    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

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

    Pros

    plenty of opportunity to progress and be part of a successful business.
    SCC has gone from strength to strength since it went through a restructure exercise.
    This helped to sort the business out and got rid of dead wood within the business.
    SCC runs more effectively with clearer goals.
    I like the honesty of the senior management and the fact that they have addressed the issues within the business

    Cons

    Employee benefits need to improve
    More access to benefits
    Updating the facilities in Birmingham would help

    I worked at SCC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good culture - can-do attitude of senior management transcends overall business
    Reasonable career opportunities - although I was restricted to Birmingham
    Compensation and benefits - hard work is rewarded and there's plenty of variety

    Cons

    Not much in the way of training - not that my role really needed any but there's no clear training calendar or pro-active training schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was at SCC for over 3 years and have witnessed a greater senior management transparency and focus. Communication improved measurably in the past six months and the direction of the business is clear

    Pros

    SCC is a an evolving company that is slightly ahead of the curve. It is a comfortable place to be, full of nice people working in a range of roles - making meeting people interesting. From personal experience, there are good opportunities to progress, so long as you're willing to work hard and learn.

    Cons

    It isn't always as easy as it should be to communicate, business-wide. This can make it difficult to know what benefits do exist in terms of development and employee schemes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like the direction in which the company is headed - let's keep going that way.

    I have been working at SCC full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have worked for the company for 3 months. It is growing at such a rate, for the right people the opportunities for career development are unrivalled. There is significant investment currently being made both in technologies and people.

    If you are willing to contribute your ideas and hard work to a developing company and shape its future culture, it’s the right job for you.

    Cons

    Would not suit people who do not like change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with your policy to invest in leadership and people.
