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

    Pros

    -Stability
    -Simplicity of work
    Great place to work while pursuing additional credentials (CFA, CFP, MBA/MS)
    -Pay for any licenses that are required for your role
    -99% of the associates are easy to get along with and are generally down to earth people
    -If you do your job there is the potential for a bonus at the associate level (3-8%) and you do have the opportunity to receive a salary increase at the beginning of every calendar year
    -This company does A LOT to help you save for your retirement, more than any other company I've ever worked for plus the stock purchase program is basically an additional 2%

    Cons

    Its a call center, never forget that. Regardless of the department or your position title including management. If volumes are projected to be high, you have to work overtime and no it is not optional. The company expects you to accommodate every one of their requests to be flexible, but don't even try to ask for the company to be flexible because its nothing short of a waste of breath.

    The company tries to fluff up how different departments operate but when it comes down to it, it is a service based company. Management is good for the most part, but its all one big game of perception. You may do next to nothing but if the higher-ups like you or think youre trying hard to improve they eat it up. It's a big game of who can get to Raymond James next in the sales and upper level Retirement sales departments and if you're not trying to get to Raymond James, you're probably sitting for the CFA/CFP or are going to grad school at night.

    Scheduling is a nightmare and they have a program that micro-manages associates up the minute. It tells you where you are suppose to be and reminds you 10 minutes before. If youre not where you're suppose to for more than 5 minutes, you get yelled at.

    I've never worked in a more depressing work atmosphere. No one is looking forward to doing their job, and this depressed vibe has spread across the site.

    The current manner in which employees are rates and bonuses determined is nothing short of a popularity contest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask more associate feedback about their superiors. Increase incentives for associates to participate in activities and contests. Develop a clear cut way to evaluate employee performance.

    It's a fairly nice place to work. People are nice and work-life balance is generally up to you (varies by boss).

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

    Pros

    Supports your professional development. Good work life balance. If you do reasonably well and play nice, you probably have one of the safest jobs in the industry.

    Cons

    You might not get much of a sense of what sort of impact you are having. There is a lot of intra-company politics. Appearances matter a lot here. There a lot of people here in middle management, so upward progression is tough.
