Looking for advice. Currently work for top 5 insurance broker on the P&C agency side as a commercial account manager. I’ve been doing this for about 15 years. Next year, I will graduate with my MBA. My question is how do I transition to the company side and what roles should I target? Bonus points if you can tell me the minimum salary for the role you suggest!

Look at positions that require an MBA on the company side? Network on LinkedIn. Ask your managers about how to switch over to the corporate side.

I've seen many opportunities for folks to switch over to the corporate side from the agency side. And some from corporate to agency.

Also, what it comes down to is what are you interested in doing?

I like the suggestion of LinkedIn, and I think you should aim for senior roles, minimum salaries will vary though...I don't know how much of a difference MBA makes to do that versus experience

Were you looking to becoming a risk manager?

I just transitioned from the carrier side to corporate risk

I just received an offer for a job I am very excited about. Base is within reasonable range and I will likely go back and ask for a bit more there.

My question is: are those percentages typically negotiated or set based on position?
