    Current Employee - Financial Advisor in Roseville, CA

    I have been working at Principal Financial Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Everything Principal sells is top notch. Their own products or their outside network. The mutual fund family is excellent, life products are great, disability products are the best on the market and are widely sold by independents. 401k platform is the lowest cost on the market. Great benefits, corporate culture is excellent.

    Cons

    This industry is not for everyone. You need to have a 3 yr plan to make this job a career. If you do not have the backbone and connections to get you through the first 2 years, have a backup plan if the time comes to go elsewhere. Training of ok, but if you need help, like most of the companies in this industry, you need to go get it. Management will not come to you.
