Mark's Story On Culture

As an actuary, I've led a pricing team that handles new product development. We price new products, balancing competitiveness and profitability. I have an insatiable appetite for learning and a desire to understand things outside of the work I'm doing. I'm willing to question the way things have always been done and challenge the status quo. Those are just a few ways I add value to The Principal.

My past roles have included rotation as an actuarial student, where I worked on pricing our products and tracking claims costs by market from year-to-year. I've also completed my FSA (Fellow of the Society of Actuaries) designation, thanks to the company's great actuarial student program.

I have appreciated the supportive work environment, development opportunities, flexible work schedules, a total compensation package and endless work perks. It's hard to imagine finding a better place to work.
