Principal Financial Group Employee Review

Outrageous expectations in a short time

I was one of the those picked up from Wells Fargo when the business was sold to Principal. The job itself is such that someone would need at least 2 years of training/development to get up to a decent level and we were given 5 weeks of extremely accelerated training and expected to be up to speed within months, which is my I and nearly everyone I went there with in my unit has since left the company. I'm sure other divisions of the company are better but this one for me was terrible.

Pros

Nice facilities, decent benefits

Cons

Far too high expectations, clueless management who didn't know how to do the work themselves, not nearly enough help available to learn our jobs.
