    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They attracted the most intellegent people in the industry so it's a great learning experience to work with them.

    The very prudent culture is what investment industry preferred as conservativeness is a practical and the proven best way to protect investors.

    Cons

    we have many resources. but since technology is outdated, projects commonly run slower than ppl expected.

    Everyone seems to be occupied to their very granular responsibilites and the culture do not motivate innovative thinking.

    The year end review involves 360 review, which asks (too) many colleagues to evaluate ppl they don't even familiar with. as you expected, the review process raced to become a popularity test and that disadvantaged many tech oriented ppl who is not very social.

    Advice to Management

    It's better to invest with TROW than work for TROW.

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

    Pros

    401k benefits as a FT employee are great. The people are nice, and work/life balance is recognized. The Owings Mills campus is a very pleasant place to go every day.

    Cons

    The marketing efforts lack clear direction, and almost every project is mired in too many meetings, plans and stakeholder reviews. A lot of people are just trying to get through the day and check off a list vs. creating great content. A lot of the juicy design work is exported to outside vendors, leaving scraps for the in-house teams.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pros are all the perks and benefits they give you. No one can compare to what T. Rowe gives you which is a lot of the reason it's so hard to leave the company.

    Cons

    Organization. They do a "re-org" several times in the past year and someone who use to be your co-worker becomes your direct manager. First time managers and young mangers who forget they're managing people and not inmates. If you feel like HR will help - good luck. Only a few of them will truly listen to your needs and want to come up with solutions. There's little room for growth potential. If you want to grow in your role you have to put in the time so they say or move departments.

    Advice to Management

    Explore different ways to work with your employees instead of against them. Rather than looking for ways to find disciplinary action or grounds for dismissal look for the root problem.
