    Stability and Great Benefits

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.

    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.
