What line of insurance are you interested in?  Sales?  Claims?  Health and Life?  Auto and Home?   

I work in Auto Casualty claims And could give some insight, but it really depends on what you are looking to pursue.

DH works in insurance! He works in auto damage management, which would be a pretty huge jump! What do you want to do with insurance?

@soontobemrsm11:  DH works in auto damage at one of the VERY big companies, and says 99% of his job is fighting with people, and the remaining 1% is traveling/meetings. He works from home, and travels to manage his 8 auto damage adjusters (generally winthin two hours of travel).

When there’s a major event (like Hurricane Sandy), he gets called to “Cat Duty” (Catastrophe Duty), and it gone from one week to one month. He gets a MAJOR compensation for them, though. And there’s ony like 2 a year.

He goes to one or two meetings a week, and generally works 50-80 hours a week. On the bright side, he’s salaried at 80K+bonus+Cat Duty

That being said, he has worked with four women in the last 6 years, and three of them quit within a few years. Auto damage is a real sausage fest, and most people quit in the first year or two! It’s people yelling at you all day long about how their ’92 BMW is TOTALLY WORTH $16,947, NOT THE $599 YOU’RE TRYING TO GIVE ME FOR IT.

OP, I work for an insurance company that provides insurance to other businesses. I am in administration though, and I can tell you that the salaries in general are fairly high across the board here.

@soontobemrsm11:  He works in management… Starting salaries for auto damage (at the company he works for) adjusters is like 45K plus overtime. His next promotion is only a 5% raise (and he gets a 2-5% raise every year), but the one after that includes bonuses between 30 and 100% of his salary!

But as far as he knows, any supervisor/manager positions and higher are EXTREMELY well-paid… Mostly because of the incredible stress!
