      Work-life balance

      Pros

      Suncor cares about the work-life balance of the employees. They continuously strive to cater to their employees needs. They listen to their employees needs and allow for input prior to any planned changes.

      Cons

      Management is not consistent throughout the company. More training is required for management to treat employees consistently, particularly inherent bias, but it is getting better and Suncor has started to address this issue.

      Pros

      Comp and Time off is all

      Cons

      A toxic and hostile work environment that has a coat of paint to pretend to be a "best in class: employer Your experience here is 100% based on who you are as a person (race, social class, family connections). Even small details like what neighborhood you grew up in matter. Incompetent leaders who kissed up and kicked down their entire career. Now in key positions trying to be digital leaders that they are clearly not. Long history of using NDAs to silence mistreated employees similar to what NBC and CBS did to harassment victims. Leaders are literally coached on how to pick docile employees who "fit" aka won't report/sue them.

      In need in a culture change

      May 4, 2021 - Prefer to Remain Anonymous in Calgary, AB

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good benefit plan and paid days off/flex days

      Cons

      The company has been on a journey of many years to try to get to a place where trust amongst employees and leaders exists and made very little progress. There are a lot of words around this, everyone can acknowledge there is a need to course correct, yet the majority take the easy road and aren't willing to put in the work to start the change. Low levels of trust can impact many different things - engagement, motivation, morale, high absenteeism, poor performance, etc.

      Overall, pretty great

      Pros

      Suncor is working really hard to create an inclusive and diverse workspace - as every company it is not perfect but you can tell that the executive team is giving it their all. The pay and benefits are pretty substantial. Suncor is big on development, so if you put yourself out there, you can get great opportunities for growth even without fully switching your job title

      Cons

      Booms and busts of the oil economy can lead to lay-offs, stress within some team members, and significant change in requirements from management to make decisions (con if you don't like constant change and tight deadlines)
