Either one is very good.  It depends on the people you are working with.  You want to make sure that you will get to work with senior people who really know what they are doing.  I believe that actuarial work is growing more rapidly in the general insurance field than in life insurance.  However, general insurance is starting from a smaller base.  Further, I understand that the need for actuarial is greater in general insurance outside the USA.  Also, health insurance, which is pursued by both general insurance companies and life insurance companies, is the fastest growing field in the USA.
