    Pros

    SCS is a great company to work for. The SCS culture is unlike anywhere I have worked before. Everyone seems to be on the same page in terms of the long term vision of the company.

    Cons

    With offices all across the country, it would be nice to have more company events to interact with employees from other offices.

    Pros

    SCS has a very friendly, engaged culture that stems from the longevity of much of the senior management of the firm. The decision of the founding principals to move SCS to an ESOP firm back in the mid 1980's has created broad ownership of SCS that will facilitate continued growth and opportunity for employees seeking to be leaders within the company.

    The recent focus on developing young professionals with a formal program designed to better engage the company's younger team members is an excellent example of on of the ways the company is promoting succession and sustainability of the firm and its leadership.

    Cons

    Fast growth in recent years has presented some challenges.

    SCS Engineers is the most welcoming company I have ever worked for. The mix of office and field work keeps the job exciting. The staff is extremely intelligent, friendly to each other and truly cares for client relationships! Just walking through the office, you can tell there is a great sense of company pride in our work. Training, conferences, workshops and memberships are all perks that allow us to continually develop as professionals. This company will do whatever it takes to get employees the proper tools, training and other resources to deliver exceptional work to clients. This is a work environment that invests back into employees.
