What is health insurance like at SCC?

Pros

Good and fun people to work with. Challenging, not boring day-to-day work. Given independence at work and being involved at decision making within my project. Hard work and good skills are being recognised and appreciated. Annual review and pay rise. Good work-life balance. I've never had to put in extra hours.

Cons

The annual pay rise could be bigger. SCC wants employees to work 2 days from the office while I feel I could do everything from home. Very little healthcare benefits. 1 quaterly bonus in the last 12 months (Covid-19 could be partially blamed for it).

Very little healthcare benefits.

Does SCC have a pension plan?

Pros

Easy jobs Unqualified management are easy to manipulate The collective hatred for the management brings the staff together

Cons

Poor pension. Poor pay. SCC is the most unprofessional company I have ever heard of, never mind worked for SCC is run from the top, management are just there to carry out orders and take the blame when it inevitably all goes wrong. Customers and staff are treated with contempt. No pay rises, if you get an appraisal it’s always overdue and they start by telling you there is no money available for a pay rise. No incentive to excel, just do what you need to do and stop. Mind numbingly boring. Poor office conditions, broken furniture, dirty break rooms, awful toilets. Seriously depressing working environment and jobs. No chance of promotion or progression, some people have been doing the same job for 20 years+. 23 days annual leave. Only 8 days paid sickness. No valid training, they are scared of training staff properly because they know you will leave when qualified, I did a few days training and passed an exam they more or less forced me to cheat. Poor communication between management and staff and between departments, different teams are working against each other. Blame culture, management point out any small mistake you make, but never praise your positive achievements. Bullying management are so scared of their superiors they bully staff to produce the required figures. No bonus. Massive staff turnover, don’t bother making any friends, if they have any sense they will leave asap

Advice to Management

I truly don’t know what to say, you know how bad it is at SCC, yet you do nothing to even attempt to make things better so you clearly don’t care one bit for the welfare of your staff, pretty depressing situation really.

Poor pension.

Does SCC offer parental leave?

Pros

The people you work with are fantastic

Cons

The company is dated in its values and provides the bare 'minimum' support for employees where it matters. Poor holiday entitlement, basic parental leave, basic extended sick etc. Covid-19 related issues again bare minimum for employees, if it wasn't for government guidelines, SCC would have everyone in the office without regard for anyone's safety or personal circumstances. Staff expected in the office at least 2 days a week every week even though we can work from home. Now staff are being told they have to either book annual leave or take unpaid leave, should they have to quarantine for 14 days after a holiday, but only on the days they were expected in the office, the days you were supposed to work from home you can continue working from home. To make matters worse directors (HR Director none the less) do not even follow the COVID rules on social distancing, flouting around with all her 'pals' and ignoring the very policies she has undoubtedly had input to / signed off on.

Advice to Management

Replace the directors with more modern, forward-thinking, people's people. Until you do that, SCC will continue to plod along with your "growth". Take the leap, replace the directors and provide exemplary employee care. This will attract the caliber of employees to really push SCC forward and make it the business it really should be.

Poor holiday entitlement, basic parental leave, basic extended sick etc. Covid

Does SCC assist with or provide work transportation?

Pros

Generally the people at SCC are great Initial salary good Bonus good Ability to buy up to 5 days holiday Car allowance reasonable Free tea and coffee in the kitchen

Cons

No annual pay reviews No professional development Many, many changes in line management in a short space of time (6 different line managers in <3 years) Legal department producing customer contracts not worth the paper they are written on (or disk space they occupy)! Competitors were able to waltz in and take over a customer contract with little recourse. Little/no attempt to fill vacancies from within SCC. No concept of staff retention. SCC would rather dish out £thousands to recruitment agencies than bother to retain their staff. Large staff attrition rate. Who is being made accountable in the management chain!? Not allowed to work from home, at all, ever! Even when you could demonstrate you could be far more productive and spend far less time travelling and more time actually working. Very short sighted approach which impacts work/life balance.

Advice to Management

Focus on staff development, staff retention, building teams and not a collection of individuals. Make service contracts clearer and enforceable. Allow limited working from home where the job allows to improve work/life balance. Advertise internal vacancies more effectively as I have lost count the number of times vacancies appear on external job sites before even being aware there was a vacancy!

Car allowance reasonable
