I have been working at Principal Financial Group as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

As an IT Intern I got to work on real projects in many different fields. They also held an intern Code Jam (similar to a hackathon) where teams of interns competed to create the best web app. Overall great learning experience

Cons

For interns, it is difficult to get time to view other business units/positions. This would be helpful for young professionals who is not sure what they would like to do for a full time position.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work but keep in mind after College it can be difficult to know exactly what career path an individual would like.
