    Pros

    If you love actuarial science, this is the place to be. The atmosphere is relaxed but still serious when needed.

    Cons

    No db pension plan. Pay is decent could be better could be worse. If you do your actuarial exams it is totally worth it.

    Pros

    People are all very open and will share knowledge and experience with you. It's a great environment to learn from all levels within the organization. RGA is very focused on the development of its employees.

    Cons

    In the Toronto office it can be difficult to move up in your career since the office is small and majority of departments reports into the St. Louis headquarters.
