Perhaps Dr No can get to the bottom of it, if he so desired.

In consulting with a couple of exams in a high COA area, sure. Though I'm going to take a wild guess that West Des Moines doesn't have Seattle/NYC/DC/LA/SF-level housing costs. Taking a look at the Milliman Glassdoor page (I know, I know, they're all their own practice so this jumbled average is somewhat meaningless) it looks like a lot report about 25-27-ish per hour for actuarial interns, which would comfortably put someone in the ~40 range for overtime.

It's not my practice, and it's none of my business. Literally.

OK. Just that the whole internet (literally!) is getting a funny vibe about your company based on this one unusual posting. I'd hate to see that rub off on all the branches.

in nyc, above $30/hr is not uncommon for act sci interns.
I made more money as an intern in nyc than as full time outside, but ofc as an intern you dont have the other benefits.

It won't.

My guess is that there's something that's being missed in this posting (such as what's been said already, that this is earmarked for someone specific - I mean, what intern candidate is going to have all of those desired skills unless they're looking for someone specific).

Beyond that, I would hope that intern candidates would dig a bit deeper (for instance, noting that on multiple occasions in this thread and elsewhere I've clearly stated that each Milliman practice makes hiring decisions independently from one another). That may be naive on my part - okay, it's surely naive.

With that said, if you get a sour opinion of our practice as a result of the partial information presented here about (about another practice in another discipline) and you choose not to apply for one of our internships as a result, then that's our loss and we'll move on. I've been working on hiring here for almost fourteen years now, and on the list of reasons why people have turned us down (and there are many), this wouldn't be a very good one.

OK, I'll go with "Some Drake U kid has the job, but the rules are you have to make an opening public, so that is why this 'job opening' exists."

That's my read, too.

"This position will have a primary location of Philadelphia or Seattle, however the expectation is that the work will be nearly 100% onsite at the client in West Des Moines, Iowa. No travel or accommodation assistance will be provided. Nights and weekends may also be necessary as client demands dictate."

Also - not every 3.8 GPA is the same. Maroons.

You could tell me this was six figures and I'd still say go **** yourself. If you get anyone that desperate, you deserve them.

I interviewed another office - grilled for six hours to be an analyst (way overkill), got a crappy offer despite it seeming like a sweatshop. Was not desperate. Got a nice raise at my current place.
