    Pros

    Good company with lean management and minimal bureaucracy; decision-making occurs at the right levels

    Cons

    HR does not pay attention to pay equity based on TOTAL compensation, including overtime, license premiums, special projects pay, bonuses, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to equitable compensation. For example, supervisors at SCANA are often managers at other companies; managers at SCANA are directors elsewhere.

    I worked at SCANA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and pay are good for the area.

    Cons

    The hours offered to new employees in the contact center suck. You'll get stuck on a second shift with no weekends off. They make you go thru 3 months of training before you find out your shift. People are constantly watching you like a criminal. Although they tell you can advance to something other than the contact center, don't hold your breath waiting.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    After six years, the best "pro" I can think of is leaving. The company tries to develop a "family" aspect with their employees, but if you do not have your "good ole boy" ticket punched, forget it!

    Cons

    Too many to list, but here is the biggest:

    The company management frowns upon (and often hinders) employee self-improvement. The expectation is for the employee to sit in his or her cubical and do his or her job. If the company wants the employee to advance, a manager will approach the employee about a new position. An employee asking about advancement or even (The horror!) bidding on a posted position is seen as being "upity." ("Who does he think he is applying for that posted job!?!?! We have so-and-so already earmarked for that position! Now we have to go through a costly and long-term interview process!")

    I even had negatives on my performance reviews because I applied on outside positions.

    And if by chance an employee actually succeeds in getting an offer for an advancing position, he or she can bet his or her manager will block the transfer.

    The only way I was able to advance from my position there was to leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    It's 2017! Stop managing like it's 1960.

    Pros

    High demand, competitive career opportunities. Work environment is friendly. Opportunity for growth, networking, and training/development opportunities. Great for interested candidates ranging from just out of college, up to professional senior staff.

    Cons

    The only con is, this is a local company only based mainly in South Carolina and parts of North Carolina and Georgia, and limited opportunities to work from home, so you have to be willing to work in one of the 3 states.

    Advice to Management

    Continue in what you do!
