    Pros

    As an intern in the IT field at Principal, you get an extra perk of a $1,000 scholarship for the next semester following your internship. Any Principal internship position also provides you a summer living stipend for summer interns, which is very helpful. Another benefit of interning at Principal is the ability to work flex hours.

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons. Principal treats their interns really well.
