    Pros

    Great benefits
    Many very nice people to work with

    Cons

    Management in many business areas consists of clicks of like minded people that do not recognize those outside the click as having any value. This results in many single-minded decisions made in a vacuum. It also results in poor management perpetuating itself.
    Leadership is largely absent in many areas. Leaders focus on their own career goals and make no attempt to get to know those who report to them or learn what experience or strengths they already possess.
    In the business areas I am familiar with, there is no concern or effort expended by management to solicit career goals, develop skills or utilize existing skills.
    Producing consistently great results only serves to advance the manager's career goals. There is little or no reward for consistently achieving outstanding results and reviews
    Although T. Rowe as a company is ethical, many managers are not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do 360 reviews on all managers at all levels. Don't sugar-coat the results by just moving managers around. Be truly committed to making T Rowe a well managed company at all levels.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked here from 2008-2010 during the recession.

    If you could network well and avoid the politics, you did well. The firm was pretty stable. We didn't take as big a downsize hit during the recession compared to other finance firms. Plenty of opportunity for overtime pay.

    Cons

    Sometimes too much politics. If you aren't careful you can get type-casted in a negative way and your opportunities will be limiting.

    Pros

    Good benefits and beautiful,wooded Owings Mills campus with onsite cafeterias and fitness center. Friendly employees with some great underlying talent.

    Cons

    Talent not recognized if it doesn't fit in exactly with management styles. Good starter company to learn the basics, but don't stay too long, you'll stall out your career. I waited too long to find that out. As the saying goes "You don't leave a company, you leave a manager."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and never forget Thomas Rowe Price's principle of "Take care of your customers and they will take care of you." The mission is becoming diluted and personal and divergent missions have taken over.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and a great way to learn the business. If you are looking for a company to sponsor you for your licenses and 'learn the ropes' this a good company to work for. You have a very core role at first but can expand and advance as you see fit. You can go from basic customer service to dealing with more high value clients to sales.

    Cons

    Compensation within sales is less than you could make with competing firms. If you work in the investor centers you get great face to face experience with clients, but the pay that you get here is not as good as most firms. The sales positions are not 'cut throat' and your pay is not really impacted by sales numbers. Many top performers tend to leave the company for higher paying competitors, but I would definitely suggest T. Rowe as a place to get experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what your competitors pay and remain competitive. Also, there needs to be more focus placed on brokerage since mutual funds are not being replaced by ETFs.

    Team oriented environment, most rewards are for helping the group. Naked pursuit of self interest a bad idea.

    Pros

    Very comfortable working in an environment where people want you to succeed.

    Cons

    Well-defined paths for your career are hard to figure out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employees learn what path moves them ahead. Just working hard and being a team player doesn't always do it.

    Pros

    The company offers great work life balance, benefits, stock purchasing, etc. T Rowe Price is growing and understand how important it is to invest in it's people to get the most out of them. You can learn a lot from this company and it's just a great place to work.

    Cons

    Since it isn't a huge company, it can take a little while to advance.
