PS Engineer (Former Employee) – North East – 6 February 2018
SCC is a family run business. SCC has a successful, long-standing management team. They have successfully maintained a 1970’s management culture of controlling employee behaviour through intimidation and fear.
The whole business is built in silos with conflicting objectives, everyone is defensive and a blame culture is prevalent.
Sales (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 20 October 2017
Worst managers/ Team leaders in the operations team ever. This team its not about what you know its who you know as long as your in it with the managers your face fits you get away with anything!!!!!. Not professional at all all from managers to team leaders, worst place ever would never recommend to any one.
consider carefully a job here ! i can only only speak for the managed services side ,warehouse environment .This large I.T. company is raking in record profits but is not passing any on to the lower paid worker ,there are employees who have worked there for years and not had a pay rise! ,they have also removed any perks that make the job a bit more bearable ,all take no give .
1 hour lunch break, there used to be 2 x 15 min breaks also but now axed.
Having only worked a short time here I found my work colleagues easy to work with. A typical day was dealing with telephone enquiries, keeping CRM system up to date and providing quotations to customers.
Video Producer (Current Employee) – Birmingham – 28 June 2017
A good place to start but it soon becomes apparent that there is little room for progression. The work is demanding and not particularly rewarding, it's no wonder the company has such a huge turn over.
A mostly positive view of the company until early 2017 when a sudden and unexpected shift has caused a massive downward spiral in job satisfaction, work ethics, productivity Etc... I currently don't receive a proper or full break if at all and my criticisms of this and the constant under-manning goes unheard.
Technical Specialist (Former Employee) – Nottingham – 11 April 2017
Depending on the project you get assigned too will greatly determine your thoughts about working here. You could end up traveling all around the country on a project with very little home life and doing work that you find beneath you ability. The pay is good and if you are located around the Birmingham main office then you have a much better chance of being exposed to more areas for advancement. The company management style is all about tracking your time about being able to bill it accordingly which can become tedious and puts more focus on that than your actual job. Immediate managers can forget about you if your on a customer site which isn't always a great thing. Overall be cautious and ask a lot of questions at an interview!
Good salary. Potential for career progression
Can be a lot of travel and long hours. Mangers not great.
Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 9 January 2017
There are so many rules and regulations pertaining to every facet within the office....almost ridiculous. I found the office environment very stifling and management had no real conversation with me even when I made polite requests....anyway this is my own opinion.

Secure and encouraging employer with training options
Finance Assistant (Former Employee) – Rykneld Primary School – 30 August 2016
School office work is a mixed and pressure varied with the added benefit of interaction with pupils, parents and outside agencies. Crucial to have a great rapport with colleagues as there is no time for personal differences, though human nature interferes sometimes. Need to keep a smile and a level head and the ability to prioritise on a daily basis. Being in a Learning Environment is a very encouraging and enlightening experience.
Data Operator (Current Employee) – Birmingham – 24 July 2016
A very relaxed place to work. We have different types of customers from exam papers to customers loyalty cards. We have about 25 members of staff in our department and we get along well together. When other sections are busy we will help each other out to get the work out on time, as we have daily customer deadlines to meet. The most enjoyable part of my job is when we do the post first thing in the morning, as we all come together as a department and work as one.
