    I have been working at Principal Financial Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great FTO program, flexible work schedule, generally dedicated co-workers, interesting work, genuinely cares about employees

    Cons

    Its an old, big finance company. Things are slow to change, lots of senior people riding their way to retirement that cant be bothered to drive meaningful change. Pay below market.

    Advice to Management

    Perform realistic salary comps, and be willing to bend outside of rigid pay grades. Several people in my department left for 20-30% increases. Thats how you lose good people.
