    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.

    They used to stand above other companies due to the way they treated employees, however they no longer seem to care like they used to. It's all about the bottom line and numbers.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time

    Pros

    They do have a good benefits package.

    Cons

    The structure and management of this company is not conducive to people who are in their late 30's and up. The company pushes younger people to go down a path for future leadership and they pretty much discriminate against the older more experienced generation. They overwork their employees with a ton of OT all the while claiming to be working on ways to improve processes and procedure to help cut down on OT. It never happens.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of focusing so much time and energy to taking care of stockholders, take care of the people who are performing and making you company successful. Also, stop focusing so much on developing young "Leaders" and give true talent, like the more experienced and older generation opportunities to lead the younger generation and help them learn and grow.
