    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, nice people, nice office facilities (the sort of thing you take for granted until you go to work somewhere with much older computers etc).

    Cons

    No career development opportunities - people who 'play the game' and spend more of their time brown-nosing than actually working or managing get promoted, while other internal candidates who have worked at the company for years are put through massive hoops (20 plus interviews for an internal promotion) and then passed over. NB - I am not referring to myself. Also, the organisational structure and the way my department operated meant there were no opportunities for career development and in fact the job wasn't even how it was advertised when I applied for it so I ended up working here for a couple of years and very quickly finding I was disappointed and stagnating. But for people who are in the right sort of teams with the opportunity for career advancement - or you have the sort of personality that means you will get ahead regardless - it is a good company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at organisational structures and career development opportunities or you will continue losing staff

    Pros

    Beautiful physical work environment views

    Cons

    Excellent work performance does not translate to opportunity. Degrading, poorly qualified supervisors. Very demotivating environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what's really important rather than on minor personality conflicts. Promote only those who truly have leadership skills and experience.

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

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment, co-workers willing to share and help newer employees, friendly atmosphere, optimistic leaders, work/life balance favors the employee, career growth/internal opportunities

    Cons

    Nepotism policies preventing relatives from working in some areas of the firm, approval process for certain items needs to be abbreviated, empower leaders at secondary levels to make more decisions (not just top of house)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pressing forward with change initiatives, advertise strong brand and continue to be an employer of choice

    Pros

    Good insurance, positive work environment and management.

    Cons

    Lower than average industry salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check up on employees to see if their interests have changed. Once you have shown interest in something they won't let you change your mind,

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and time-off policies. Conservative leadership keep progress and growth at a steady consistent pace.

    Cons

    Limited career opportunities. Jobs pay less than industry peers. Trade off used to be ok because it was a very employee focused organization with a great culture. Recent management changes are changing the culture and associates seem to be more worried about keeping their jobs than doing what's right for the business.
