Advice to Management

There needs to be an online anonymous tip line/suggestions box for Carriage as a whole. Take the time to sit down with employees and provide feedback. Do some training with your Managing Partners on how to actually manage people.

How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at Carriage Services?

Pros

Great benefits, complete autonomy for Managers.

Cons

Because of the complete autonomy and lack of involvement on the local level there is very little accountability. HR does not follow-up with the Managing Partners responsibilities to their employees. Employees have to request annual reviews and pay increases are based on their standards for each location. Translating to no increases if you aren't increasing your sales each year. Hard work and loyalty aren't rewarded. No visits from upper management. Managers do not need management experience and are not provided with training in the areas they are lacking.
