    I have been working at Suncor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people are amazing and respectful. The environment is supportive. The values are safety. There are TONS of opportunities at Suncor and they encourage and help you try new roles to round you out and find what you like best. Suncor is really a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    Some sites are remote and require a fly-in-fly-out shift schedule. It can be a lot of traveling and working away from home can be tough. Fly-in-fly-out employees receive an additional bonus

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

    Pros

    Striving to improve technological advantages, location,

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, HR processes take too long, improving work life balance but still requires improvement, lack of diversity, too much work - not enough time. Very little potential for upward movement for US citizens.

    Advice to Management

    Resource demand doesn't match goals. Too much work, too little time. Management determines deadlines without understanding resource implications.

    I have been working at Suncor full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, people. They quit micro managing everyone, that's nice. They really work on getting us off when needed.

    Cons

    Management doesnt know if they are coming or going it seems. When big decisions need to be made it takes forever or never.

    Advice to Management

    It seems the risk matrix is not geared toward personal safety. Using terms like once in a thousand, 10 thousand, 100000 years when it happened last week.

    I worked at Suncor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits...

    Cons

    There is a 'if you don't like it, there's the door' mentality and environment. There is a lot of 'corporate' sabotage among the managers and supervisors due to this environment. Everyone is out for themselves which thrives in this environment.

    Advice to Management

    Look deep into your upper management and see who has a history of this.. just ask the workers.. they will tell you..

    Pros

    "Safety first" is stressed at all levels. Good pay and benefits. If you are in the right department with good leadership, you can expand your knowledge and experience tremendously.

    Cons

    Too many managers at US refinery(mainly Canadian), still voice the safety first motto, but push production before all else. Little concern over working people long hours or under adverse conditions. Safety incidents are not reported or falsified to ensure manager bonuses. Starting to fade from the work/life balance, and expectiing folks to work longer hours. Promotion and hiring of unqualified or incompotent leaders,...
