There have been times where some of that experience would have been helpful, so I try to learn as I go but I wouldn't want to do it full time.
Right, I will love the dynamic aspect of my current work.
I have never worked in pricing/reserving so I have no basis to really compare...maybe those are dynamic as well. Idk.

If i recall correctly, youre working as a data scientist? Or a modeler?

I'm not quite sure. I got put on this one project where I'm building pricing models for a personal lines firm so that would be like a predictive modeler in an actuarial department. I'm also on another where I'm scoping the requirements for a software product that we're trying to sell - so that's kind of like a project manager, and another thing I have to do is some kind of resource-gathering project which I'm not sure what to call but it involves me determining how much time, money, hardware, and staff we'll be needing for the second half of the year - which my boss needs in order to convince our investors to keep funding us.

I also do client-facing sales from time to time. So right now it's a mix of analytical and administrative work.
