Current Employee - Corporate Tax Accounting Intern in Des Moines, IA

I have been working at Principal Financial Group as an intern for less than a year

Pros

You get to work with senior staff and most of your project are usually done by your co-workers. By this I mean that its great some you get to work on some real world projects.

Cons

I think salary and compensations are the only negative aspects of Principal FInancial Group. The rent cost in Des Moines is oretty expensive and their housing allowance covers only month and half of the lowest renting place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think it would be better to increase either housing allowance or hourly wage
