I have been working at Service Corporation International full-time (More than a year)

Pros

SCI is a company aimed at making lives better. The people who work for the company, especially those in the field (ie, funeral homes, cemeteries), are compassionate and provide good feedback on services provided. I didn't realize when I took the job with SCI that I would consistently receive good feedback from my peers and my internal customers (field associates). I also believe my ethics are upheld by this corporation, not only through the company's core values, but through our practice and messaging.

Cons

Communication within the company could be improved (ie, structure, resources, etc). I am still a bit confused as to how the field (ie, funeral homes, cemeteries) is structured. The intranet is useful but difficult to use. I don't use most of the links and applications within the intranet because they are not described well on their landing pages and/or I don't know where to find what I am looking for.

Advice to Management

Communicate how the company is structured and what resources are available internally to new hires. Create a guide to the company's intranet that is easily found on the intranet's homepage. Rename markets to better reflect the geographic regions they represent. The arbitrary names are difficult to discern to corporate associates or associates in other markets in other states.

    Pros

    Meeting with families in their time of need is an extraordinary privilege.

    Cons

    This publicly-owned company does everything it can to take compensation away from its employees. There is no longer even the base hourly pay, just a draw against commissions, which aren't easy to make, and are constantly diminished. Changing criteria for defining an "imminent" contract is just one example. A company proud of its "Dignity" brand doesn't seem to know the meaning of that word where its employees are concerned.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the hard-working employees as if they are worth something.
