I worked at Principal Financial
Pros – The benefits are among the best I've seen. Product line up was good and getting better.
Cons – Found HR to simply be a tool of management and not responsive to employee needs. In my personal case, management re-wrote an annual review to better serve their needs. I brought this along with evidence in the form of e-mails and other dated and signed documents to HR, but could not get a return call. I understand that I work in an "at will" state and can be let go for any reason, but was sad to see the lengths that management went to to fabricate situations and re-write history to make their case. That is not the way that you treat any employee, much less a top producer in your division.
Advice to Senior Management – 1. Make sure that HR looks out for the employee's rights 2. Lying and fabrication of stories should not be tolerated in any employee.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
