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

    Pros

    I worked at SCC for over 5 years in a management position. In that time I did have reasonable progression and pay rises but you had to fight tooth and nail to justify it and also make yourself indispensable before even asking.

    Some improvements to facilities in last 12 months such as reasonably priced cafeteria and refurbished office.

    Cons

    It is a private company with very few people at the top. Despite rules against having spouses or family working at SCC it is a family company with 4 members of the board related to each other.

    To me it is a very egocentric organisation and often it is not whether you are right but if you do as you are told, however illogical or pointless the task transmitted to you.

    If you join SCC hoping to make waves or a name for yourself your career will be short lived. I have seen very good people high up start to make significant improvements only to be sacked with zero notice due to personality clashes with a director (imagine The Dictator film when people disappear at a whim).

    Often customers are kept at arm's length and may have to shout the loudest for attention (especially dealing with DCS) as it is an MSP and there isn't the resource to manage all customers at once (most of time this isn't a big deal).

    Whilst I have made some good friends at SCC I am not optimistic for it's future in this state. A sale to a larger company would be an unsurprising move given the future.

    The opening of SCC Vietnam is to my mind clearly to position SCC away from the EU regulations of Romania to save costs in the future.

    Advice to Management

    You all know what you're doing so if you're happy with it just keep in going. However I'd be careful around senior management and never trust them as there is likely a hidden motive.

    Nothing to say to senior management as they are set in their ways and have their profit targets to meet. My opinion is not going suddenly change years of habit.
