I worked at Suncor

Pros

great responsibilities
management team is generally very approachable
working environment is very social and comfortable
employees are very friendly and helpful

Cons

Their evaluation really depends on what is the type of person of your boss and your relationship with them when you work there

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should provide more well rounded evaluation (ex. peer, management, subordinates), train their new supervisors on how to train and help develop potential future employees.

    I worked at Suncor

    Pros

    Worked with many smart people I coud get along with
    Amazing benefits
    If you stay with them you can get lots of money for school
    Big company with lots of jobs
    Pockets of amazing people throughout the company

    Cons

    Old boys club, especially if you are from fort mac (was told you have to "do your time in fort mac" if you want any advancement)
    Incompetent middle managers that are part of the club are destroying the company and are untouchable
    Many ex coworkers had to leave suncor as the only way to get a significant raise
    friends/daughters/sons of employees getting very easily and getting paid more than employees
    SAP was a mess, even with hundreds of people working to prepare for years in Cornerstone.
    Lots of long term stress due to being told to catch up on my job that was behind because 75% of the company didn't know how to approve charges and didn't know their cost centre despite mandatory training.
    Worst feeling was being blamed for the problems that I had no control over while trying to prove otherwise, which fell on deaf ears for over a year
    Contractors are gods, they had a hayday figuring out all sorts of ways to extend their contracts and create extra work (many accounts of thinking up ideas and then going against them as they were being implemented).
    Lots of lip service, manager once removed interviews felt like I was talking to a lamp.
    If you are in a service department all blame will run down the hill towards you, some departments get an unlimited tab for team building while others get nothing.
    Not a lot of openess to communicate between departments, fort mac had some of the most stubborn, pissed off people and were always the last people to change.
    Outsourcing IT made things very messy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a better eye out for incompetence. Stop listening to contractors over employees. Give an even share of power and responsibility to different departments. Change the way you think, a computer program isn't going to do it for you. Go on that show "Back to the Floor", the only problem is you probably wouldn't get out alive.

    Keep making money, if it stops you will have a sobering look in the mirror.
