    I worked at T. Rowe Price (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits with the company and you learn a lot.

    Cons

    Managers are not always the best for departments. When you have a bad manager if refelects a lot worse on you. If you get firedbecause of bad managers they will spread rumors about you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better managers who are a good fot for the department and who will be at work.

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

    Pros

    I had great coworkers, the benefits are amazing (although it seems they are going to change possibly), lovely space, lake to walk around.

    Cons

    Low paying for industry average
    There are a lot of bad managers!
    Unreachable timelines that made the bottom managers look horrible because the top managers were giving the executives ridiculous timelines.
    The top executive in my department was a total chop. He just would chop people for no reason just to do it.
    Project management was horrendous all the way around T. Rowe

    Advice to Management

    Change Everything

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

    Pros

    I have been at TRP for 10 years and I can honestly say their culture has been my favorite of any job I have had to date. Good 401(k), health insurance, etc.

    Cons

    pay- they are not competitive with the market. Also, they are pretty much encouraging an environment for you to leave for a year, come back and give you more money. Rather than if you stayed committed to them from the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    less "side of desk" projects

    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, wonderful co-workers. I really enjoyed most of my time at TRP. Life is great there as long as the market is stable and the business is good. If either shake, watch out.

    Cons

    Overly political. The organization cannot make decisions. Accountability varies. No work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    You're burning out your best and most dedicated people.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits
    Good company ethos - they don't make money unless their clients do
    A lot of smart dedicated people

    Cons

    Beware of company politics - the truth is not always welcome

    Advice to Management

    Re-implement 260 reviews for managers and give the results credence. Take a look at HR and their ability to arbitrate disputes.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed getting to know my coworkers and left with many friends.

    Cons

    Overtime is mandatory and you have absolutely zero control over how many hours or when you will work them. Look forward to that every day of the week if that's what management decides that's what's necessary. They try to make up for the poor morale with free, unhealthy food. You're sitting for more than eight to ten hours in a cube, and taking unplanned bathroom breaks counts against your metrics. It's easy to get fat and miserable. This is such a disappointing, poorly managed work environment. Unless you really, truly want the financial services industry experience or paycheck, run.

    Advice to Management

    Time to clean house in WPM and follow our values. You attract talent but fail to retain it because you are burning us out while claiming you're putting our clients first. All clients are getting are burnt-out reps and subpar service. That's something free ice cream and hot dogs can't fix.

    Pros

    Great people, convenient location (Owings Mills), and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Despite developing an integrated enterprise strategic plan in 2016 the execution of the plan seems disjointed. Perhaps the significant change in C-suite and senior leadership has resulted in a non-cohesive vision. Communications to associates continues to decline.

    Advice to Management

    Reconnect on the ISP and see where there are different views, resolve the differences, and communicate!

    Pros

    The culture among associates was amazing and a great opportunity for growth with in the company

    Cons

    Beware it may not be all that its all hyped up to be in the interview. Also there is a slight disconnect between supervisors and associates as far as expectations for associates.
