Pros

The money can be really good. It is 100% commission so it’s up to you. You have to be willing to work long hours 6 days a week. Helping families is very rewarding if you believe it what your doing. Benefits are good and there is adequate time off if you can take it.

Cons

The sales team is so micro-managed. You are asked by multiple people multiple times a day, what do you have, over and over again. You are treated like grade school children not like professionals. It truly doesn’t matter how much you sell, it’s should’ve been more. Some managers responsible for training are untrained themselves. Turn over is high because lack of confidence in leadership, lack of appreciation, frustration with expectations and what is actually possible, and constant high pressure tactics on sales staff.

Advice to Management

Train management before the are made responsible for staff. Take the thumb off and allow people breathe, it’s a pressure cooker always on high. Have people who actually work with the systems and materials provide what should be valued feedback, not managers who don’t work with the materials or haven’t for years if ever.

Pros

Benefits are okay. Decent time off granted. Health insurance is expensive but is decent coverage.

Cons

They pay a lot of lip service to how much they care and appreciate their employees, but it's just a lot of talking the talk. A lot of passes are given to the sales team even if they make some really big mistakes. Everyone who isn't sales is expected to clean up their messes. The pay could be better for the amount of work they expect from you, and they don't even pay counselors a decent wage to make up if they don't hit certain targets. No one should ever have to take home a $20 or $50 check for working 40+ hours for two weeks. They're not taking enough precautions to protect employees and they took forever to even have any sort of adequate response until things got really bad. I'm sure a lot of my points vary from location to location, but this is what I have experienced as have many others throughout the company. It's unfortunate that a company that claims to care about the families they serve charges such high prices and doesn't follow through on taking care of their employees.

Advice to Management

If you care about your employees: 1. Pay better. Whether it's SCI or somewhere else, I think having a pay structure that focuses largely on comission and leads to people taking tiny paychecks home to try and feed their families isn't right. 2. Don't hold everyone else to a high standard and expect us to clean up everybody's mess. Yes, other employees in other departments are there to provide support, but key word is support. We aren't paid enough to be doing other people's jobs for them because there's no repurcussions for making huge mistakes. 3. Consistency. Communication is poor, and that starts at the top and trickles down. If upper management shows inconsistent communication, then everyone else does too. 4. When someone does something that is unethical or against company policy, you need to take actual action, not let it slide because of sales.

Decent time off granted.
