I have been working at SHRM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great benefits and some great front line workers

Cons

Extremely top heavy. Upper management should attend some HR classes. I have never seen such poor HR practices. They say culture matters but their actions do not match their words. Lots of clicks in upper management.

Advice to Management

Listen more to your employees and your members.

    the employees are friendly and professional individuals.

    Too much spare time. Employees look tired most of the time. Smoking is allowed right outside the entrance. no professional attire required. It's a laissez-faire environment..

    Advice to Management

    Encourage staffs to dress professionally and stop smoking on the premise.

    Cons

    Politics
    Nepotism
    Silos
    Brown nosers and bed fellows rule the organization
    People who have been with the organization for more than 10 years seemingly are protected regardless of attendance, job performance or bad attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    Politics, favoritism, and limited growth opportunities are the biggest impediment for managers and individual contributors.
