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

Pros

The company culture is great. At least in my department, everyone was extremely kind and professional. They were always willing to help and give support as needed.

Cons

There was a lot of down-time for the internship positions, as expected. This is not necessarily a bad thing though.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None that I can think of.

    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.
