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

Pros

Sound company | strong financial & fund performance | fiscally conservative and overall prudent management and guidance of the firm at the top | good benefits and professional development opportunities | flexibility and independence at most levels of the organization | community involvement encouraged | overall high caliber of people at all levels

Cons

Challenges related to rapid growth. Lack of technology integration across systems requires more manual intervention, making it challenging to get work done timely and effectively. Less focus on management and associate development than in prior years.

Advice to Management

Seek input and ideas for growth from all levels of the organization. Encourage division leadership to lead by example by taking more accountability for issues/project fails

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

    Pros

    Stable company with very few lay offs and they do a lot of work with the community and ask for volunteers for a variety of things.

    Cons

    No balance between family life and work, the pay is very low compared to other mutual fund companies, and its hard to advance to other positions.

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

    Pros

    recession proof employment, unless the market were to dive like in 2008 you'll pretty much always have this job as long as you can tolerate it

    Cons

    EVERYTHING - the writer who posted "what's wrong with me now" got it spot on ! ....In PSC we are constantly micromanaged!. There are only two types of employees at TRowe; those who are under the bus, and those who are constantly throwing you under it. The only incentive to hit numbers and meet metrics is so you can stay out of trouble, but given that all mistakes are blamed on the front line customer facing phone reps that's pretty next to impossible. Supervisors are a special kind of absent, when they are around they are too busy to help you, but instead will sit at their computers and stalk your online activity. The only thing that matters to anyone with a title is answering as many calls as possible, not that they would actually log in and assist with that effort. This is all they know. When it comes to solving problems you will dismissed and told to ask someone else. It''s bad. General managers - another very elusive bunch. Not accessbile, not accountable, not concerned with the welfare or morale of the workforce that takes the brunt of all the stress both externally from clients or the ridiculous demands forced upon us. If you like "don't question a thing" dictatorship style management you've found the place. If you want to be valued for your work and compensated fairly seriously reconsider working here. You will regret it.

    Advice to Management

    What can really be said that you'll actually do anything about ? How about hiring Gallup to anonymously poll your employees in the participant service center - now there's some advice ! I dare you --- while you're at it,, enough with mandatory overtime no one wants - stop it. We're worn out, burned out, exhausted !
