T Rowe Nice, that philosophy permeates through company - people are willing to jump in and help. If you come in from another company where this was not the culture it will take getting used to but it is greatly appreciated. People want to help, people want to get things fixed, and people want to help you succeed.
The management team is strong and competent - how many other companies can make that claim? Managers truly care about their employees and work to help them succeed - even if it might not be with that existing team.
While it is a serious financial company there is space to grow and innovate, it is not staid and button down, it is very much a place where you can grow your career and climb the corporate ladder.
I'd highly recommend that a job seeker get to know what T Rowe Nice is all about.
Great work environment, excellent work life balance, definitely a work-hand play hard sort of philosophy
Challenges to move out from under older backend technologies
Help Desk full of Contractors trying to earn limited full Time spot
Help Desk Associate (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – September 12, 2017
Help Desk full of Contractors trying to earn limited full Time spot. Environment is a little cut throat, with employees trying to throw others under the bus for a full time position that isn't available. They find reasons to get rid of contractors, so that they don't make it to the two-year mark and HAVE to hire that employee full time.
Can be a tough culture to fit in with, you have to really try hard to get to know other associates. People are quite lovely once they warm up to you, but that takes more time than previous job experiences.
My time at T Rowe Price has been well-spent in learning new consulting skills and building better relationships.
I worked in a mostly self-contained role that required little manager supervision, but detailed business requirements. This is partly where things were unsatisfactory. Often I felt disconnected from the people that I needed important information from.
While it is a very amicable culture, there is a general "do just what you're told and not much more" type of feel to the everyday routine. Innovation is cheered, but generally slow to happen here. Too much depends on manager approval. At least, this was often the case within the enabling functions.
Nevertheless, I have enjoyed the challenges presented and having a good work-life balance and have added to my perspective as a professional.
Harmonious culture, Solid compensation and benefits
- Ability to work remotely a few days during the week - Consistent about creating and updating a professional development plan - Generous salary/bonus, 401k & Healthcare benefits - Great opportunities to learn a new skill or receive training for your current role
Great atmosphere & friendly co-workers!
Too many team meetings and ridiculous org changes.
This year I had a contractual job at T Rowe Price as a Senior Reporting Analyst. It's a good company, everyone I worked with was professional. If there is a downside to the company, its the sheer size of the organization which can make you feel disconnected.

Nice environment to work in and a friendly culture. Not much room for advancement but a decent place to work. The company seems to work hard at making their employees appreciated but are not very forgiving for errors or unexpected life circumstances.

unlike most other western companies, TRP is very oriental in its company culture. People including senior managers often work long hours extending well beyond the regular working hours even when the work is not hectic. They dont provide laptops or encourage work at home even if you are a senior manager.
The company is very well managed, there is a good orporate culture and people are usually very friendly.
Free lunches and coffee, nice location, good hike trails within campus etc.
Long hours, multiple bosses to respond to, non linear org structure.
