    I have been working at Suncor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Overall work life balance is good. Pay/benefits are good for employees but contractors are overpaid

    Cons

    Constant leadership changes from Canada. Low ceiling for advancement unless you are Canadian or one of the chosen. High performers are over promoted. Unqualified internal candidates are put in leadership roles over much higher qualified external ones. Leads to lack of leadership knowledge and bench strength

    Advice to Management

    Don’t undervalue the pillars of strength and stability in the organization because you are so focused on the shiny new engineer

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

    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,...

    I worked at Suncor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits and decent amount of PTO’s even though you work an extra 1/2 hour per day for them!

    Cons

    Terrible culture. Mid Level Managers are treated with no respect. Employees are treated literally as numbers and not recognized for experience or efforts!

    Advice to Management

    Look at streamlining of a lot of the managers and directors as they are basically doing the same role! Consolidate this to one role!
