Project Manager (Current Employee), Calgary, AB – February 22, 2015
work varies time to time. high load to low load the management varies, personally it gets better the higher the chain you go. Suncor is a multi-culture organisation. the kind of people you work vary - from fun intelligent staff to not so intelligent The hardest part of the job is uncertainty. The management time to time lack the vision and as such make it difficult for the staff to figure out what to work on as a priority.
