    I worked at SCO Family of Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    you work with some great people and clients. SCO is a not for profit organization good benefits.

    Cons

    I worked for 7 years straight with no raises, Not for profit so they always say things like - We worked hard to keep cost down, however we decided not to lay people off but at this time we cannot provide a raise. Not even the COLA was given. Basically you lose people and get a raise or you stay with your current salary and no raise again. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find other funding sources in order to accommodate employees. Management is quick to reclassify positions and change job titles in order to pay top administrators more money but not line staff.
