    Pros

    Working for ScS is like working with family. You automatically feel part of the team, not only within your own department but as part of the company. It's an amazing company to work for and there is always room for progression which you don't have in many companies these day's. ScS really value their people.

    Cons

    The only downside is, once you are part of ScS, you won't want to leave

We do encourage our team members to make us aware of any problems or suggestions they may have by reaching out to their manager or our HR department. We feel this is vital so we can help at the time and improve as an employer. ScS HR team
