Pros

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is a great place to learn a lot about a lot of different things. They have divisions ranging from customer service to events to publishing.

Cons

In some divisions or departments, there is virtually no worklife balance. It all starts at the top. At the time I worked there, the top person had no life.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees - all of them.

    I worked at SHRM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They offer great benefits so that they look good to the HR community they serve.

    Cons

    Too many people have been there for too long which causes people who are hanging on to get their pension, which then stops innovation and fresh ideas. Many leaders are allowed to behave inappropriately because there is a culture of looking the other way for those who have been there a long time and who have become "friends" with the right people. It is very political and getting promoted occurs with time put in and playing the political game and not skills or outside experience. There is little to no internal training and developing people is not a priority. You have to be willing to assimilate and "play the game." There is a lot of disparity from department to department.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking the other way and allowing tenure and friendships to cloud your view of bad behavior by leaders. Develop your leaders and staff. Practice what you preach. You spend so much time and effort in making the organization look good externally to the HR profession you serve to the expense of your own internal employees. Worry less about being sued and worry more about employees. There are a lot of great employees who suffer in silence because the pay and benefits are so good. So it is a good formula for retention, but not for the high performers. The high performers will and have been moving on, what are you doing to keep them?
