    I have been working at SCC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good people get recognised and do well
    Flexible company
    Care about customers
    If you fit in its a good atmosphere
    Being a large family business is quite unique

    Cons

    Sink or swim, limited training
    Silos in the business are a pain to navigate
    Fear culture in half of the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tackle the silos, it upsets staff and looses customers

    Train people! Sink or swim is a stupid business strategy

    Reward people, sales do OK but reward other areas of the business because they work real hard
