    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at S&C Electric

    Pros

    Gained useful knowledge in a different field of trade work.

    Cons

    Manager had terrible administrative manners. Unfair treatment between employees. Very disrespectful conduct.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to take more administrative courses on how to deal with situations instead giving complete attitude.

    I have been working at S&C Electric full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, easygoing managers

    Cons

    Not a lot of mentorship, frequent structural changes, focused on reusing old designs rather than developing new solutions, low pay for young engineers, not a great environment for young engineers

    Advice to Management

    You have to pay new grads more if you want to attract new talent. Stop using legacy products and develop new ones, because you spend too much money trying to design around old products that you waste time and money that could be used to make better, new products.

    Pros

    Great benefits, if one works hard gets rewarded well.

    The new CEO, does a good job but seems distant from employees on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Think a bit more outside the box and listen to employees a bit more.

    I have been working at S&C Electric full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits. Company encourages you to learn and will pay for additional training internally or externally, as long as you can demonstrate how it will benefit your career. Management has an open door policy and is always willing to step in and help when asked. Depending on the department, your hours can be flexible. The paid shut down for the last two weeks of the year is my personal favorite!!!

    Cons

    Very traditional. Work from home is not a thing yet. If you're not on the floor, you cannot wear jeans (probably the only company left that doesn't at LEAST have casual Fridays). Coffee is not free (which is a definite con in today's society). The pay grade appears to be lower than average. Commute Is always terrible going home, no matter which direction you take (unless your local).

    Pros

    Great culture, everyone is nice

    Cons

    None which is very telling.

    Hire more temp workers from other agency contract companies to give them equal chance to make a living and provide for their families.

    Pros

    Good company culture and benefits

    Incredibly old school company, with antiquated systems and procedures. Software is not a priority and treated as such. Remote offices are pretty much ignored.
