    Its a great time to be at Carriage

    Jan 19, 2023 - Director of Support 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Carriage offers an environment where you can make your own path. If you perform at a higher level they will work with you on your career path. The current culture at Carriage is second to none. Focusing on the autonomy of each individual location and how they can be the leaders in their market. Great example of a bottom up organizational chart. The Houston Support Centers only focus is being a resource for our industry leading Managing Partners.

    Cons

    With all companies you will find things that you may not like, but those seem to be minimal at Carriage.

    A company that matches my own values and interest

    Nov 2, 2022 - Talent Development Partner 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Absolutely the best culture I have had with a large company. All employees make a difference and real partnership is not only created but sustained throughout the portfolio. You always wait to see what it's going to be like after the "honey-moon" period of joining but at Carriage that is just who we are, Driven by People, Inspired by Passion!

    Cons

    The Death Care industry is unique, and it is not for everyone.

    Pros

    Nice people, nice place, caring

    Cons

    Not enough business to justify the number of commissioned sales reps, when you start making money it seems like they would bring in more people so you couldn’t hit your bonus. Making money off of people that lost loves ones isn’t really fun!
