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

Pros

No weekends, but only because the stock market is closed. Be sure if it wasn't they'd force mandatory weekends

Cons

Exceedingly low salary for the industry.

No accountability amoung departments, forced mandatory overtime, no regard for the employees personal needs, incompetant supervisors that shirk responsibility when convenient and micro manage you down to the nano second of your day

Steeped and motivated only by the good ole "Not what you know, but who you know" politics so typical of call centers, but even more so at this company

Only way to get out is to quit or transfer, but transfers unlikely if you don't have a direct manager that loves you and for that be prepared to be a major brown nose!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring starting salaries up to something inline with the 21st century so staff can at least justify the misery when cashing their paychecks

Hold supervisors accountable to their roles

Hire more people to relieve the overtime burden on those that are forced to shoulder it simply because the overtime pay equates to more head count anyway if you do the math finacially

    Organizational mess
    Support does not match expectations

    Compensation is less then competitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good company to start your career and obtain experience. The firm often focuses on "flavor of the month" initiatives and loses focus on the bigger picture of focusing on the clients needs. The supervisors and managers are often weighed down with business initiative meetings and often lose focus on associate development and client services.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits for the low pay.

    Cons

    Management is a lot of group think. They have extremely sneaky and vindictive Group Managers. I would recommend looking around for new work if you're employed there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deal with the fact that the people who make the job work are the ones who take the calls, not the robots in middle management who are glorified 'Yes men". You may know how to make money, but you do it on the backs of the phone reps, whom you do not value. Talking points formulas don't work well with some people. Get rid of the spreadsheets that tell your employees everything that's wrong with them. Integrity is more of a verbalism than a reality there.
