Default Actuarial program changes in the recent years

I'd be interested in gathering information about how structured actuarial programs in the US have been changing in the industry over last couple years. I think various factors (Insurance industry profitability, oversupply of actuaries, competition from DS, etc) could be driving changes. Please try to be unbiased when making selection.

Examples include:
Increase/decrease in study support ($ or hours)
Increase/decrease in exam raises, salary structure, promotion potential
Change in policy regarding SOA/CAS meeting attendance and conferment ceremony
Layoffs or downsizing in actuarial job function

Please indicate how the change has been overall in the poll, and feel free to add specifics if you feel comfortable doing so.
