    I worked at T. Rowe Price as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people who really cared about the work they do. Great team work

    Cons

    Contractors were not treated as full members of the team. I understand for company benefits and some company-wide meetings, that makes sense. But contractors couldn't sit near the FTEs, which made collaborating hard. Also contractors were not allowed to work remote, which seemed random -- especially since we couldn't sit near the FTEs anyway, so most of the time we talked on the phone. Why make us come into the office to call our coworkers?

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, it's a good place to work, so keep up the good work.

    Pros

    T. Rowe Price firmly stands behind the overall brand and essential values.
    Great company to work for. Excellent benefits, annual bonus, and fair pay.

    Cons

    Re-org changes every 3-5yrs.
    Can be a bit uncomfortable. Especially if you're just getting used to being on a certain team or dept.

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

    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 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.

    - they need to change and have key initiates to do so but change is at a snail's pace
    - terrible work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Move faster and don't let seniority block high performers
    Give people a chance to have a life outside of the office

    Pros

    For many, good work life balance. There are opportunities to work from home. People are friendly to your face.

    Cons

    Beware of Silos. Very few roles have a clear path that goes more than from ___ to Senior ___. If treading water for you get started in the right place with a good manager, TRP is the best. For others, politics and management's inefficiency can have you treading water for years, not really getting anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more technical training that can be used in one's daily work. Your not using your human capital to its potential and are wasting a lot of resources on outdated methods and technologies.
