Too many silos and very little acountability.
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB19 September 2017
Suncor base plant operates too many silos and there is very little accountability across the board, especially higher up. Suncor also restricts where you can apply with in company and may lay you off in the end after restricting your options, even if your house burnt down in the fires. Good money, painful to work for if you take pride in your work.

FIFO Great Work-Life Balance
Process (Contact) Engineer - Fort Hills (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, AB13 September 2017
FIFO opportunities (7x7) provide a great work and life balance. Currently in transition to become a very procedural and standardized company to compete with the International industry. Training programs are sufficient and comprehensive, management structure is top heavy with far too much management.
Pros
Excellent camp accomodations and work-life balance on 7x7
Cons
12 hour shifts, below average benefits and compensation

Good company to work for
Extraction Warehouse Unit Leader (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB25 August 2017
Suncor overall is a good company to work for. There are lots of good people that really work at getting things done. If only the management of the company would take a step back listen and implement what the workers are suggesting it would be a much more efficient and productive company.
Pros
very well compensated
Cons
Poor management

Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 August 2017
They provide free training in all aspects. You need free time to look for what you want to learn in their portal. In some areas people are extremely busy while in some others you will see people relaxing.

productive and fun workplace with leisure off work activities in camp
Contractor (Former Employee) –  Fort McKay, AB15 August 2017
Subcontracted and very disconnected from client as a laborer. Work your hours without a poisonous attitude and you'll do fine, many things to keep your mind off the long terms at work away from home if you take advantage of the facilities off work leisure activities.
Pros
Good meals, good wages, training paid (when provided)
Cons
Bad management/co-workers at times, If you aren't part of the work friend club... good luck!

Limited growth opportunities
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB19 July 2017
Suncor still recognizes and promotes based on politics, who you know and relationships with very little consideration for performance, potential and work ethic.

Management is typically skilled when contributing personally to work with little to no aptitude for leading and developing teams. Leader turnover is constant.
Pros
Great salary
Cons
Leaders have limited skills for making decisions or developing their teams.

The company gives you what you want to accomplish your work. You can make sure that working there, you will have the support from your management. There are few things that can be improved as all organizations.

Demanding but a fun loving client
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB10 July 2017
I worked with the global team with most of the resources located in India. As the part of a daily routine I ensured that all work items are tracking according to the schedule, or that the mitigation plans are in place and that the client agrees with the plan. Again, I had a privilege to work with the great individuals, however on many occasions it required an extra effort to clearly understand the team as some spoke with the broken English.
The hardest part of the job was seeing the client not ready to commit to the changes that would benefit the business. The best part was to work with people on the team.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Very early meetings due to the team working from India

Assistant Engineer (Power Engineer, 4th Class) (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB18 June 2017
If you like money and living in Fort Mcmurray, Suncor is for you. The shift is 6 on/6 off. Company is large and unlikely to file bankruptcy. The company is so large that you could easily fall through the cracks and be forgotten about (this could be good or bad depending on what you want).
Pros
Money.
Cons
Living in Fort McMurray.
