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 Management

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 Management

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

    I have been working at Service Corporation International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The salary was reasonable.
    The parking was free.
    Training was paid for once a year.

    Cons

    Very dysfunctional management in IT (Information Technology).
    Only lip service was paid to data security in a public company.
     A fair amount of IT was outsourced to India.
    Generally the H1B workers were treated better than the actual employees.
    Age discrimination was common in IT.
    Regulatory requirements were routinely performed to the letter of the control (lip service).
    Audited by the IRS 7 years in a row for restating earnings.
    IRS request accounting data was restored from backups rather than from current data due to current data being constantly manipulated (without any controls).
    Middle management constantly hides issues from upper management.
    Over all “a culture of fear” from management.

    Advice to Management

    Mr Waltrip should fire all of IT management and start over.
