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

    Pros

    Learned a lot during my time there. Everyone was extremely friendly and willing to help. I worked on meaningful projects. Company strives to help the community by volunteering at local charities.

    Cons

    Internship program structure could have been better. There were days where I had nothing to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dedicate more time to interns and make sure they have enough work to do. Dedicate projects to interns and have them work more with the departments.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price

    Pros

    If you are driven and are willing to take the initiative, TRP will definitely help you pursue opportunities within the firm. The company provides great training opportunities. The corporate training courses are beneficial professionally and personally. They definitely provide some of the best benefits too.

    Cons

    Honestly, I've never really had a bad experience. Sometimes the moral of the departments could be negative, but i feel like you have to factor in individual attitudes as well.

    Former Employee - Solutions Analyst in Owings Mills, MD (US)

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and beautiful,wooded Owings Mills campus with onsite cafeterias and fitness center. Friendly employees with some great underlying talent.

    Cons

    Talent not recognized if it doesn't fit in exactly with management styles. Good starter company to learn the basics, but don't stay too long, you'll stall out your career. I waited too long to find that out. As the saying goes "You don't leave a company, you leave a manager."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and never forget Thomas Rowe Price's principle of "Take care of your customers and they will take care of you." The mission is becoming diluted and personal and divergent missions have taken over.

    I have been working at T. Rowe Price full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Many very nice people to work with

    Cons

    Management in many business areas consists of clicks of like minded people that do not recognize those outside the click as having any value. This results in many single-minded decisions made in a vacuum. It also results in poor management perpetuating itself.
    Leadership is largely absent in many areas. Leaders focus on their own career goals and make no attempt to get to know those who report to them or learn what experience or strengths they already possess.
    In the business areas I am familiar with, there is no concern or effort expended by management to solicit career goals, develop skills or utilize existing skills.
    Producing consistently great results only serves to advance the manager's career goals. There is little or no reward for consistently achieving outstanding results and reviews
    Although T. Rowe as a company is ethical, many managers are not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do 360 reviews on all managers at all levels. Don't sugar-coat the results by just moving managers around. Be truly committed to making T Rowe a well managed company at all levels.

    I worked at T. Rowe Price full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked here from 2008-2010 during the recession.

    If you could network well and avoid the politics, you did well. The firm was pretty stable. We didn't take as big a downsize hit during the recession compared to other finance firms. Plenty of opportunity for overtime pay.

    Cons

    Sometimes too much politics. If you aren't careful you can get type-casted in a negative way and your opportunities will be limiting.
