    Too much work, not enough pay

    I worked at T. Rowe Price

    Pros

    Good benefits, get a bonus every year

    Cons

    Work load is quite high with some of the worse salaries in the company. Starting out the call center reps can make more money than a RPC without half as much responsibility or impact on how the company is viewed by clients and the community

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standards are high in every other area. Why now increase pay so that they compensation is at least competitive with other companies

    Pros

    Nice work environment, beautiful campus

    Cons

    Used to have a good work life balance, but there are a lot of changes occurring, which makes a lot of employees question management. As with most corporate America jobs, it's a lot of politics, thy either like you or don't. Compensation is still below other companies in the industry.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, great starter job, availability to hop departments and become licensed. Excellent training programs.

    Cons

    10 people in line to replace you. You are 100% replaceable. Salary is not competitive and merit increases are laughable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation - this needs to be realistic

    Pros

    This company does have good health insurance and the retirement benefits are better than most.

    Cons

    There is a high school mentality that stems across the RPS department. If your not part of the click or the popular you aren't in line for any kind of promotion or any consideration even if you have the credentials to support it. Also, expect to be micromanaged and watched heavily and constantly. One last point, this is just another customer service job... Even if you are correct/accurate in your position the client will always be right and you are wrong...you never seem to be able to win. Pay is also about $5-$10k lower than competitors in the same industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of talented people out there but you will never now if you don't give your employees the chance and hire/promote based on how much you like them and if they fit your mold. One last suggestion, but stop micromanaging. For an institution who has such a high turn around, you be surprised how many people will stay and go above and beyond for you if you let them do the job you originally hired them to do.
