Default Does Liberty Mutual pay higher than average?

Liberty Mutual posts salary ranges in all their job listings.
https://www.jobs.libertymutualgroup....ctuarial/685/1

They always seem kind of high to me, though usually still within DWS ranges.

I am wondering if these are normal salaries by job level or universally agreed to be on the high side compared to other companies (including other companies in the Northeast).

The actuarial salaries seem reasonable to me, neither high or low. Data science salaries are definitely low. Boston and Seattle are not cheap.

If I remember right their just-got-ACAS couple years experience was something like 140k. And like $115k+ for 2-4 years experience pre-ACAS but 5 or 6 exams.

Not totally unreasonable but it seems on the high side to me, especially for everyone and not just really top performers.

I wonder if their bonuses are on the lower side. The above figures seem more reasonable for total comp.

Of course I could be more underpaid than I think I am.

It's totally fair given COL but I have lived in high COL areas and not seen it impact pay proportionally.

This one for example. Minimum 2 years experience and 5 exams (not ACAS). The low end of the range is 132k. I don't make that in base salary and I am close to FCAS.

I would say they pay higher than average. Where do most of their actuaries work?

This cost of living calculator could help you compare your salary to one of those similar positions. I am surprised at how high the cost of living is in Boston. https://www.bankrate.com/calculators...alculator.aspx

Seattle is less than 3% lower according to this tool.

Both a lot more than Chicago.
