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

    Pros

    Think you'll struggle to find an Asset Manager that treats you as well as T. Rowe Price in terms of pay, work/life balance, perks and benefits.

    Cons

    As everyone at T. Rowe will tell you, the legacy technology is really starting to show its age - although there's a big push in getting this changed.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of career progression of juniors.

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

    Pros

    Having been at the sharp end of investment banking I was feeling a little jaded and world-weary before hopping aboard the good ship T. Rowe. I was surprised that a finance organisation wasn't there just to profit at the expense of others - the company grows as the wealth of its clients grow, This translates into a calm and measured decision-making process and the emphasis of doing things RIGHT rather than right now. People very warm and friendly

    Cons

    Decision-making is slow, and frustrating as it is to an individual it prevents any one person or group sinking the ship

    Advice to Management

    Stay nice
