    Pros

    Great team, strong ethical approach, collaborative culture

    Not all managers are good at management and mentoring of strong associates. You need to be able to manage both up and down.

    Clearer opportunities for associates.

    Absolutely fantastic company to start your career with. TRP goes above and beyond for it's employees and helping them achieve their goals.

    Pay is not as competitive as it could be, and some departments within the company can be viewed as lackluster.

    Pros

    Management going through thoughtful reorganization and goal setting exercises- gives me faith going forward. Thoughtful and respectful culture. Strong asset management reputation and consistent performance.

    Cons

    Role clarity and promotion paths are consistent areas of ambiguity for many. Headwinds from passive mutual funds, open architecture challenges, and DOL regulation. Technology is often a pain point.

    Advice to Management

    Set a clear path forward, focusing on talent management, investments in technology, and competitive headwinds and opportunities. Look at what is working at Schwab, etc. Consider robust M&A strategy.

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

    Pros

    Great team members and management. Stress free work environment. This field is requiring at least a twenty word minimum and I don't have any other pros so I'm typing non sense

    Cons

    No growth potential in Tampa. Opportunities are given to other site locations due to "staffing needs". Consistently hit with day of mandatory overtime. No communication across all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and honest with associates. Better communication across levels could be beneficial.

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

    Pros

    Rewarding, nice culture, great people. Overall a great place to work and learn the industry. Depending on location advancement opps may be limited.

    Cons

    Pay could be better to come into line with the industry average. Trp is still lower paying than its competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take so long to make decisions. When it comes to "retaining talent", you should look at all depts regardless of pay scale or tenure. There are a lot of people who would love to stay long term at Trp but are pushed out because they aren't always part of the "club", but are sharper and probably more talented than the majority of them.

    Pros

    Good compant. Great benefits and perks. Get all us holidays off paid. Flexible schedules. Work is challenging but not overwhelming.

    Cons

    Direction isnt considered or asked by engineers, instead only from high level managers. Sometimes migrations or projects dont make sense and have to be replanned after the fact due to limited technical expertise at initial meetings. Happens repeatedly.

    Advice to Management

    Include engineers from all teams involved to complete project.

    Pros

    Good work/social life balance, Good retirement and stock option plan, nice facilities with gym and cafeteria (if at Owings Mills campus), large company with opportunities to work in other areas

    Cons

    Pay is not as high as other firms, could definitely be more and would barely affect the firm. Firm is not very generous on vacation days.

    Advice to Management

    work on pay and vacation days


  11. "Admin Assistant"

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

    Pros

    I love my coworkers and environment most of the time. Decent work/life balance. Managers do care about employees and most like when you take initiative in networking with them

    Cons

    Compensation is not best based on friends I have talked to at different companies. Seems as if there is only so far to one can advance

    Advice to Management

    Be more cohesive in your approach. Different managers different ways, I'm sure it's like that anywhere, but not having polar opposites would be nice
