SHRM Doesn't Meet Its Own Expectations

Non-people Manager (Current Employee)

ProsOverall, people are pleasant

Reasonable hours for most employees, mostly 9-5 (place is mostly empty after 5:30)

Helping HR professionals is is relatively interesting work

ConsEveryone below the level of director is in a cubicle, and cubicles a cramped together in classed "cubicle farm" design, meaning that the work environment is always noisy and often with no window view.

Extremely limited opportunities for promotion, even for workers with excellent performance evals over many years.

Compensation and benefits are market/average for small/mid professional association. Few innovative work/life opportunities (off-site access to systems mostly denied, even for professionals whose work is dependent on these systems -- very retrograde.

Senior management team, led by a relatively new CEO, fixated on internal strategic process (heavily dependent on external consultants, to the exclusion of fixing practical and obvious operational flaws. Over $1 million spent on consultants during year with a pay freeze for employees (2009).

Advice to Senior ManagementTry management by walking around (MBWA), rather than lecturing during mass assemblies on the virtues of the new five year plan.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
