    Pros

    Ability to work independantly and travel to different locations. I also enjoyed doing the reports due monthly, accounts payable and receivable. I enjoyed working with our customer base and being involved with the community. I enjoyed setting up events at our locations such as an annual Luminary Memorialization which helped support the Ronald McDonald House. The location was close to my home.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to manage many different Departments and work where a large corporation. It was difficult at times having a direct supervisor located within 100 miles of the facility.

    Advice to Management

    Always treat employees with respect. Sometimes you have to have faith in people and have higher expectations of them. You should offer an Education Benefit to promote advancement within the company.

    I worked at Stewart Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was only there for half a year due to a personal medical emergency, but would have liked to stayed longer. It was quite a learning experience, and the people that I worked with were good people. They do offer benefits like 401K and good health insurance (you have to pay for it), but all-in-all a good company, I believe. Sorry they got bought over by SCI.

    Cons

    The pay is not good.

    Pros

    Stewart Enterprises, Inc cared for their employees and was a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Executives gave into pressure and was sold to SCI. SCI is a big company which does not care for individuals and only cares about the bottom line (the mighty dollars) thus making workers numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Executives gave into pressure and was sold to SCI.

    Pros

    The company's mission is a noble one: to serve families at the most emotional and difficult time in their life.

    Cons

    Middle and upper management takes care of themselves, but does little to help out those on the bottom rung. Support to get your job done is minimal.
