    Pros

    Great people and atmosphere, that respects individuality and all that this brings. Hard working and "can do" workforce that help each other. Approachable, experienced and lean hierarchy. The leadership are very genuine and fair.

    Shame it is in such a congested area of the city.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a more modernised and better positioned HQ.

    Pros

    Working with exceptionally smart, gifted people who want to share their knowledge and experience to help others grow.

    Hours can be long as there is so much to do, but hugely rewarding when this results in achieving a personal or business goal.

    Pros

    Great culture in relation to work life balance and being offered investment where the ROI stacks up . None of the drag you experience working for vendors despite the size of the company .

    Cons

    Benefits package could be better in terms of pensions and sick pay but understand why in this day and age it isn't .

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving the business plan as its clearly working and creating the right environment for people to excel .

    I have been working at SCC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Yes, SCC has it's challenges but tell me any role within any company that doesn't have challenges at some point. My personal experience with SCC has been that if you put in the commitment and effort then you are respected and supported. I have latitude in my role that enables me to balance my home life with a young family that cannot be monetised. There have also been two family emergencies which needed me to take time out - my manager and the company asked no questions and asked for nothing in return.

    Cons

    SCC is, like a lot of companies, being challenged as it adjusts to economic and industry changes. Corporate support for newcomers could be better but this is countered by the willingness of seasoned team members to help individuals. If you want to be spoon fed and walked through every part of your role then this probably isn't the company for you, but if you embrace it and put the effort in it can be rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Employees genuinely believe in this company and want it to succeed. Frustrations that naturally occur could be reduced by increased communication and explanation. Skip level meetings would help engage staff and increase belief that commitment is being recognised.

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

    Pros

    Whilst working my notice period at my previous employer I'd read some of the reviews on here and to be honest it really put me off joining, however I'm really pleased that I did join. The office is nice and has a decent canteen. People are easy to get on with and work with and there is plenty of variety to the work too. Management are supportive.

    Cons

    Pension is minimum. You have to bring your own cups and milk. There are not very many windows in the office.

    Pros

    The Offices are quite impressive and modern and there is a good vibe. Most of the people are very nice and this makes all the difference

    Cons

    To my surprise there are not many cons to working here and the only one I can think of maybe is the location of the offices but a small price to pay

    Advice to Management

    Value every employee as an individual.
