    Pros

    Flexible work hours, excellent benefits, great work environment, and opportunities for growth. They also embrace technology and business partners work closely with IT to produce solutions that fit the need of our customers. And finally there are lots of different ways Principal reaches out to the community. Many of our casual days require us to pay a small amount of money that goes to charity and many times we are presented with different causes to support. It's good to know that my employer has an eye on the whole community.

    Cons

    Change is something you need to get used to. If you are someone who does not embrace changes with a positive state of mind then this may not be the company for you. However, in the years I've been at Principal Financial the change is usually a good thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communication. There are so many new things happening at Principal that it gets hard to keep focused on the overall goal. We get frequent reminders of our policies and goals as a company, and when something isn't going right it doesn't get shoved under a rug. Instead the management steps up and helps us get back on track.
