I worked at Service Corporation International full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Training is fantastic. People are great. The field is amazing and the services they provide the community are invaluable. They are great at giving opportunities to be part of a dynamic team ( if they get their leadership right). Area is great.

Cons

Seldom any upward mobility. They like to hire from the outside instead of looking or developing who they have on the inside already.. Leadership is hit or miss.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leadership is key. The legacy of any company begins and ends with your leadership. The new leader is dynamic. They inspire, motivate, personable and experts in what they do. It's a hard mold to fit but well worth molding your managers around this criteria.

    I have been working at Service Corporation International as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. For most part, excellent work environment, and opportunity to advance. Facilities are excellent and make for a pleasant work place.

    Cons

    In the field, long hours, holidays have to be covered, a lot of detail which can make for stress. You only have one chance to get it right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have done a good job of increasing stockholders equity and expect that stock prices will continue to rise.

    Former Employee - Was In IT in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Was In IT in Houston, TX

    I worked at Service Corporation International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) Good bonuses to those in Management (not all employees)
    2) Pleasant personalities of team members
    3) Free Parking

    Cons

    1) Very serious management problems within IT! The VP of IT is a major micro-manager and uses verbal abusive techniques of Management.
    2) VP of IT has obvious favorites. If a manager is not one of the favorites (usually Indians due to their wide use of Offshoring work to India instead of America) then forget a career path. It will usually end in being "laid off" of being forced to "resign", even up to the Director level.
    3) Marketing is as vicious with Politics as IT. When the two mix, what out for your job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit using the bonus as a "carrot" to force employees into totally submitting to the VPs without being able to give a true opinion when asked (technical or otherwise). A bonus should be a reward, not a political tool as is commonly used at SCI!
