    Pros

    Safety is the first priority. Great positive atmosphere to work in. Leaders are very approachable and listen to what people have to say. Excellent opportunities to learn and develop. A company that cares about the environment, future and employees.

    Cons

    I have not heard of any comments from peers or management to support any negative feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Keep raising the bar!

    I have been working at Suncor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay
    Flexible work schedule
    Decent benefits and vacation

    Cons

    Limited room to grow
    You are tagged early on in your career if you are management material. No matter your performance in subsequent roles it's impossible to shake those earlier categorizations.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to talent at all levels. People learn and mature at different times in their career. Best not to shut good employees out of career progression based on their abilities in very early roles.

    Good people and challenging work. Used to be more opportunities but since the oil price crash it's been a lot less.

    Politics in leadership and work life balance if you're ambitious. Expect to work like no hours and you will need to spend a stint in site operations to get ahead
