SHRM is a really well run organization with a caring, dedicated workforce, and a member base that is equally as passionate. Work-life balance rules. I always feel absorbed and energized by what I do. SHRM really wants to make the HR profession the best it can be because HR is critical to the success of workplaces everywhere. SHRM is, bar none, the most civil, fair and transparent place I have ever worked. Success is always celebrated, and people's contributions are recognized. The benefits are terrific.
Because it's such a stable, nice place to work, turnover is low and some coworkers tend to be change averse.
Advice to Management
Please maintain the strong benefits. Don't tolerate weak performers. They can drag down your flexibility to promote or reward your best.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at SHRM.
Interviewed with four separate people - the recruiter, two directors, and chief. The recruiter called anda asked me to come in. It was set within two weeks. The entire interview with all four lasted about 1.5 hours. I had to take an assessment online called the Predictive Index. This was part of the hiring process.
