    I worked at Security National Financial full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time with SNFC until it was time for promotion. They offered to promote me but pay me far less than the man doing the same job. I was a longtime, loyal employee until that experience. It was completely insulting.

    George Quist passed away. His son and grandsons are now in charge. It is not an improvement.

    Cons

    The company only values its male family employees. The only female executive is a relative. She is good at her job and loyal to the company but has vice president title when her brothers have/had President titles.

    Advice to Management

    Promote and value employees other than family members. You are too big of a company to have this level of nepotism. Promote women (other than family) to executive positions and pay them appropriately. Provide competitive salaries and benefits.

    I worked at Security National Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mostly good people, good benefits and family over work attitude from the middle managers.

    Cons

    Management not forthcoming about where you stand. Mgmt may ask you to put something together, but if they don't like it, you will need to change it. if you don't you are not a company person and you may be asked to leave their employment, especially if you are middle mgmt.

    Be careful this is a family run company, even though it is publicly traded, so a lot of the decisions are made with that in mind

    Lower on the pay scale.

    Advice to Management

    Accept that your employees may have insight to help you stay out of hot water, even if it makes the company look bad in the short run.

    Pros

    If you like a challange - you would fit in.

    Cons

    Mid level leadership is blinded by fear of losing jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Let the team grow into success. The people you hire know where they are and it will help to adapt to the surrounding areas other than Utah.

    Pros

    Mainly 8:00 am to 5:00 pm work days during the week. Work one Sunday per month, and two Saturdays per month. 2 weeks paid vacation each year, paid sick time, 401k, good co-workers for the most part.

    Cons

    No follow-through with client families for the most part. Everyone is given a task to do each day, and that's all they are supposed to do for the most part. There are some exceptions but they have departmentalized our funeral home so there are groups of us that only focus on one thing, nearly 100% of the time. This does not allow for variety and makes it more like an 8-5 job instead of a place that used to be enjoyable to work.

    Advice to Management

    Humble yourselves and listen to the employees. Without employees, companies would be nothing. Eventually, if things continue in this direction, our competitors will be where we are at now and we will no longer be one of the big dogs in town. Ask clients what they'd rather have, then go with that. If it weren't for our clients, we wouldn't have jobs.
