View Full Version : # of actuaries v. size of a company

A major part of the equation is the numbers of lines of business the company has Life, annuities, mutual funds, major medical, DI, LTC, Critical Illness, Med Sup, Home, auto & mulitply that by group & individual. These are usually all independent shops. Plus Life usually gets chopped up into subsections as well.
Also figure that at companies like Met those other companies included are also still operating independently and are multi-line.

I'm missing your point.
What is the indication to which you are alluding? Please elaborate.

Anything longitudinal? Perhaps these large companies are downsizing their actuarial departments.
Could you provide Best's ratings? Maybe there's a pattern of lots of actuaries and high ratings.

Oh, now I see your point.
(Op: Too much info, not enough punch.)
Anyone below average, realtive to compensation, in these companies should be concerned. With mergers, it becomes easier to let them go for legitimate reasons than to keep them for emotional ones.

Can I spare my job by voluntarily giving up my letters ? Not that I work for any of these companines, of course ... just speaking hypothetically. :smile:
