Good place to work, some problems

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsHR is a great field to be working in right now. It's never boring and always changing. Bright, energetic employees who have been there for a long time. Work for a great manager, and you will be very happy.

ConsAs with most organizations, your direct manager and director will determine how satisfied you are working at SHRM. It has many great managers, but it doesn't adequately deal with the bad ones. Also, as the organization has grown, silos have sprung up, thwarting information sharing and collaboration. One department often doesn't know what another is working on and is even working at odds with another department's goals. The recession has also dampened morale and created budget battles. The last CEO was a poor fit for the job and the culture. I hope SHRM can find a new, great leader and repair relations with its members and the board of directors.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote from within, especially at the very top. Listen to the members. Don't take so long to implement feedback from employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
