Love T. Rowe Price!
Implementation Consultant (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COOctober 5, 2016
Best company I have worked for! Great work environment, co-workers, management team, and numerous opportunities for continuous learning, training, and education. Solid work/life balance as long as you were efficient and a good time manager. Easy to move up if you network appropriately.
Pros
Solid work environment, great people, opportunities for continuous learning
Cons
Compensation not competitive for lower level associates

Great company, stressful industry
RPS Transaction Associate (Current Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COFebruary 8, 2017
If you are an up and coming finance major then T. Rowe Price is an excellent place to work. They promote a healthy atmosphere of putting the client first and they go out of their way to give their employees good benefits and accommodations.

Unfortunately that is not enough to lessen the high levels of stress involved in the investment field. Between hard deadlines for trades and frustrated investors this will take a heavy toll on you if you are not a very strong willed person. Entry level is almost exclusively customer service phone positions and they can be very challenging. Luckily I worked through the tough times and transitioned to several other departments that all offer great skills and opportunities.

In short, T. Rowe Price is a great company that is admittedly a bit behind the times. You would be fortunate to work for them but just prepare for a very stressful environment, heavy overtime, and occasional weaknesses in leadership. The wages do not feel as competitive as they should but the extra benefits help balance it out.
Pros
Great benefits, welcoming and tolerant environment, good people.
Cons
Heavy mandatory overtime during certain parts of the year, outdated technology and systems

Decent company to start your career
Portfolio Accounting (Former Employee) –  Owings Mills, MDJuly 7, 2016
Advancement is more time driven than merit driven - regardless of your skill set, you will not be considered for a promotion until X months/years in your current role.

Work life balance was solid with relatively flexible hours and a decent company culture.

There is a lack of accountability though, so employees are able to skate by without any risk of punishment.
Pros
Work/life balance
Cons
Indifferent management, no merit based promotions

Great place to work, but pay isn't that great

Great benefits, and an awesome atmosphere. The management and compensation are lacking, and not up to par with other companies in the financial industry.
Pros
FSA, Aetna Insurance, and great work/life balance
Cons
Long days, OT required, frequent late shifts

PROJECT COORDINATOR (Current Employee) –  Owings Mills, MDOctober 9, 2016
Great company to work for with advancement opportunities and generous benefits. It can be challenging in the beginning to understand the IT infrastructure and to establish yourself. But the coworkers are very helpful.

Data & Process Manager (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDAugust 20, 2016
There could be more vision in terms of their strategic technology plan, but overall the firm is a good place to work. They have good benefits packages, and for the most part are good about work/life balance.

T. Rowe Price is an excellent company to grow and develop your skill and knowledge in the investment world. I highly recommend anyone who wants to start somewhere in the investment world to apply for T. Rowe. However, the company has a lot of catching up to do with industry standards and trends.

Investment Specialist (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLFebruary 20, 2016
Pros
great non-monetary benefits, easy company mobility, excellent work-life balance, and really nice people. overall, a really solid company to work for.
Cons
in order to move past a certain level, you definitely need a solid education background or significant professional experience. hard to break through into the trading environment, similar to many competitors
Advice to Management
take smaller bonuses and reward employees at the bottom making less than 50k a year. no reason someone should be making $10 million a year when others at the same company are just trying to stay afloat

Decent pay, good benefits, good place to start a career
529 Account Specialist (Current Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COMarch 28, 2016
Management is okay and stay off your back if you do what you are supposed to. Easy to slip through the cracks if you don't lobby for yourself. Management path is the best way to advance in other areas of the company- nearly impossible to get a promotion out of operations unless you are on the management track.
Pros
Good retirement benefits
Cons
Stale, stagnant. Could use a youth movement in business planning

Participant Service Center Associate (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLJuly 19, 2016
great company to work for. Really good benefits including large 401k contributions. Just have to be able to deal with many different projects and responsibilities at one time. Opportunities are there, you just have to go after and get them.

Great jumpstart into the financial industry
FINANCIAL SERVICES REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLMay 3, 2016
I like the job. Not a fan of doing the same thing everyday but if you don't mind talking on the phone to customers, and looking at computer screen while on a recorded line to ensure compliance then this job is nice. Not much room for growth though until you get your series 7. You get two 15 minute breaks a day and an hour lunch.
Pros
Good pay and benefits. Compnay s great overall. Business casual attire.
Cons
Long days sitting at a computer talking on the phone. The day isn't much more than that.
