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

    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!

    "If You're Not Investments, You Don't Matter"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    Good work-life balance
    Decent comp structure
    Opportunities for horizontal mobility

    Cons

    Non-Investment personnel are treated as second class citizens are reminded of it frequently. PMs and analysts won't remember your name, and its a one strike policy: one mistake and you might as well quit, your career is over.
    Forget any chance of upward mobility unless someone quits or dies, promotions are certainly not based on merit.
    "Suggestions" and "honesty" are just codewords for "lets just do it the way we've always done it" and "tell me what I want to hear".

    Advice to Management

    Avoiding the active vs. passive discussion won't make it go away, so you might as well discuss it.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price part-time

    Pros

    Great training and mentorship program in the 529 College Savings Plan Department. A lot of really great people that would help you whenever you asked. It never felt like I was burdening them with my questions.

    Cons

    Could be monotonous processing purchases and setting up new accounts. While the help resource was expansive, it was not intuitive to navigate through.

    Advice to Management

    integrate software programs to reduce duplicate work efforts. Keep the mentorship program and career counseling.

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

    Pros

    -Pays for FINRA licenses
    -Good benefits
    -SOME co-workers are very helpful and great resources to ask questions or get advice on dealing with a situation.
    -You gain a plethora of knowledge in terms of investing, that no doubt will be helpful in a future role or for your own knowledge.

    Cons

    I can't speak for the whole company, however I can speak for this department. And all I have to say for it is AVOID it at all costs. No matter who you are, you can do better. College graduates, don't get lured in by recruiters promising all this "opportunity" and all these great perks and career expansion.

    It's a waste of your time. I'll tell you what you really are, a person who sits in a desk for 8 hours a day taking help desk phone calls for people who are locked out of something online or need help understanding something. That's all you really are. Granted, T. Rowe Price will pay for your FINRA licensing, however, it's not like you really put it to use and I'm sure there are a thousand other companies out there that do the same where you'd have an actual job doing something meaningful.

    During busy seasons, they also just tack on overtime everyday without your knowledge and give you no warning of anything. Management is very questionable, favoritism is out of control, and it's just an overall toxic work environment. Start your career elsewhere, you can do so much better than what's provided here.

    Advice to Management

    The company was founded on ethics, how about you actually enforce that and some integrity while you're at it.

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

    Pros

    Paid FINRA, decent pay, great benefits

    Cons

    There is a culture of top-down, especially if Managers go to Owings Mills, then come back to the satellite offices. Favoritism is rampant, and the workplace is a huge stress inducer.

    Advice to Management

    Go back through and follow the company's founding tenets.
