    I have been working at SCC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I'm really impressed with SCC. It's had a really good year and continues to grow and develop. With the company's growth and successes has come my own. I have been promoted and had a pay rise in 2014. This is how businesses should be when things are going well for them. The restructure has been very positive and ensured that the right people are in the right places, getting rid of the non-performers. SCC is highly recommended

    Cons

    Not many. The main office is tired looking and the employee benefits need adjusting, other than that Snr management are responsive to the change and you can see the improvement in how SCC now operates and performs. Leadership is much stronger than in past years due to changes in management from the restructure and new people. Overall, I am very happy

    Advice to Management

    Company values could do with a refresh

    I have been working at SCC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A successful and hardworking culture. Willing to invest time and effort in to doing things properly. A high number of staff are long serving (10+ years). Down to earth people, who are themselves in the workplace, but still work hard. Takes corporate social responsibility seriously.

    Cons

    Policies and premises could do with being modernised - however, this is being worked on.

    Advice to Management

    Stay open to change, and the additional success that modernisation of the business can bring. Definately going in the right direction.

    Pros

    Built on a culture of mutual respect, SCC has been a fantastic place to work. I have been encouraged to work my own way, and have been given any resources and support needed in order to perform to the best of my ability. As much as I enjoy my job itself, the people are what make working for SCC so fantastic. It's not just management that are supportive, but peers too. We often collaborate to drive results and I have never found myself in a situation where no support was available to me. It is definitely an environment where you succeed based on your own merits, so if you are willing to learn and work hard, this is definitely the place for you.

    Cons

    The car park gets very busy.

    Pros

    Genuine internal movement opportunites. I moved internally to another department at SCC after 9 months in an administritive role. There are always opportunities available

    Cons

    Currently cons is non applicable

    Advice to Management

    Upper management are extremely approachable and obviously hand picked which I have found isn't always the case at multi national private companies. SCC's support to local causes and Charities is also supported by the Management.

    Pros

    I have been with SCC for over 25 years as have many of my counterparts and many of the staff working for me also have 10, 15 and 20 years tenure. If your personal ethos is to work hard, be totally committed to a company and the customers you serve and have the highest levels of integrity then SCC is a great place to build a career. Additionally apart from the first role I was employed to do with SCC every subsequent role has been created for me as part of a significant career path progression. I am proud that many of the staff I have employed over the years have in turn become senior managers within SCC and of those that have left they have succeeded in their new companies.

    Cons

    SCC has been termed a marmite business to work for. If you want to work hard and be accountable then that's the culture within SCC if not you don't like marmite.

    I have been working at SCC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Contrary to what some others have said, I have, and still do, enjoy my time at SCC. I've had the opportunity to work with a broad variety of customers and managed to move up through a couple of positions. I do feel that my voice is heard and thoughts are valued, and this has helped me see change in the areas that I can influence, and working in the services business, the changes can be rapid, which make for a dynamic business.

    Cons

    It can be like a lot of large companies in that if you don't ask, you don't get. I've heard of people not get training, but I've never had training turned down if I could qualify why I need it.

    Pros

    Been with SCC for over 10 years. Staff friendly and management approachable. Open to change which has been more observable within the last couple of years with the investment within the company. If you want to get on the opportunities are there especially with the renewed focus on people development.

    Cons

    Premises in Birmingham are tired but things are changing.

    Advice to Management

    Stay open to change and continue the investment in the people development strategy,
