Very busy workplace with daily mandatory overtime I learned about mutual funds, and how to set up 401 k's for small businesses. I learned how to process contributions and distributions. Had to stay up to date on constantly changing IRS rules an regulations.

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.
Solid work environment, great people, opportunities for continuous learning
Compensation not competitive for lower level associates
RPS Transaction Associate (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – February 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.
Great benefits, welcoming and tolerant environment, good people.
Heavy mandatory overtime during certain parts of the year, outdated technology and systems
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.
Conservative culture, but overall a good place to work
Data & Process Manager (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – August 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.
Participant Service Center - Licensed Specialist (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – December 10, 2016
Fantastic company to work for, great benefits, limited upward mobility in FL office. Typical day consisted of fielding inbound phone calls of clients and prospective clients to bring assets into T. Rowe Price
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.
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, CO – March 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.
Good retirement benefits
Stale, stagnant. Could use a youth movement in business planning
QA Manager and Trainer (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – October 25, 2016
Good place to work but very little communication through teams. There is little to no communication between teams working on the same project. There is even less communication between management to the teams.
Company taught me a lot about corp culture - great place to . I learned alot about how a company can teach you about life. Nothing in life comes easy... you must put in the work to achieve your dreams.
Participant Service Center Associate (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – July 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.
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.
Good pay and benefits. Compnay s great overall. Business casual attire.
Long days sitting at a computer talking on the phone. The day isn't much more than that.
Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Owings Mills, MD – May 30, 2016
It was nice working with T Rowe Price. Warm Culture. Co workers were very helpful specially Manager. Though there is still some discrimination between contractors and Full Time but I didn't have to face this in my team. Team was supportive and helpful.
