    So I was reading the other thread about working in HR, I was wondering if anybody here works in it and what the experience it is.

    Im a recruiter but I want to make a move into general HR. Are they the most hated people in the company? and are they really like 90% women?

    Hopefully that 5.7 inches will be enough if this is true

    Not the most hated, in fact usually fairly popular seeing they are almost all young women.

    I was an agency recruiter made the move to corporate recruiting. Its night and day. Make the move. It is 90% women. In my office there are 15 employees, I'm the only guy. Don't move into general HR, no money. Stay in recruiting but work just for the company itself.

    It's difficult to get hired into HR as a white male.

    Yes it's dominated by women. Most are old/married. The hot chicks tend to be in marketing at my company.

    It depends on the company. A lot of men in the quantitative stuff like compensation, executive compensation, clinical strategy, etc.

    The more touchy feely or employee interacting positions are female though. Our entire employee relationships dept is female, for example.
