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

    Pros

    SCI really does care about their employees, clients and families...they really do. I just came on board and I am very impressed with the organization as a whole. The corporate culture is just what I have been looking for. Managers are very skilled in their field, highly compassionate, motivators and are open to new ideas, they are truly servant leaders. My recruiting team is the best - lots of brilliant minds and caring teams. Management is very easy to approach and communicate with. Their open door policy is admirable and they prefer to promote from within. I feel like my work has a special meaning here and I make a difference. I am able to take time off from work when I think it's necessary. This is a thriving industry with lots of room for growth.

    Cons

    Parking lot -

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, it keeps the turnover at a minimum.

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

    Pros

    -People don't leave jobs, they usually leave people. I have stayed with SCI for almost 7 years primarily because of the strong, positive leadership.

    -They do what they say

    -Company actually follows core values (respect, integrity, service excellence and enduring relationships)

    -Compensation opportunity, especially in sales! Very rewarding $

    -Work feels meaningful

    -Advancement opportunities

    -Senior leadership actually cares

    Cons

    It's not for the faint of heart. We work hard! Especially in sales, it is not a good fit for everybody. You must be able to balance care and compassion with hard work and drive.
