    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Principal is a very conservative and ethical company

    Cons

    I was downsized because Principal exited the Medical Market, along with about 1500 other employees.

    Advice to Management

    I believe we should have stayed in the medical business for at least another year. It was a bad idea to be the first carrier to exit the business because of Obama care.
