    Bias gone wrong

    Nov 13, 2022 - Division Executive 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The mission is good overall.

    Cons

    The extent of gender, age, and race bias in the organization is so rampant that you suddenly believe it’s a different era. For me specifically, I operated in a role I was passed officially by due to the “gray effect.” A man only 4 years older than me was promoted simply because he looked older. While I functioned in the role, he was the public figure for it all. Additionally, I observed others enter similar discrimination until I left as a direct result of the bias.

    Pros

    On the IT side, you have many options to advance. If you're willing to put in the work, you can be quickly recognized and given the ability to fly.

    Cons

    Limited spots to move around. Some departments can get you stuck in a role permanently.

    Poor culture, sexist pay, brow beating

    Oct 6, 2022 - Funeral Director/Embalmer in Allentown, PA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Higher management has a clue about the funeral business and our needs in regards to serving families.

    Cons

    Horrible, toxic culture and cult like meetings & communication. If you didn’t fall in line with having your time and labor exploited, you were gas lit, made to look like you couldn’t handle the work, blocked advancement, sexist remarks and uneven pay from a regional manager who was a complete narcissist who can’t even call or communicate to anyone in a timely manner bc he doesn't care about anything than keeping his job practicing nepotism. Low pay, low pay low pay. Among the lowest in the industry. You’re expected to join quarterly sales dinners that feels like a cult. Don’t trust any one in positions of management in this company. They’ll throw you under the bus so quick to make themselves look better.

    Misdirection

    Nov 3, 2022 - General Manager in Longview, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The money and 8-5 hours were nice.

    Cons

    Whenever there is upper management there will always be misdirection. They tell you to run the company as if it was your own but will change everything that you try to do. Do not get me wrong I enjoyed my time there but in the same breath it was frustrating.

    My experience

    Nov 9, 2022 - Family Service Counselor in Miami, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you work smart and hard, the sales jobs can be lucrative.

    Cons

    Sales candidates should also "interview" the manager during the interview process to see if they are fair, honest, have good EQ, and will offer support when needed. Managers tend to just focus on their own sales quotas and forget about the individual salespeople.
