      Suncor MEM Supervisor - Base Plant Fort McMurray

      Nov. 23, 2022 - Maintenance Supervisor in Fort McMurray, AB
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Wage and bonus system for supervisor is very attractive as well there are housing incentives (money) available which are also very attractive for the long-term employee. Bus transportation from city to site & return, no need to drive personal vehicle.

      Cons

      It's very easy to fall into the money trap with overtime being so readily available. If you are employed as a supervisor, you can be relocated to any area at any time. You need to look at it like a pro sports team and could be traded to any team at any time, & you don't have a choice, other than quitting. When quitting, any incentives paid out WILL be "clawed back". This could be quite substantial and worth considering if departing the company. Company pension plan is definitely sub-standard and needs improvement. A person is better off taking control of their own retirement plans,

      Work Life Balance

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Friendly environment, nice benefits, lots of room to grow within the company. Suncor is focusing more on work life balance and allows for flexible work schedule, but it really depends on the manager you are under.

      Cons

      Inconsistent management styles. Expectations will be different depending on which manager you are under.

      Good salary but very poor employee engagement and no career planning

      Nov. 21, 2022 - Big Data Architect in Calgary, AB
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - good salary and bonus

      Cons

      - no training plan - no career growth after you join, very difficult to get promoted as there is no proper appraisal process. No peer review or half yearly feedback from Manager - no transparency in internal job postings and criteria to get hired in another team. All the positions are already filled with Managers known people. - Very old school type of management which does not listen to what exactly employees need.
