    I have been working at Suncor as an intern

    Pros

    Phenomenal pay, great work environment, location in the plus 15, very smart people to work with, very supportive work environment.

    Cons

    Very competitive to advance, it seems that advancement opportunities are scarce. Additionally, it seems like a fair amount of people are very scared about the prospect of losing their job.

    Advice to Management

    Try to reassure the top performers that their job is safe. It truly seems like people are scared about the possibility of loosing their job.

    I worked at Suncor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Salary Some independence Good people below management to work with. Everyone wants to do well.

    Cons

    Leadership is not transparent Personality Driven. Reactionary to only the moment. No vision for supporting the business

    Advice to Management

    Create a vision and stick to it. Succumbing to the whims of any trend will not help you move forward and only frustrate those who work for you.

    I worked at Suncor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lot's of time off, decent pay.

    Cons

    Leaders claim open door policy and company preaches integrity but fires those who come forward with concerns. Even HR is corrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. The Suncor way is a facade.

    I worked at Suncor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary, benefit, bonus and other incentives. Excellent training program, great opportunity for growth. Integrated oil & gas company, upstream portfolio diversified in many areas including in situ, oil sands and conventional resources.

    Cons

    No hedging gets the company vulnerable to the decreasing oil price. Going through cost cutting, employee reduction, going through reorganization, in this process loosing valuable human resources after spending years of training and development on them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. However, need to think about future strength of the organization while the company keeps loosing valuable employees in this downturn.
