I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time

Pros

Good entry-level position into financial services
Ability to obtain securities licenses
Effective training
Good people
Benefits were good; health benefits are in rapid decline.
Commute

Cons

Lack of opportunities in the Tampa location. If you enjoy working in a call center, then this is the place for you.
Relocation is necessary if you want to expand your skills outside of a leadership position.
"Baltocentric" way of thinking.
Middle management craves feedback from employees but does not follow up or take action.
Slow to implement newer technology - part of their conservative culture. However, conservatism does keep them ahead of the pack in a down economy.

Advice to Management

There is amazing talent in the Tampa office. Bring some other opportunities besides the call center operation. You are losing many great people due to the lack of opportunities.

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

    Pros

    A decent package of benefits, an outstanding investment management firm, a bullet-proof reputation, tidy and attractive balance sheet, pro-client and pro-stockholder.

    Cons

    Most associates are on lease as short-term assets/long-term liabilities, does not encourage ownership except for a few select insiders, ultra-secretive regarding compensation, 'culture' can be passive-aggressive.

    Advice to Management

    Treat more associates as owners and reward those who do good as you reward yourselves, and they will give the firm and their clients better ROI. Be more transparent, and respect the relative intelligence of your workforce. Live up to your well-earned reputation Internally, and transcend to become truly the most prized and appreciated investment management firm in the world.
