    I have been working at Suncor full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people coupled with great assets. Made to feel valued and appreciated from day one. Everyone has time to help ensure that your induction goes well. Future looks bright in North Sea with Rosebank Development in UK and Oda in Norway. Great to see investment in long term given recent low oil price. Good Team Spirit.

    Cons

    Given the oil price over the last 2 years there is limited exploration activity in North Sea. Hopefully this will change as the oil price stabilises at +$50.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic nightmare... decisions all made from Calgary and take ages. Slow uptake of new technology and methods of working.

    Good work environment with great pay, benefits and vacation time. Leadership has a clear direction for the future and the company is relatively stable due to the integrated business model.

    Many high performers make for a competitive environment but it drives creativity. Dated systems make for manual workloads but company is currently in process of revamping data systems. Political climate in Canada makes it difficult for the company to grow.
