    Pros

    great history of service in the financial services arena, top 401k host in the USA, PFG has some great products

    Cons

    unbelievable regulatory burden that results in the typical employee spending a silly amount of time watching everything said, done or written with client interaction. this is common to most large financial services firms.

    Pros

    Good comp, but comp structure is not explained properly. Benefits are fair, but are very costly to the sales team.

    Cons

    Talk a big game about supporting the sales force and puts together a front of training, but at the end of the day, any issues are not dealt with and are just brushed aside as being part of the industry.
