I feel that 'HR Generalist' is only a mirage as in no big Company does one get to do all the functions underlined so deeply in the above posts.
Over a long period of time in one's career one might get exposure to many fields within the vast gamut of HR but in practicality differnt individuals are taking care of activities like policies,T&D, R&R, Employee engagement, payroll, C&B etc.......that is to say that it is not practical and not even happening in any big Company I know of that 1 single 'HR Executive' is taking care of all these functions simultaneously.
A person may become a 'HR Generalist maybe 10 years down the line when he is at a very senior position but in the short run it is really only for name sake that one may truly call himself a 'Generalist' in the exact meaning of the term.
And.....neither is it easy in this field especially for freshers.....atleast the first 2 years are gruelling.
