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.

    I worked at SHRM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At the Director and VP levels and below the organization is focused on delivering on its promise to its members. Incredible focus and passion for human resources as well as the members. The Annual Conference is a powerful example of teamwork within the organization. It would be hard to identify a colleague who doesn't touch the conference in some way. As a non-profit it prides itself on running more like a for-profit business.

    Cons

    Rifts between the executive leadership and the board make the organization a challenge sometimes. It just depends who the CEO is and who the board chair is.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to value your employees. They're the best in the business.

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

    Pros

    Work/life balance
    Extracurricular activities like volunteering, holiday party, team building
    Onsite yoga, for a fee
    Onsite massage therapist every other week, for a fee
    Onsite boot camp twice a week
    Great location
    Onsite parking

    Cons

    The work is very repetitive year to year and there's not much room to grow. As a culture, there are too many meetings and too many decisions that are made by consensus. Very risk adverse and no room to fail. Some people managers need more training to be better people managers and help increase the engagement of individual contributors.
