    I have been working at Principal Financial Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I'm working with pgs pune from more than a year and I'm having a list of pros for this company. 1. Work life balance. 2. Good pay 3. Great work culture. 4. Nice salary hike. 5. Leave policy. 6. You can explore latest tools and technologies here. 7. HO team will treat you as of their team member and not any offshore team. 8. Free cab service :p 9. No weekend work. ( Although it might vary as per your team, since last one year I have never visited office on Saturday/ sunday) I would like to recommend this company if you get a chance to work here. It's gonna be a very good experience for you.

    Cons

    The only bad thing, I can see here is less onsite opportunity. If you are having onsite aspiration never join this company.

    Advice to Management

    Please improve onsite opportunity for employees.

    Pros

    Good place to work. Good work life balance. Some department has good quality work. Chances to learn new technology if such a demand from your project. Free Cab facility available.

    Cons

    More into process. Management will overlook your work and always keep on telling you about your negative points. They keep on asking to suggest some innovative ideas, developing some utility, giving some sessions etc. etc. Only these things matter & not work. Some projects don't have much work.

    Advice to Management

    Please be fare while assessing any resource.
