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

Pros

If you can handle the pressure and attacks the pay isn't bad

Cons

If they ask for your honest feedback and they don't like what they hear they will find a way to get you out. Their expectations for quality quantity for new employees is not realistic

Advice to Management

Stop having such controlling people and treat us like adults
