  3. "Overview of Working for TRP as a PSC Representative"

    Former Employee - PSC Representative in Owings Mills, MD
    Former Employee - PSC Representative in Owings Mills, MD

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

    Pros

    -The overarching company culture is centered around keeping its employees happy and trying to give them the most opportunity for growth within the firm.

    -Many things to boost worker morale like free food, a nice rewards site for employee recognition, discounts to local attractions or sporting events, and a solid 401(k) plan w/ employer match and discretionary contributions

    Cons

    -This position is as low on the bottom of the totem pole as can get in any of TRP's main functions. You're a glorified call center representative and even though it is an inbound call center where you're educated on all things 401(k)/IRA your participants still feel like treating you as if you're a telemarketer or like you're supposed to give them the ability to do whatever they want with money in a retirement account regardless of IRS rules and plan guidelines.

    -You consistently get mandatory overtime with little notice of it so in weeks where it's OT heavy it may feel like work is life. For 8 months I was here, our department as a whole was understaffed which led to everyone working constantly and the level of burnout among everyone was palpable when I got in the door every morning.

    -It often seems like supervisors do absolutely nothing throughout the day and the way seniors and supervisors are selected often appears questionable considering everyone's credentials

    -Low paying compared to competitors in the industry with similar positions

    -Very hard and tenuous process to obtain a new role trying to transfer out of PSC/II Services

    Advice to Management

    If you have no say on employee compensation, at least do your best to empathize with the common worker in Investor Services and try to put yourself in their shoes every once in a while.

    Pros

    This is a great place for advancement. Friendly people who allow you the time it takes to understand the industry.

    Cons

    The company follows a total compensation model which means less money in your pocket. Stagnation is possible if you're pursuing a management path.

    Advice to Management

    In management, continue finding fun and interesting ways to motivate your associates. Errors are normal and don't seem to matter as much as buying into the company beliefs.
