    I have been working at Suncor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits. Pay. Coworkers. Gym. Vacation allocation.

    Cons

    Mid level leadership do not lead - they protect their position by not making waves. By not leading their teams, they leave everyone to duke it out with each other. Really unhealthy mentally for all reports.

    Advice to Management

    Remove Direct level layer. Managers should report and have direct relationship with VP level.

    I have been working at Suncor full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great salary, many departments to work in, many geographical locations.

    Cons

    Lack of succession planning & career progression opportunities. Other than senior leaders, we are not enable to make decisions. Poor employee engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Promoting based on seniority or popularity doesn't necessarily equate to creating the best leaders.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Suncor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They have provided work through the latest downturn in the economy! have a very good safety culture.

    Cons

    Using the downturn as a reason to claw back money from contractors and employees alike even tho oil prices are rebounding they are still taking away from everyone. It feels like they are using this as an excuse to "adjust" salaries to better line the pockets of the investors. Eventually it will cost the company when they NEED GOOD people and they have been swallowed up by other organizations.

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to earn the respect of employees and contractors you would take cuts in pay as ALL of us have! While this may have helped us financially through the downturn, by taking a huge pay raise you slapped everybody in the face regarding tightening OUR belts!

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Suncor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Big oil salary benefits and perks, gentle management environment, reasonable hours, well run company, high hopes for future profitability, quite cushy in relation to another super major I worked for

    Cons

    Slow moving, few downsides from my perspective, needs a more commercial mindset (beyond upstream), other employees are more negative because many of their old colleagues got laid off in oil price downturn (just like every other oil company, not Suncor's fault)

    Advice to Management

    Return some of the perks from the good old days to make the employees feel appreciated, especially with ourreturn to profitability
