Pros

The ability to have a better understanding of the law and how it affects the general public. Since the laws of insurance is constantly changing, you are recommended to be fluid in this industry.

Cons

There are no many positions that are available. It is also difficult to switch from one field of expertise to another field even if we are dealing in the same industry (ie. move from claims adjuster to an underwriter is difficult at best).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management styles could use new techniques and modernization.
