    I worked at SCC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable and large company with multiple locations across Europe so wide choice of work areas if you have the language skills.

    Cons

    Still have absolute minimum pension provision. Recent reviews show that management are taking no heed whatsoever of the workers gripes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on burying your heads in the sand but eventually you will either change or fail. Only sycophants need apply here.

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

    Pros

    Help the company a few times avoid looking silly by being forced to lie to customers by making up random excuses, actually i used against SCC to book my due and usually over due annual leave!.

    Cons

    *Loss of life
    *No career progression
    *No pay rises
    *Demanding management
    *Unrealistic targets
    *Bully counseling meetings
    *Demand overtime (3 hours in this time they will not pay out as they say its free traveling)
    *Trackers on the vans, they watch your every move
    *Trackers on the PDA systems, they watch your every move in your house!
    *Management use their trusted random excuse/lie generator to lie to customers
    *Tax dodging
    *Plenty of dissatisfied customers
    *Plenty of dissatisfied current and ex staff
    *Not a single person happy in the company (below management)
    *Make a noise even within reason and watch you get slowly dragged across the floor to the point of no return
    *Impossible to book annual leave even 12 months in advance.
    *Company just cannot keep good staff
    *Dead wood staff only now exist, unlikely to get a job elsewhere
    *SCC prey on untrained people who usually work in lesser paid roles and take advantage
    *You;ll be doing more than your contract states, in fact at least 3 job roles in 1 go on 1 single salary
    *got to use your own printer, own ink, own paper, own tape, own glue and OWN TIME to submit overtime/expenses
    *SCC say if they ask you to do overtime you cannot get paid for the first hour even when your onsite working!.
    *Lots of dodgey OTL's and OPS managers, fighting to keep their jobs by undertaking ridiculous tasks

    I have seen it all, i wish i could help unsuspected people avoid this shambles of what they call a company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing and say goodbye to your dignity and forgiveness from the almighty.
