JMO - how true that is.

AIM - you've asked about IB vs. actuarial consulting all day. Seems like you need to figure out your priorities. I've worked for a top tier consutling firm and now a top i-bank, if you need more information, feel free to message me.

I left the actuarial world over a lot of reasons - exams, pay, qualitfy and variety of work, general interests, quality of employees/management. My best advice to you is to interview with both sides - find the people you click with better and meet with the senior people and see where you want to be in a few years, talk with the juniors, see what they are doing and what interests you more.

But remember that in interview everyone lies!! so take everything you hear with a grain of salt and be prepared to read within the lines.
