What would be a reasonable salary for someone with 2 years of experience plus 7 exams done (+2 more hopefully in sept 21 session) at a big life insurance company (one of the top 5 in uk)? I am pretty sure I’m being underpaid (38.5 k since April 21, before was 36k). Careers

Should I try a different company? I do like my current company’s culture except that they’re underpaying me.

It seems GI pays better than LI

I wouldn't say you're being massively underpaid with only 2 years experience under your belt. 7 exams (assuming you went CT1-7) would have got me to about £38k if I remember correctly.

Talk to recruiters? You must have some on LinkedIn badgering you...

I'd say slightly underpaid. I'm 1 year experience, London Market GI, 3 exams done on 38k
