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

    Pros

    A new employee can become fully licensed and very desirable to the competitors, where everyone eventually ends up going.

    Cons

    Management will lie to you. You can exceed expectations, but if you are not young or don't try to promote every year or so, they will try to manage you out. If you don't take the hint, you could be demoted or terminated.

    ADVICE: Get your licenses and a year or 2 of experience and move to a real Investment firm. If you are given an action plan, find another job and fast. Or you may be out 6 months to a year later.

    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 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.

    Cons

    Industry hurt by lower-cost / passive options which likely to be a headwind for growth.
    Location near Harbor not ideal.

    Pros

    Good culture, good people, really good benefits

    Cons

    Lot's of change right now so many people are being let go. Hard to move up - depends on who you know. VERY slow decision making and low salaries

    Advice to Management

    Nice is not always good - stop the T Rowe Nice mindset

    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.
