Great place to work

Featured review

Suncor selected this as a representative review
So far one of the best I had worked. Great experience and people. It's always rewarding when company put their employees first. They put their money where their mouth is.

Pros

Great people

Cons

Projects can be slow

Lots of work to do

Suncor processes are not world-class (speaking of SCM), their systems are lacking, but they are moving to S4. I found the people at Suncor great! Be conscious that because they are a lean organization (speaking about the number of employees they have) you will have more work than you can deal with every day...so be sure that your supervisor respects your judgement and time!

Pros

Good people & expectation for honesty at all times

Cons

Too much work is assigned to allow employees to deliver great quality

Neither Good Nor Bad

Neither Good Nor Bad. Depends which team you are going to be a part of. who is your manager. If the manager is good your life will be easy if not, then you will end up leaving the job. Salary and perks should be agreed upon before the Interview and not after.

Pros

Enterprise Environment

Cons

Enterprise Environment, but no proper management, you get lost in trying to figure out information.

Very poor mid level managers

Inexperienced/Inept managers that focus primarily on optics rather than actual improvements Never ending "Flavor of the week" programs.Time off for staff is basically non existent as you are required to cover others when they are off,IE: you take two days off, you will end up covering the person who covered you when you were off. Net time off equals out at zero or less...Cuts and program changes mean you will likely be making less than the people you are accountable to manage.Different jobs are posted internally but are filled with people that the hiring manager "knows" rather than the best suited candidate.This has caused a lot of my peers to leave due to lack of advancement possibilities

Pros

Steady Work

Cons

Advancement possibilities, work life balance, manager support, no clear direction/inconsistent application of written policy

Not Recommended

The upper management didn't know about the employees and who is in do the real work. the full-time employees avoid the hard tasks and push them to the contractor. Tons of daily meetings without any benefits. people in the IT dept are dinosaurs coming from the old school, take over everything, and please close your mouth when they talking. They are not willing to change and used new technologies and there is no way to grow while most of projects it outsource to another company and they ended my contract once they have a bad financial situation and ended most of the contractor contracts in a couple of weeks during Covid 19

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Tons of daily meeting, Bureaucracy, dinosaurs IT Dept

Avoid Fort McMurray

I don't recommend joining Suncor Baseplant if you are young unless you are unable to get anything else. The industry is not as attractive as it once was and won't be returning. Due to the decline Suncor is cutting costs in all ways through massive layoffs, no bonuses, no relocation support, or raises etc. No investment in creating happier employees, dirty smelly offices, low morale, pay not competitive for cost of living, no career advancement out of region, passive aggressive colleagues, dishonest management are just a few of the cons of joining FMM. The culture is poor here as employees are overworked. There is a lack of proper training due to high turnover because people are miserable and choose to leave. Daily commute to site will add a couple of hours to your already long work day and will be even longer when the weathers bad. Colleagues don't seem passionate about what they do, are uninspiring, and the workload is unevenly distributed.

Pros

Pension

Cons

Low morale in FMM, pay not competitive for the high cost of living, no career advancement outside of region, passive aggressive colleagues, poor management and training

Good place to work though during recessions work atmosphere becomes toxic

Suncor loves to lay people off. It’s a fact. No matter what they say, when a recession hits, they will reduce their work force and freeze hiring. The toxic atmosphere during recession time is very demotivating!

Pros

Good pay, pretty good people

Cons

Toxic environment during recessions
