally low.

    Advice to Management

    This is a professional company with adults working for you. Let them do their jobs and support, not babysit.

    Pros

    The company has excellent benefits for the employees which include healthcare, company match 401k plan, stock options and vacation. The pay scale is above average.

    Cons

    Most of the promotions are within a click of people groups and not based on your experience.

    Advice to Management

    Promote qualified people and not friends.

    Pros

    The company provides decent benefits. Good training. Opportunities are available to study while you work and get your securities licenses.

    Cons

    No matter how much prior experience you have, they have you begin from an entry level position. They talk about a "culture" that began over 75 years ago...which they still live in, and want to mold you into that same culture. You're forced to work MANDATORY overtime and do not disclose this during your interview. Inconsistent schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside box. Individuals that are not "people person" perhaps should not be managing people.
