Productive and a fun place to work
Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB6 December 2018
A good place to work, the management was good. They have people from diverse cultures, and it was fun working with employees. A typical day at work was not much because it was a part time job.
Pros
Easy work
Cons
Not enough money because it was part time.

Excellant Work Teams
EHS Advisor (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB3 December 2018
A great place to work with every from management to contract craft have a great working relationship. Workers new to site are pleasantly surprised to learn there is not "class system" we are one team with the common goal of working safely and productively. If you are a safe worker with a "professional work ethic", you will be welcomed here.
Pros
Excellant camps with great ammenities.
Cons
Uncertainty of job stability.

Large company that does not invest in its employees
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB27 November 2018
There is a lack of coordination between business units. Work would be completed only to find out another group was already working on it, or it had been done before. Many times work is started only to be shut down because a senior employee was not aware and did not see the value. Times when entire groups are left in limbo on the next steps, deliverables and what work needs to be completed.

Poor performance review cycle where personal feedback on employee work quality and areas to improve are non existent. Year end reviews are typically done well into the new year(Feb-March) after the year had finished. No support for employees who show desire to improve knowledge base or skills. Very political landscape where you need to know someone to advance.
Pros
Wages
Cons
Abysmal employee development, lack of planning & poor communication

Commissioning Contractor (Former Employee) –  Fort Hills, Fort McMurray27 November 2018
Fort Hills was a great place to learn about secondary extraction, and how it all operated. Commissioning different parts of the plant and working in the control room gave me a good overview of the plant
Pros
Camp Job
Cons
15/6 schedule

MEM Field Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, AB14 November 2018
Company goes on the saying of always looking for input from employees to better themselves but does not change it path of always doing what they have done. Management level is quite cut throat

Good money, benefits......to rise you need to suck up and not question Management.
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB13 November 2018
over the top with safety to the point of crippling productivity. To rise in the company you need to be a "yes" person. Do not question management. Policies and procedures blanket every move you need to make.
Pros
Good salary
Cons
Employee disengagement

Instrument Apprentice (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB28 October 2018
I found the management to be quite sexist in the work place, and they never showed concern for the employee's well being. Stress leave was very common in the area. Have only heard negative reviews even from current workers.

Over all Suncor was a great company tp work for
EH&S Advisor (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB18 October 2018
Each day was a learning experience for the different types of work scopes being complete. A normal day consisted of conducting field inspections permit audits facilitate meetings and attend management meetings, field level risk assessments (FLRA) reviews.

Over all the safety and workplace culture was above average most of the time. The most challenging part of the job was the new systems Suncor was trying to pilot and implement for this specific project.

I enjoy doing what i do so it is hard to pinpoint it down to one part but working in the field with the different craft was most enjoyable
Pros
Working with the many different craft for the project
Cons
When Suncor started to down size and eliminate certain benefits that were offered prior

Bullies in management roles emphatically supported
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 September 2018
Suncor is a great company overall BUT the culture allows for isolated management awfulness to ensue. My boss humiliated any employee within reach. He was afraid of anyone who challenged his ideas and felt no shame in belittling people to the point of mental breakdown. Existing processes, culture and senior management were supportive of this behaviour.

I'm out now, but lost almost two years of income as a result! Outrageous. If you find yourself in a similar circumstance, don't give in like me. Take them court.
Pros
So many great people and challenging work
Cons
A few absolutely horrible people managers are sheltered

Great money but terrible to employees
Electrical & Instrumentation (Former Employee) –  Base Plant28 August 2018
Used to be an amazing place to work. Was like a second family. All new management was brought in and all of a sudden it didn't matter how long you were there, how hard you worked or what you did for the company. Work life balance was taken away and job insecurities were introduced.

SCM Planner (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB27 August 2018
We were treated as family by the managment. Safety first is the main concern for everyone as part of the workplace culture. I enjoyed working and learned a lot as I was given an oppotunity to have my weaknesses to be my strenght. Also learned to be more knowledgeable in SAP and other other jobs.
Pros
good benefits and been recognized.
Cons
Can't say anything wrong with Suncor
