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

    Pros

    Family culture, I've worked for companies that really shout about their culture, but actually have none. SCC doesn't, but it is possibly the best I've experienced. SCC also treats you like an adult and really trust their staff.

    Cons

    Need better management processes and systems, especially a proper CRM.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of positives, however, implementing a decent CRM will massively enable management to manage the Sales team, but also help the Sales person to manage their Suspects. I've never worked anywhere that struggles so much with forecasting.

    I have been working at SCC full-time

    Pros

    I've really enjoyed working with SCC during my time here, it's been much better than some of the large corporations I've worked with before. Te managers actually take the time to get to know you, and I've been able to speak with our CEO James Rigby several times too. It's a nice feeling like a valued member of the company

    Cons

    Nothing to say in particular.

    Pros

    Everyone I work with, I would class as a friend. I have never laughed so much and genuinely been excited to go to work everyday. The opportunities within the business are great and you are certainly encouraged to grow your career at SCC. The CSR ethos of the business is great and its great to have a big business still giving back to the community.

    Would be great to have more water stations around the building and 2 volunteer days a year instead of 1.
