Not a professional company
Any qualified and experienced IT Manager would very soon dislike the working practices at SCC. Very nepotistic with senior managers lack of subject matter knowledge leading to very bad decisions and strategy. This seems to come from the top. Don't work here if you can help it.

Utterly Terrible Draconian Attrition Factory
Utterly terrible place to work. Dictatorial culture where extra hours are expected. with very little opportunity to progress and very poor benefits. Don't be fooled here by the contract of employment and what appears to be offered initially. Read the small print!. Draconian attrition factory. Steer clear!

Do not work here!
If you're looking for a job where you're rewarded for finishing work with extra work and enjoy being treated by dirt by your fellow colleagues and management, by all means give SCC a go, however, if you're looking for a secure work place then please look elsewhere.

You're nothing more than a disposable asset at SCC, the company works solely on KPI and if you meet targets, they will increase your work load soon after, the schedulers do not know how long each task takes as they haven't done the work themselves and instead rely on a stopwatch without taking in to consideration the time it takes to find your work, despatch your work, and locate functioning equipment which you need to use throughout the day.


Pay is not good at £300 a week for the amount of work you're expected to do, you do not receive sick pay, absent pay or holiday pay, and instead are given your holiday as pay on top of your regular wage, which equals to £300 a week.


There's a lack of respect, management never leave their office to attempt a conversation or engage in any means of human communication with their staff, and many permanent members will make sure you know just how lazy you are if you have any time away from work whether related to holiday or sickness, I have seen members listening to the phones and laughing at voicemails left by unwell colleagues.


There is not enough equipment which you can utilize throughout the day to aid with working, whether that relates to pump-trucks for moving up to one hundred assets which are scattered in several locations, tape-rollers used for taping up complete

Stressful and Constantly Pushing
This job is a perfect introduction to how not to be treated by a company. In here you will learn how your boss/manager does nothing but sit in their office and delegate you more and more work even after you have finished your PKI set work amount. You will never be good enough for SCC and you have to realize this. There is absolutely no jobe security. One day you could be working perfectly no problems and next month you will be without a job with no explanation.

If you are hard working,this is recognised and they give you more work,because they know you'll do it.The engineers are great guys,but unfairly put under stress by management. The pay is Decensian.. I spent a number of years at SCC at saw a very high staff turn over.With a few tweaks here and there it could of been/could be a good place to work.
Pros
Helpfull engineers and helpfull suport staff in Birmingham.
Cons

Avoid avoid avoid!!!!
Never work for them - enormous turnover in staff, and unless your face fits you’ll never progress anywhere!

Promise everything deliver nothing.


Was told competitive salary, but not in London and south east! Miles below average for these areas and no travel paid as with other large companies. So that’s at least another 2000 a year less

Good if you are in with the senior team, dire if not
The hardest part of the job here was actually keeping the job. This is due to very archaic management practices that rely on bullying as opposed to real staff management. And it was such a shame as there were so many good staff with real ability. The many staff I came into contact with were just superb. Especially the technical team in Romania.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting stuff done for clients. That gave me a real buzz.

The workplace culture is from the 1970's. Bullying, fake disciplinary's, dreadful management, and rip off the clients at every step. Terrible culture.

As for work life balance it was not too bad. Start at 0800 and end late every day, but as a senior manager on a good salary that was expected and given.
Pros
You got paid on time
Cons
Atrocious senior management

Terrible Company To Work For
I was very disappointed with SCC , when they sent me the employment pack it seemed like a well run company. With 0 employee benefits and a really degrading managerial team it is no wonder this job is permanently posted. You will be given a salary THAT IS LESS THAN MINIMUM WAGE because they don't have enough staff to complete the work load which means you have to stay late often. They will not give you this time back or offer OT money as i found out the hard way. Soon as you walk in the lads in the warehouse will tell you exactly how bad it is. There is no organisation , no resource planning department , you will be lucky to know on Thursday what your shifts for the following week will be. The work culture in the warehouse is really shocking. I urge you not to waste your time with this company. You will be left regretting it in the long term i have no doubt about it.
Pros
1 hour Lunch
Cons
Unpaid OT, Shocking Wage, Disorganisation, Degrading Management, Poor work ethic

Another regretful company worked for
Echoing many other reviews SCC is an awful place to work. Soaked in negativity and condescending attitudes, if you have any moral value and/or opinion of your skills you will not fit in. Only really to suit robot do what you're told persons that don't mind being talked down to for no reason. Terminated my own contract out of self worth, lasted 4 months.

The manager however for my department was lovely but would still not recommended to anyone.
Pros
its a job
Cons
Too many to list

Don't do it.
Don't do it, save your time, effort and career. I heard a lot of negativity around working at SCC but didn't believe it. If you're reading this don't be naïve like me. My advice is don't do it.

Blame Culture
SCC are a unique company, probably owing to the fact they are still primarily family owned and run, this creates a culture of fear and blame cascading downwards

Overall Job
Very happy in my role. Management and Directors are an asset to the company. Maintaining the current customer base in the current climate takes skill and ability.

I have learned a lot about processes and IT principles within this role, in particular as to the level of service that the company provides and the back office work needed to maintain this.


Management and Directors are an asset to the company. Culture is something in which I am not sure about. I personally have not seen anything which may indicate a poor attitude/culture.


Hardest part of the job is to learning to multitask and prioritise. Everything is a priority, so is about learning to balance work-load.


Enjoyable part of the job - to be a part of something amazing!
Pros
Good company prospects, Management and Directors.
Cons
Lack of Home-working Options

Lack of Management Support
Need a serious review of management at director level.

SCC used to be a great place to work with talented professional individuals who took pride in their role.

Over the last 5 years i have watched the company destroy itself to the point they are now unable to retain staff with a staff turnover of enormous proportions.


Continual staff changes have resulted in severe lack of company and process knowledge.
Pros
Local to home
Cons
Too many to mention

It's dificult to find the words
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.

Awful company to work for
The pay and benefits are good if you are in the right role but other than that I cannot think of any reason to work at SCC, and would not recommend them as an employer.
