I worked at Service Corporation International full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working at the corporate headquarters in Houston, I was fortunate to work closely with the senior leadership of the company. These individuals for the most part are some of the hardest working driven people I've ever worked with. They care about their employees and consumers. They pay their executives well, and promote from within. The 401K plan is one of the richest I've ever seen. Extremely generous!

Cons

Work life balance is challenging for lower level corporate employees. Upper level executives enjoy much more latitude in their schedules (do as I say, not as I do). Turnover is high in the Accounting Department due to the intense workload and management. Most departments operate independent of one another, and communication isn't managed effectively until issues reach a crisis level.

Advice to Management

The caliber of corporate and regional leadership are some of the best. The magnitude of initiatives you take on and the pace at which you do it is overwhelming to the field. There is no way they can deliver successfully on all you ask of them, and they resent you for it. More needs to be done to develop, promote, and empower your local talent. MFE is a great event, but there needs to be more intense, prolonged training for these individuals. One week events don't net you long term results.

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

    Pros

    The company is an industry that helps people during the most difficult time in life.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Pay not good, benefits not good, and management not the best. No growth or major ERP system. They do things very manual (old school).

    Advice to Management

    Employee moral is very low and turnover is high; consider what that can do to a company long term

    I worked at Service Corporation International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most people are really nice there and it can have its moments of feeling like a real company family. It is hard work at times but can be fun

    Cons

    It is who you know here. You know someone high you will get in faster and stay longer even if they are not working hard. They take advantage of some people in certain positions

    Advice to Management

    Care and treat your employees with respect and show them about how u care about how good a job they are doing.
