    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Suncor provides an incredibly valuable global resource and feeds heavily into the economic growth of Canada. This is something we should be proud of and it should be actively promoted across Canada.

    Finance department focuses on bottom-line and don't truly invest in their people. Many people in finance feel unempowered and aren't provided growth opportunities. Many managers are working managers and not true leaders

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and promote for not only technical skills but also leadership skills. Many employees have suffered at the hands of bad leadership that continuously get promoted. Dig deeper to find out why finance engagement scores are so low and don't turn a blind eye things going on.
