    An incredible time with an incredible company

    Global Supply Chain Intern (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsConocoPhillips sponsored an incredible amount of collaboration within its supply chain function. Developing systems to look at total cost of ownership in its procurement, the company understood the importance of long-range planning.

    ConsFinding itself as a new company, only about a year after the spinoff, Conoco is still figuring out who it is, what it wants to be, and how to wield its status as the largest independent in the industry.

    Good experience so far

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
    Bartlesville, OK

    ProsThe pay and benefits are great, good people, helpful people, generally set up employees for success.

    ConsThe location is not great.. Bartlesville is about 60 miles from Tulsa. And hours can be very long.

    This has been a great company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou can have a chance to work all over the world or you can have a chance to stay in your home town if they don't sell your location and even if they do the company that will buy these locations are of good quality on the norm..

    ConsYou feel like you are just a number in some cases but at
     The local level you feel like like it is a small business. You do not have control of the way the money is spent some times witch can be frustrating when yo use it wasted and your bonus is attach to the money spent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet's start
     Watching the small thing a little more.

    It's political, but the work is rewarding.

    Contractor (Former Employee)
    Bartlesville, OK

    ProsI enjoyed the work and the resources the company provided in order to be successful.

    ConsI did not like the politics and how there was office bullying in the department. If your group has over thirty analysts and associates, then watch out for clicks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI'm optimistic about this company, but see many things that need to change in order before people will be truly satisfied with their jobs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fantastic experience

    IT Manager (Current Employee)
    Bartlesville, OK

    ProsExciting company, in the midst of transformation. Aggressive growth, and high rewards. Great work-life balance, great benefits, good culture.

    Since the company split (Phillips 66 is the new, separate downstream company), the company is reinventing itself as a low-risk, high-return company.

    ConsSomewhat bureaucratic, but normal for a large company. Somewhat challenging to interact with colleagues across the globe, or even understand what's going on in other areas of the business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up. Very happy to be part of the team.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
