    I worked at T. Rowe Price

    Pros

    T. Rowe Price offers some of the best benefits around to full time employees. Since I was an intern I did not expect nor did I receive any benefits. However, from talking to full time employees, I saw that that T. Rowe Price offered many incentives such as matching 401k's and increasing bonuses that other firms did not offer. Additionally, the environment is stimulating and the level of professionalism I saw was enormous. During my time, I participated in many intern events and because this was a long term co-op, I was placed in fully paid corporate housing, which was a huge benefit.

    Cons

    The feedback I received for my performance lacked tremendously. I thought I was doing a good job, but later in the program I received complaints about performance related issues that happened a long distance time in the past. The feedback is the worst part of T. Rowe Price where people are afraid to let ones thoughts known about what is going on and to the level of perception that others see you. This is a downside of the firm that I hope they would improve because an employee doesn't know how others perceive him/her unless adequate feedback is provided to the employee.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price

    Pros

    T. Rowe Price is a stable company with good benefits and a pleasant work environment. The company has a service culture which is unmatched by most in the financial services industry. The training opportunities are top notch. Former T. Rowe Price employees are well respected for their knowledge throughout the industry. I received training that allowed me to move straight into a senior level consulting postion when I left the firm. I very much enjoyed the time I spent working there.

    Cons

    The pay is on the low end of the financial service sector scale. Upward mobility is limited in most postions. The tie between performance and pay needs to be strengthened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would look for ways to increase pay and advancement opportunities for employees and better tie pay to performance.

    Pros

    T. Rowe Price values intellectual integrity and teamwork, and is a stable company to work for. The management seems to be competent and training is known to be world class. The Owinings Mills campus is very beautiful with a nice cafeteria. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    The salary is low. Benefits are generous but they are definitely not a substitute for low salary. For the reputation the company has, it doesn't always hire jobs seekers with better credentials. Most hires seem to be through referrals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible with part-time graduate students attending classes in the evening.

    It's easy to work someplace where you respect the people you work with and the service that you provide.

    Pros

    Great benefits, incredibly dedicated and motivated employees. We put out a well-respected and quality service and take a conservative approach. It's easy to work someplace where you respect the people you work with and the service you provide your customers.

    Cons

    It can be a bit slow to move -- the good side of this is that we are collaborative in most all that we do, but it tends to slow process down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Management in my department was helpful and communicative. The work-life balance is there (in most departments). Intern pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    As with any investment management company, there are a lot of monotonous back-office jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for not following the sheep into the tech stocks or real estate asset bubbles.

    Pros

    The benefits package is tremendeous, upper management is extremenly open in their communcations. Brand recognization is great and knowing that you have a secure job even in the worst of times can be pretty satisfying.

    Cons

    90% of all the jobs are in Maryland, so if you want to move up within the company be prepare to move there.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work. As an intern, I was given a lot of responsibility and meaningful work. The people at T. Rowe Price are wonderful. My manager went above and beyond to make my experience memorable. It is really a great company to work for, and is emerging as one of the top Investment Management firms.

    Cons

    As an intern, I received a perfect performance review but was not extended an offer. Instead, they asked me to come back during the school year and continue working as an intern.
