I have been working at Principal Financial Group

Pros

Great company and support. Independence wihout being on your own entirely. Great group of producers and advisors to lean on and learn from.

Cons

More than half will burn out or give up. Toughest job ever. Do not try if you are not commited.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get long time producers involved in training earlier on. Focus on investment knowledge for new producers as well as insurance.
