    I worked at Principal Funds full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, great colleagues, and a flexible work/life balance.

    Cons

    Management tends to have a micromanagement style. Lots of politics and a culture of a good ole boys club.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more autonomy and trust they will do the right things.

    I have been working at Principal Funds full-time

    Pros

    Internal/external teams work well together. Sales campaigns can be crafted to suit individual territories.

    Cons

    Management gets in the way with additional goals which can block sales but make management look good.

    Advice to Management

    Believe what your salespeople tell you they need to do to make a sale. That is what you hired them for after all.
