Beth's Story On Leadership Support
As an IT professional, I have appreciated the support of the leadership team in allowing for continued change. It may be difficult to believe that can exist in a corporate environment, but at The Principal, I think there are a tremendous amount of opportunities to utilize new technology and creativity in software development with the economic stability of a global financial company.
I think the amount of time that our senior leadership team spends with the staff is a differentiator amongst companies in the Des Moines area. It makes our large global company have a small community feel.
