    To advance in the HR role you need to play office politics which is very unfortunate

    Pros

    Pay is good
    Benefits & relo are good
    Salaried people development is decent

    Cons

    Office politics in the HR function is extremely limiting to advancement.
    Overly sensitive to ethnic diversity rather than evaluating candidates true ability and skills
    Close minded to other employer's work experience in consideration of your advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop valuing purely IP work experience when considering advancement opportunities for your employees. Not everyone grew up at IP and you need to think a little more about that when looking at your internal promotions.

    Pros

    Benefits are great, and salaries, though very uneven, usually averaged to industry standards. I was always able to work with my management, which wasn't always the case with previous companies.

    Cons

    Communication skills with upper management reigns supreme, often to the detriment of having or properly using technical skills. (This was true in my department, but certainly not in other departments.)
