    I have been working at Suncor for less than a year

    Pros

    - good salary overall - fast-paced environment: you can learn a lot if you observe

    Cons

I list this as a con since an overwhelming number of employees belong to this group (guarantee at least 5 if not more Indians per floor), which makes me question if it's a company political thing.
