Which one is more good:-
1. Working as an individual HR in Pvt. Ltd. company (without any HR team) OR
2. In a team of HR?
I am working as HR Generalist in an I.T. company, there is only one HR here and that is me. I face lots of issues on daily basis.
Kindly, share your valuable opinions.

No such ground rule is there.
it depends on you-attitudes, mindset etc.
Facing lot of issues also means you learn a lot.
See it in positive spirit.
A group of HR people can be a learning experience .
But birds of same feather can also have its own issues.
One might well remember:
"Our environment,t he world we work in and live is a mirror of our attitudes and expectations."
Whether you work in a group of HR people or work alone as HR,it does not matter.
It is always about your attitudes, your willingness to accept challenges and how you relate to people and how you face issues.

You have compared individual HR against Team HR. But then what is the constitution of the team? Is it headed by Manager?
It is always better to work under proper HR manager. I say so because HR Manager will teach you hundreds of practical aspects of HR that you will not get these in any book or website.
As a person steps into professional life, it is Manager that grooms juniors or develops the personality. Now you may say that not all managers do this all capable of doing this but then that could be individual exception.

In life if you want to become independent you have to become dependent for some time. In short it is always better to work under experienced HR manager for atleast 2 yrs and then you can join a company where there is no HR function. But no problem you can still cope up. Take it in a positive manner. If you can work in a company where there is no HR function you will learn to work independently and after gaining sizeable experience you can expect calls from reputed companies and also your value will also increase because you had experience of working independently.
Dear Richa,
1. There is no such a rule as per Law it's depend on company strength.
2. If you are working in a Team it will be more and more better, it's seems like you are in initial stage of your career so you need to get more and correct knowledge/learning for avoiding wrong practice.
And i suggest you please do not give more time in that organization where only single HR person is working, specially when you are in initial stage of learning however i am not saying that you need to quit this organization but do not give much time,
However by the help of this organization's experience you will get more opportunity for enter in new organization because mostly organization do not give entry for freshers.
So please get some work experience and after find better organization where you can learn.
Regards
Chandra Prakash Singh

I appreciate every one's valuable time to write against my query. I would like to confirm I am working in an I.T. company(Pvt. Ltd.) which consists of 50+ employees. There is only one Director of this company, and one senior person is there in finance. I am HR Generalist here and rest are employees of team PHP,Android,B.D. SEO,WEB Designing and Mobile.
There is less supervision of my work. Although Director sir keeps eyes on me. I am trying hard to get a job in "limited" companies where a team of HR works for employees. I have completed one year only as an HR. I am willing to learn a lot. But as I raised my query, I am unable to do so as I am working individually.
Well, it looks tough to get a job in "Limited" company,here at Noida as I am not being selected due to less work experience.

Dear Richa,
I fully agree with Mr Diwakar and mandy , it is always better to work under senior manager who can guide you how to tackle the problematic issues . i strongly feel that you should work in a team or under able guidance from manager who has come to this position with great struggle.
thanks

Yes. I am looking for job change. I wish I will get it soon where team of HR will be there.
As you had stated in the response that you are trying for a change but unable to get it due to lack of experience, that itself should spur to learn as you work until you get a 'suitable' or more 'comfortable' environment. Though there is no doubt that you need to have a mentor/manager to guide you in the initial stages of your work life, it should not be a stumbling block nor stop you from learning through your daily experience and going through the available content on the websites. Choose what best suits your company and for you and move accordingly. Try to come up with procedures and ask your Director if you could do some courses that will help you and the company in return. It is good to keep the job until you get a better one, than crib and be unemployed. Be positive and learn to listen to issues of the employees and see what are the best possible solutions within the limitations. At the end of the day you have to overcome being dependent though it has become baptism by fire in your case, mind you, you are not alone in such situations. Just keep working on the areas and enjoy your job, wherever you are right now.
Thank you for motivation. I am looking forward to it.
