    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They recognize associates as an unparalleled resource. They have one of the largest Corporate Social Responsibility groups in the area working constantly to help associates connect with their communities and causes. The culture emphasis respect and staying true to our mission and values.

    Cons

    Some groups that are more entry level seem to have higher turnover. Not sure the positive culture permeates all the way to the front line associates.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to provide managers (especially those with front line associates and high turnover) with the managerial skills they need to be positive leaders with effective and efficient teams. And continue to live the T Rowe Price culture. Every time I see our leaders address current issues with grace and courage, I am so very proud to be a T Rowe Price associate. Well done.

    Pros

    Very nice retirement plan, good benefits, nice people and culture.

    Cons

    Employee treatment differs depending on department. Finance people get better treated and usually hold positions of more power and have ability to override other team heads. As a tech employee you sometimes feel like a second class citizen.

    Pay people more

    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time

    Pros

    Exposure to many business units.
    Ability to network across the company.
    Travel to the corporate office and meet other interns.
    Accessibility to mentors and leaders within T. Rowe.
    Flexibility in working with management for projects.
    If hired full-time you have incredible potential for movement within the company if you have the drive, this can be (within reason) irrespective of your background.
    Great work/life balance.
    CEO is a fantastic role model for the company.
    Paid trip to Baltimore .

    Cons

    Large lack of structure and ambiguity of expectations placed on interns.
    Your performance is directly tied to supervisor involvement, if you get stuck with a bad supervisor it reflects on you instead. There is little you can do about it and complaining makes you look incompetent.
    Curriculum is largely a formality and not follow, huge disappointment considering it's over 30 pages long and clear someone spent a great deal of time on it.
    It's a leadership internship, you are expected to be a leader yet you are given no responsibilities as a leader. You could fake leadership and get outstanding feedback.
    Severe favoritism with internship program managers that is not tied to performance but personal preference.
    Lower pay than competitors for permanent positions.
    Not a technically internship (you don't learn a specific job) while left entirely up to you to find out what the business model really is.

    Advice to Management

    Move the leadership program back away from supervisors and into managers whom have a greater interest in the outcome of the program. While managers are busy, they do have the time to meet informally or regularly on a weekly basis and are more than willing to meet any accommodations a manager needs to have in their schedule. Establish a group or "class" for current interns so they interact on a regular basis, this enriches the experience and extinguishes isolation. Don't be afraid to entail what the position will require, if you are looking for 4.0 gpa finance students, don't be surprised if they don't stick around because they did zero analytical work.

    Pros

    Great company and benefits.
    Awesome people to work with.
    Great environment.

    Cons

    Admin salaries are much too low.
    Most admin's are over qualified for their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Need to redo your titles for Admins. 99% of a Senior Administrative Assistant's role is nothing but doing expense reports. This title should be changed to Staff Assistant and then the low salary fits the title. The title Senior Administrative Assistant should go to someone who works for a department head and salary should start at $60K.
