Is it a human resource etiquette for the whole department to have no character… & robotic. The director has to see everything. The senior generalist is not able to make 1 decision down to the giving a phone number to the city administrator. She was shaking when he asked her question.& then told me when the city administration comes in i need to panic. I’m not use to this work atmosphere. I’m use to confidently working & able to address u comfortably. Also everyone jumps up anytime the door open

That sounds so stressful! I'm not used to that at all. There is red tape here but definitely no fear about addressing directors or senior members or city officials. We have a pretty good working rapport.

i am pretty good at my job but am not seeing fairness in pay and can't stand my department (cool kids club/good ole boy club). I am being considered for a HR Analyst role as we speak with potential of making $20k more (HR and Talent Acquisition are separate at my company). Is it worth the jump to HR/Benefits or should I just get the experience and eventually make more money in Recruiting? I have a general background in HR but find recruiting to be super easy, to be honest.
