To much red tape to deal with on a daily basis
Maintenance supervisor (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB30 April 2016
To many expectations put on the supervisors and none on the workers or management. Trying to drive a safe culture down peoples throat and not letting people think for themselves.

Working at Suncor was a great experience! I learned a lot to be collaborative. Management are very friendly and does not treat you as employee.

General Manager Geo-Services and Mine Planning (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB25 May 2016
Company provides many opportunities for employees to advance or experience other opportunities within the company. One drawback is that the company is top heavy and administratively burdensome.

This job requires a certain person to work in the offshore environment for 21 days at atime. Great learning experience. Working on an FPSO is a challenging career

Summer Student Operator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB9 November 2014
Worked as an operator doing shift work. If your ok with shift work than this is a great job, it's located in the city, easily accessible. Seemed like the employees were not happy about the benefits plan, saying things like Shell and Esso have a much better plan for their employees. Other than that it was a fun place to work, great people to work with, management wasn't really noteworthy. Salary is decent compared to other major companies for operators starting upwards of 85k.

Contractor
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray AB15 April 2014
Organised a solid team to execute and complete our task over two years. Management was inspirational, very good at position. Not a lot of room for advancement, was hostile environment in that respect. Contractor position lacked any benefits and were not involved in overall company culture activities. Altogether had a strong team who worked hard and did our best to succeed at the task.

Assistant to Site Director / ILP Coordinator (SAP) (Current Employee) –  Fort Hills project7 October 2015
Suncor is a great company to work for. Management is fair and co-workers are generally happy.

Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learning from them.
Pros
Pays well - (somewhat) flexible manager
Cons
work life balance was tilted

Great group of co-workers with same goals in mind.
Tailings Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB10 May 2016
A great group of guys on my shift that could be always counted on for advice and assistance making it an environment that we could gain experience and knowledge together and grow as a team. The shifts of 6 days on and 6 days off with options of paying or trading days with trusted sufficiently experienced operators on other shifts in order to manipulate off time for very flexible home and family life was excellent. This makes up for being away from home as a commuter or the almost 15 hours per day that was required to get to site, work the 12 hour shift, and return to home or rental accommodations. Unfortunately management doesn't seem to have the operators best interests as the best operators and employees are only treated as good as the less competent being punished and restricted as group when one employee is solely responsible for an incident. I know as management a certain prerogative is to be achieved but employees should be treated on a more personal level. I don't think anyone should be treated special but for management not being able to single out employees that have been hired with absolutely no experience and might not have the skills it will take for the position and to keep them on is creating an unsafe weak link that could ultimately result in an incident that will affect another employees family and wellbeing for the rest of their lives.
Pros
Work schedule, great group of co-workers, pretty much family
Cons
Managment style
