What is it like working as a Human Resources (HR) Generalist?
Human Resources (HR) Generalist in Novi:
"Working for the Employees."
Pros: I like being here for the employees, getting answers, resolving issues, providing them with the best representation of the company that I can possibly give.
Cons: The company is known for not always being generous with employee benefits and compensation. For instance, they have a Tuition Reimbursement program but is mostly in name only. It takes effort to be approved for it. Also the company pays for coffee but employees pay for sugar and cream.
Employees have left due to feeling being underpaid as well as having managment that doesn't listen to them or welcome advice on how to make things work better.
