Please help me choose a job: WTW vs. Munich Re
 
I got few entry-level offers, and I am finally deciding between these two. Salary does not matter, so please just look at the opportunity / future growth and give me an advice. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

1) Willis Towers Watson - P&C

2) Munich Re - Life (reinsurance)


Which company and which industry - do you think - will be better in the long-run?

What kind of job in WTW?

Reinsurance work is generally more interesting imo.

Well the WTW - P&C sounds like it's P&C so I would pick that one.

Abelian Grape 12-06-2017 05:56 PM

Nevermind, just saw that the Munich job is life. Yeah, go with WTW.

We're saying P&C over life

P&C covers a whole bunch of different types of business. Actuarial foundations of life insurance is also captured in P&C with things like Workers' Comp.

P&C also gets paid more.

Yes so why do you prefer P&C over life? I am very new to these two industries, and all I know is that P&C would require more exams -- so what is so good about P&C? Thank you in advance for your input!

Life is basically just that: life insurance.

Property and Casualty spans a whole lot more, from car and home insurance to aviation, cyber, and surety bonds.

WTW is consulting right?
That's also a big factor to consider
