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

    Pros

    Think you'll struggle to find an Asset Manager that treats you as well as T. Rowe Price in terms of pay, work/life balance, perks and benefits.

    Cons

    As everyone at T. Rowe will tell you, the legacy technology is really starting to show its age - although there's a big push in getting this changed.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of career progression of juniors.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, no jerk rule. People are generally helpful and want to keep the company a place to work for a long time. This is the first company I have worked at where I can see spending most of my career. You will be rewarded for hard work and the firm is large enough that you can change careers in many different areas throughout the company.

    Cons

    The pace of change can be slower than other industries/companies; maintains a few elements of bureaucracy that any larger company faces.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, Profit Sharing, 401k Contribution, Great first job experience, Learned a lot, GREAT company, Transactions is just a horrible place to be.

    Cons

    Management in the Transactions department is atrocious. They get you in the door claiming that you can easily move to other departments after you've been there 1 year, but it's not true. The department sets you up for failure, then punishes you. You will work at least 30-45 minutes of overtime every day and will work 12 hour days at fiscal quarter and year ends. Very stressful job and not enough pros to outweigh the negatives. No work/ life balance in transactions at all.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the "Lean Management" system, it's garbage. There are never enough people in transactions and everyone is overworked. Focus on retention rather than just shuffling people in and out constantly and you'll get the positive client response you're going for.

    Good people to work with. Flexible with time off for a salary worker. Great 401k plan and ESPP. Overall great benefits and it keeps the employees happy.

    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.
