    I worked at Principal Financial Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great co-workers. everyone was really friendly and good at their jobs. I was given a lot of responsibility and feedback on my work.

    Cons

    It took them 6 weeks to get my security clearance set up. That's fine for full time employees, but not for an intern who is only there for 12.
