    I have been working at Service Corporation International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I liked my co-workers. A lot of people in my department had been there for years, which speaks to the value of the company's work environment. I worked at the Houston headquarters. There was also a good work/life balance

    Cons

    Some challenges are the passive agressivness. The managers could be more direct when something is not to their liking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more direct. Compensation should be broughto closer to market rate.
