New York, Illinois, Connecticut, Texas will be quite a few though. With that being said, if the map continues to be successful I will throw some money into the pro version to get more layers. That way I can put different types of employment on different layers (which would be nice since you can hide layers).

As far as the discussion on listing how many actuaries work where, it would be of little hassle for me to mark places with 10+ actuaries (listed in the directory). I'm assuming these places will have openings on a regular basis and may be a good starting point for entry-level candidates. Does anyone think a different number would be a better reference? 15, 20+?

Any other feedback is appreciated!

Maybe 10-25 to indicate a medium-sized office, and 25+ to indicate a large one?

I'm not sure of the distribution of office sizes, so idk how many would fall in each bucket.

Also, idk if this has been mentioned, but you can add info about the office by taking the Primary Area of Practice and Industry fields from each person's page and showing each unique one in that office.

Yeah, I'm sure I'd be able to figure out each places "specialty" this way, but this turns into a good chunk of work. I think I'll leave this up to others to help with once the map is finished. Like, "Hey! Mercer is Pension!" Then I can manually go to the map and just switch any Mercer place over to a the color associated with Pension.

I would think Newark, NJ would need a pin being the home to Prudential and all.

Hey Riley, I'm not sure but I think some New York companies are missing. Maybe one or two in Texas, too.

Hey Riley, I think some companies in California are missing, also I think Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York might have a couple missing.

Oh and don't forget about North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington. I noticed that there are some missing from those states too!

Serious question: Are you removing any Universities that happen to have actuaries on staff as professors?
