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

    Pros

    I'm really impressed with SCC. It's had a really good year and continues to grow and develop. With the company's growth and successes has come my own. I have been promoted and had a pay rise in 2014. This is how businesses should be when things are going well for them. The restructure has been very positive and ensured that the right people are in the right places, getting rid of the non-performers. SCC is highly recommended

    Cons

    Not many. The main office is tired looking and the employee benefits need adjusting, other than that Snr management are responsive to the change and you can see the improvement in how SCC now operates and performs. Leadership is much stronger than in past years due to changes in management from the restructure and new people. Overall, I am very happy

    Advice to Management

    Company values could do with a refresh

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

    Pros

    A successful and hardworking culture.
    Willing to invest time and effort in to doing things properly.
    A high number of staff are long serving (10+ years).
    Down to earth people, who are themselves in the workplace, but still work hard.
    Takes corporate social responsibility seriously.

    Cons

    Policies and premises could do with being modernised - however, this is being worked on.

    Advice to Management

    Stay open to change, and the additional success that modernisation of the business can bring. Definately going in the right direction.

    Pros

    Genuine internal movement opportunites.
    I moved internally to another department at SCC after 9 months in an administritive role.
    There are always opportunities available

    Cons

    Currently cons is non applicable

    Advice to Management

    Upper management are extremely approachable and obviously hand picked which I have found isn't always the case at multi national private companies.
    SCC's support to local causes and Charities is also supported by the Management.

    Pros

    I have been with SCC for over 25 years as have many of my counterparts and many of the staff working for me also have 10, 15 and 20 years tenure. If your personal ethos is to work hard, be totally committed to a company and the customers you serve and have the highest levels of integrity then SCC is a great place to build a career. Additionally apart from the first role I was employed to do with SCC every subsequent role has been created for me as part of a significant career path progression. I am proud that many of the staff I have employed over the years have in turn become senior managers within SCC and of those that have left they have succeeded in their new companies.

    Cons

    SCC has been termed a marmite business to work for. If you want to work hard and be accountable then that's the culture within SCC if not you don't like marmite.

    Pros

    Been with SCC for over 10 years. Staff friendly and management approachable.
    Open to change which has been more observable within the last couple of years with the investment within the company. If you want to get on the opportunities are there especially with the renewed focus on people development.

    Cons

    Premises in Birmingham are tired but things are changing.

    Advice to Management

    Stay open to change and continue the investment in the people development strategy,

    Pros

    Due to the companies strong reputation the customer profile and opportunities are all enterprise level offering the chance to work with some of the latest technology products and vendors to deliver complex and challenging solutions. This results in a rewarding and varied career with the added benefit of working alongside some of the industries top technical professionals in their respective sector.

    Cons

    Engagements can be geographically diverse due to the ever expanding customer base, so there are inevitable travel requirements and this can also involve extended periods of time spent away from home.

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

    Pros

    Senior management are largely very able, friendly and approachable
    The vast majority of staff are highly skilled, extremely capable, and bring huge value to the business
    Constantly looking to build, recruit and innovate
    If you work hard and are good at what you do there will be ample opportunities for progression and pay rises
    A good natured and helpful environment to work in
    The business does a lot for charity with frequent fundraising and is very keen to put something back into the community
    A 'can do' team of people who go above and beyond for their customers

    Cons

    The location of the main Birmingham office is poor with not enough car parking to accommodate all regular staff and as such those of us who can work from elsewhere often choose elsewhere
    Rewards and perks are definitely geared more towards sales than any other area
    Several internal processes don't work well and need smoothing out
    There are some internal politics although this seems to be easing
    The 1% company pension for new starters is woeful and can put off good people from joining

    Advice to Management

    More recognition is needed for deserving staff outside of the sales force. All departments are needed to make the business successful and this should be remembered and reflected when it comes to things like top performer awards and company funded events
    The existing pension scheme needs to be looked at urgently

    Thank you for your review.

    Indeed, the Top Performers incentive is aimed specifically at our sales teams, but we have recently relaunched the business-wide recognition scheme as SCC Champions... More
