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

    I worked at T. Rowe Price

    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.

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

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A great place to work, though sometimes you need to put some time in first before finding the best fit for you. Don't be discouraged if you are starting on the phones and feeling a little micromanaged. A lot of associates start on the phones and work their way up to bigger and better. The common denominator of those who "make it out" alive is the fact that they take ownership of their careers. The phones are a way in to a firm that offers you all sorts of opportunities, inside and outside of the world of finance.

    The benefits are great, 401(k) match one of the best, ESPP a nice perk and if used effectively, can help you to save up the remaining 25% that the firm doesn't reimburse for tuition (if math isn't your strong suit... they reimburse 75%).

    Cons

    Everyone knows the pay scale is on the conservative side...
    Downtown atmosphere can be a little stuffy but Owings Mills atmosphere can feel quite like a college campus at times. Pick what you feel is the lesser of the two evils.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage associates to take control of their careers, allow time for job shadows and info gathering to entry level associates. Be cognizant of the challenges associates deal with while working in call centers, and don't promote power hungry senior reps into management positions they might not be ready for.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Mentorship is very important to T. Rowe Price. I was immediately welcomed and treated as a member of the existing team, rather than an outsider or new employee. Everyone is very understanding, forgiving, and welcoming.

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons. I was not as fond of my supervisor as I would have liked, but technically I can't say anything wrong about the individual or the company.

    Pros

    Great holiday atmosphere.
    Was able to create good friendships.
    Offered a lot of training opportunities.
    They have a gym on sight that you can use before you go to work or after.

    Cons

    My job as an administrative assistant was kind of boring. But that was only because it was a newly added position so they didn't have anything for me to do. My manager was a bit of a micro manager but that was not the case for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
