    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time

    Pros

    Stability, Good Benefits, AWA, Great Bonuses

    Cons

    Mild yearly increases, difficult to advance once you get to a certain point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep talent within the firm by hiring internally. This can be accomplished by mentoring programs to help employees begin preparing for the next steps. Much of Managements focus is on Delivery...somewhere along the way people management fell to the bottom of the priority list.

    Former Employee - Desktop Support in Baltimore, MD (US)

    I worked at T. Rowe Price as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Looks great on a resume. Benefits are amazing- matching 401k, adoption pays up to 80% of fees and tuition reimbursement. Great tool for networking.

    Cons

    Very political environment, hard to move up the ranks unless you network and even then it can be cumbersome. The hiring/on-boarding process can take weeks or months for a position approval.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management: Promote candidates that actually deserve the job and are qualified.
    More often than not it was about who you knew in the company rather than experience or job performance. Contracting for this company can be risky depending on the manager.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time (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.
