Move towards commercial insurance- that’s where the money is. Try to specialize in a specific sector like Energy/ Cyber . Suggest getting experience for 3-5years at a small firm where they have time to train , then move to Aon, Marsh , Willis… if your salary isn’t increasing at Aon , then time to move to Marsh etc… NEVER burn your bridges/ everyone knows everyone in the insurance industry.
