The team in San Diego is amazing. The Managing Director, Gary Lu, puts his advisors first and would do anything to help us with support. Having been with several other companies, Principal is the best out there. Great environment, awesome leadership and the best support in the industry!
It seems like the majority of the support comes out of the Irvine office, but the seniority and team to work with is in San Diego.
Advice to Management
The management team is awesome. Gary and Jeff are true professionals who dedicate so much time and resources for their advisors. Principal was rated one of the top companies to work for and I can definitely see why.

I applied online – interviewed at Principal Financial Group.
First round interview - Just asked about my resume, skills, why I want to work at Principal.
Second round interview - Went through my resume again but in more depth. Pretty much all behavioral questions.
The interview was pretty laid-back, not very stressful. I was expecting at least some technical questions, but I was pretty young and clearly didn't have the experience, and I think they realized that.
