    this has nothing to do with Ethics. don't tell me that just because you're a good worker, doesn't mean that when your role becomes redundant, they'll just keep you on payroll just because you're loyal.

    And HR are usually the last ones to be asked to go. Someone got to switch off and lock up the door.

    Maybe the company's work-life balance is 99% work 1% life?

    One "highly respected" wedding photographer in Singapore went to jail because he fondled a bride's breasts when he was alone with her.

    Hopefully he would regain his high respect after coming out of the jail.

    He now shoots weddings with a hand tied behind his back for the sake of the bride's safety and his own good and freedom.

    A HR's job is to protect his/her own job but not yours.

    To treat employees just like numbers is unethical. So do you think the employee should take reciprocal approach and treat the company like cash cow ? And jump whenever there's a better chance?

    Most companies don't do that. They've come to realize that they need to groom people and train them for lower staff turnover rates.

    But when there's a retrenchment, they definitely have to identify who're the ones contributing little or none. It's not easy.

    As for me, i think that Starbucks is good. Been here for years.

    HR is just another profession, like accounting or marketing, don't really see why you're asking if its good for girls? I have seen many guys doing HR too.
