    I have been working at SCC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best company i have worked in to date;

    - Get to work with some of the biggest Companies and well know brands in the UK
    - If you work hard and are competent you will get a good name for your self and will be noticed
    - if you don't work hard and are not competent you wont last (which i like, i want to work with like minded and hard working individuals)
    - Vast majority of colleagues regularly go the extra mile for you to help you get the job done
    - You get to to work with some of the most knowledgeable subject matter experts in the UK offering cutting edge technologies and solutions
    - Has a very thin management layer from being family run so business decision can be made quickly
    - Good earning potential
    - Support from managers when you need it
    - Are very good to adopting new technologies and services ahead of the competition
    - many unique selling points to clients which the competition can't match
    - very wide range of services and products so adding value and creating propositions for things that your customers want is alot easier than for other organisations.

    Cons

    - very small marketing department to support sales
    - pension scheme (but uncapped earning potential balances that out)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
    Consider stronger benefits other than good salaries/commission, a higher pension would be nice
    Review the marketing teams role, create and invest in a marketing team dedicated to external marketing rather than organizing internal events. A bigger marketing team driving more events, webinars telemarketing would giver a better ROI from your sales teams, it feels like we are the best kept secret in IT some times.

    Solutions Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at SCC.

    Interview

    From the offset it was clear they were desperate - they have huge problems with staff turn over and they need bums on seat. To be honest even if you're an idiot you can get a job here if you put on a suit and speak in complete sentences - in fact that might impress some of them.
