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

    Pros

    Job stability, nice office, fun people. Not a terrible place to work but you are at a giant company, cog in the wheel.

    Cons

    Too big, too many layers of management, lack of creative freedom, not the most modern tech stack.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to change, it is what it is. There are always plusses and minuses of any company at that size.

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

    Pros

    I love my coworkers and environment most of the time. Decent work/life balance. Managers do care about employees and most like when you take initiative in networking with them

    Cons

    Compensation is not best based on friends I have talked to at different companies. Seems as if there is only so far to one can advance

    Advice to Management

    Be more cohesive in your approach. Different managers different ways, I'm sure it's like that anywhere, but not having polar opposites would be nice

    Pros

    They are very big on promoting growth, great work life balance, fitness center on site, and excellent benefits package.

    Cons

    I personally feel you have to brown noise your boss in order to move forward. They promote growth but I only see individuals that are best friend's with the boss moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    A great number of your employee feel that there is a division in the company and a lot of the same offers are not being offered to all employee. You speak of equal opportunity but it is not being activity practiced.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    *Benefits are fair
    *Buildings are nice
    *They pay for your licensing

    Cons

    *Horribly managed by Supervisors and "Lead Managers"
    *Very unfair and political when it comes to promotions
    *Make one mistake and you are branded for your entire tenure at TRP
    *EXTREMELY micromanaged
    *Management is not honest with you
    *Very low pay claims are true
    *Not everyone receives the same training
    *Corrective action is not across the board for everyone
    *No matter how hard you try, if a manager doesn't like you, you will be treated unfairly
    *Lots of upper management have family working there too, they will get promoted even if they do not deserve it
    *If you are not young and just out of college, don't bother applying - company is against older, experienced employees
    *Metrics reporting is flawed and often incorrect but TRP lives and breathes the metrics, reporting of inaccuracies is ignored
    *Supervisors lie to you
    *Favoritism is rampant
    *This reporting is for Colorado Springs campus

    Advice to Management

    It wouldn't matter, advice is ignored

    Pros

    Great company, awesome benefits, coaching/mentoring.

    Cons

    Apprehension/not very diverse as mentioned, not much opportunity if coming in as an Admin Assistant.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder with your problem managers; inform administrative assistants of the managers they are going to be paired with. Give an opportunity to move if not a "right fit" for current manager.

    Pros

    Great location, staff is all friendly, benefits are great. Company offers advancement opportunities to you if you take advantage of it.

    Training for licensing can be difficult. Strict attendance policy and dress policy for a call center. Overtime is mandatory but is told up front.

    Advice to Management

    Take into consideration an individuals testing abilities and accommodate them instead of shoving them out the door.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy, diverse set of responsibilities, 4 weeks vaca, company stock match, 8 hours volunteer time, and very cool people to work with. T. Rowe takes care of employees when they need to be out (i.e. medical leave)

    Cons

    HR policies and procedures lead to a lot of red tape in the corrective action process, Total comp is solid due to great benes, but base salary is on the low side of average provided the variable structure. There are lots of long term career options but breaking into higher level positions takes a very very long time

    Advice to Management

    more hiring from within needed

    Pros

    Love how quickly a smart hard worker can rise through the ranks. Great bonuses, both into your retirement account and % paid to you in December

    A lot of overtime during tax season. If unwilling to relocate you max out at Assistant VP

    Advice to Management

    Hire individuals for entry level that have varied backgrounds. Not just kids straight out of college.
