    I worked at Principal Financial Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent, though not outstanding benefits; Fairly stable company; Their public facing image is terrific, very community minded, etc - don't seem as compassionate internally . . .

    Cons

    Training was non-existent; position was presented as one thing but in truth was very different; very indecisive and out-of control management; focused totally on short-term results not the right thing for customers; a lot of back-stabbing low end managers trying at all costs to rise above one another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some maturity in the management training processes. Don't reward those that just shift the blame to others.
