I have been working at Principal Financial Group

Pros

Nothing as such. Only good pay on initial recruitment. Good life balance.

Cons

Candidates referred by employees are getting selected even though they are not possessing required skills and good candidates are thrown out just to make room for references. Spouses and friends are being brought who are actually not worth than just trash. Specifically BA team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look into the selection process and HR TEAM. Make the right selection otherwise it would be just garbage company.
