I have been working at Suncor

Pros

Good benefits, good pay, good work-life balance, friendly colleagues, strong safety focus, fat profit margins on oil production and refining despite gross organizational inefficiencies.

Cons

Workforce competence and knowledge level surprisingly subpar due to high turnover, high growth rate and inadequate training. This is surprisingly true even in management ranks.
Management systems implementation uneven, poor in some areas like SAP.
General workforce and managerial complacency toward company standards and procedures as a result of ambiguity and rapid growth outpacing training and management systems development.
Employee workarounds are commonplace due to ineffective workflows, contributing to even more ambiguity, inefficiency, low productivity, high turnover, and ultimately lower profits than might otherwise be possible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Business workflow management systems need to be remediated by promoting guys like me to (1) identify the ones that don't work well (2) replace the ones that don't work with workable systems (3) implement retraining of personnel to honor the work processes, and provide mechanisms for them to flag and take ownership in repairs to the systems that are broken. If management were to clean up the management systems, productivitty would improve and employee turnover would go down.
