    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative working environment; family friendly, and very livable city to work at in Baltimore. Overall stability of the firm is a major plus, very little volatility, senior level transitions are handled in a thoughtful way, and are telegraphed.

    Cons

    Depending on the group, promotion potential can be limited. Some parts of the organization can be very flat, so unless your boss leaves, you could be stuck in the same place for 5-10 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great place to build interpersonal skills and networks. People are fun and nice.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great conservative company; excellent upper management; generous benefits with 401(k) and good pay. If you are willing to relocate to Maryland, then plenty of advancement opportunities. If not, then very limited. Good corporate culture and just an overall good company to work for.

    Cons

    Willingness to expand jobs in a regional office. Mandatory overtime can be heavy in the "client-facing" departments during certain times of the year and can wear you out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what they are doing from a firm presepective.

    Current Employee - Manager in Owings Mills, MD
    Current Employee - Manager in Owings Mills, MD

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Training, campus, pay for licensing, 401k

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low. Associates basically need to live with their parents and managers need a second job to support their families. It is sad. It wouldn't be so bad but you were not expected to work way beyond 40 hours and of course every holiday and weekends. That way you could get another job. Expect your children will be the first in daycare and last picked up and count on paying late fees for keeping them there after close.

    Promotions in some areas only happen within certain groups- basically if you don't go to happy hours you don't have a chance. Talent management is not valued or rewarded. It is about who you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at your senior leaders. Pay people so they can live comfortably. It's not Colorado or Tampa- our salaries are hard to survive on in Md. Promote those who have a proven record of developing others, not those you go to happy hour with and hang out with after work.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Owings Mills campus is pretty but in a dull area. Benefits are good but not the best.

    Cons

    New executive team wants you to "challenge the status quo," and "take risks" but the minute you do you're an outsider. To succeed, you need to keep your head down and follow orders. Managers who sit in their office and only manage people are rewarded, managers that contribute are viewed as too tactical. "You're too tactical, you need to be more strategic." Strategic = meet all day, talk and accomplish nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership team (GR 47+) should be more visible and do skip level meetings. I left my manager, not T. Rowe Price.

    Pros

    highly invested in your retirement but fully vested after 5 years of service, cafeteria atmosphere is fun and friendly like in college, young workforce

    Cons

    monotonous tasks, micromanaged, company shifts around employees every 6-8 months as "promotions" to keep you from boredom, low pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a personality, most of you are as dry as chalk, and stop acting so afraid. This must stem down from their management.
