    I worked at SCC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is a small number of great people who make this place work. The rest of you are literally cannon fodder

    Cons

    Unless you can do more of the same ole stuff, give up. Innovation group has delivered nothing, can do nothing and is in disarray. Can not deliver in today’s market. Run by people who sit in their office in Birmingham and don’t see clients or vendors...

    Advice to Management

    No point, they won’t listen. Just rev up the revolving door so it can keep up with your attrition...!

    I worked at SCC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people I worked with.

    Cons

    Way to many to mention, I have working within the IT sector for over 18 years and the time I spent at SCC was hands down the worst experience of my working life. Poor management, poor office facilities, pay for water, blame culture, and the staff turnover is unbelievable, the equipment they give you is so old, laptops that are over 5/6 years old, and phone with no smart capabilities. If working here does not put you off...

    Advice to Management

    Please support your staff, and let go of the managers that do not know how to manage, you have some great people here but with poor management they are all moving on. If you want to be as big as you say you are drastic changes need to take place.

    I worked at SCC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They pay higher than other IT companies of its size Some great people working here

    Cons

    The pay is 15-25% higher than other companies and this will get you through the door. Don't be fooled, the staff turn over is so high that they will throw money at you if they need to fill a role. They literally treat you like dirt, throw you in the deep end, under a bus and anything else they can throw at you they will. The Management is a flat structure so things get to the top very quickly bcos there is no management...

    Advice to Management

    Remove the current directors and bring in fresh people. There are some great people working at SCC but you dont reward them, you keep people down and manage with fear and dis trust. Noone respects the directors for this and the atmosphere is awful. I am glad i got in and got out quickly, i was one of the lucky ones

    I worked at SCC full-time

    Pros

    You get your pay on time.

    Cons

    You don't get paid enough for the work you do. You can spend years here and hove no growth at all. The HR department is a just for the record as you never get a performance appraisal, employee review, or even a good exit interview. Join here only to cover resume gap.

    Advice to Management

    Have proper HR policies and implement them.
