I have been working at SHRM

Pros

The work can sometimes be very meaningful. Most of the people are great. Many departments take part in the flexible schedule program, allowing for comp days on Mondays or Fridays. There's a massage therapist on site once every other week (and SHRM subsidizes a bit of the cost), there's a yoga instructor on site twice a week (and SHRM subsidizes part of the cost), the DAC (Diversity Advisory Council) holds quarterly events and has brought in some great speakers in the past (like Allyson Robinson from the Human Rights Campaign).

Cons

There's been a lot of change lately: three chiefs (CEO, COO, CMO) have left SHRM in the past 6 months, the strategic business review has brought an upheaval to the organization as a whole, and many employees have been moved around to different cubicles, floors, buildings because of org chart changes. More emphasis is placed on revenue than is warranted for a non-profit, and meeting the numbers seems to be the primary goal (even though SHRM is a membership organization) - even if there are not enough resources in place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hiring the right people should be paramount. Offering the salary that they deserve is a must. Pay close attention to employee engagement.

    I worked at SHRM part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Culture is quite friendly and informal plus new-age work place with flexible work hours and a lot of freedom to be yourself. I personally liked the work from home funda

    Cons

    Since it is non-profit it pays less and has no monetary benefits. Strategic leadership was not very bang on in their execution

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain the culture but provide a little better salary and include a sense of ownership in all.
