    I have been working at T. Rowe Price

    Pros

    Great benefits, professional and friendly culture, room for growth. Professional and self-development is important to leadership. Great place to start your career. Great training programs.

    Cons

    Low Salary. I think it is sad they are an investment firm that teach about the importance of out pacing inflation and annual merit increases are lower than 3%. You can not out pace inflation by staying in a position for longer than a year. You have to move around the company to have a significant salary increase. This makes it hard for leadership because of the turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will need to increase annual merit increases if you want to retain talent.

    Pros

    Office complex is great. Benefits are good. Over atmosphere of the organization is ok. People that work at the location are friendly and willing to help.

    Cons

    It is very political environment. Management talks about how they promote from with, but that is a false front front. The organization does not take previous experience into account and how those skills may bring a fresh perspective and help the organization grow.

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

    Pros

    Really nice people, generous vacation time and very understanding when personal issues arise.
    They have given me a great and challenging project because I have the right skills, behaviors and history. Have not pushed back at all.

    Cons

    Politics abound. Other groups try to stall resources and projects. Names of divisions change constantly so this adds to confusion. A bit of Nation-Building going on, as best that can happen in a small mid/size company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some Standard Operation Models in place and stick to them. Have patience, it takes awhile for them to settle in. Nothing is perfect at first, so give it time and trust your teams.
