    I have been working at Phillips 66 full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company stresses Safety and Work Life balance. It has been my experience it is a culture that is lived and not just for public consumption. Pay, Benefits and Yearly bonuses are all excellent.

    Cons

    I would like to see more emphasis placed on 3rd party training. Sometimes it is difficult to get approval for the travel expenses it takes to get training.

    Good Company but doesn't value their own US Citizen or GC Holders.

    I worked at Phillips 66

    Pros

    Good benefits and good culture

    Cons

    They do not value US Citizens. They believe in giving full time to people who are H1 contractors from other countries and post jobs online just for the sake of posting and do not hire US citizens who are actually looking for a job. Many US citizens would be happy to relocate in a town like Bartlesville if big companies hire them instead of H1 contractors. There are US citizens in Oklahoma who are looking for job but these companies just want to value H1 contractors and then they complain they have less employees and nobody is willing to relocate. They hire H1 as full time and then promote them as TL or supervisor and keep them on top of already existing employees without giving a chance to existing employees. They don't even think that once they are sponsored and after some time once they get the authority to stay in US they can easily walk away to some other company.
    They don't speak proper English and they make their money here and walk away.
    Conoco prioritizes US citizens and GC holders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give an opportunity to US citizens and GC holders. There is so much talent hidden in this country. Give chance to them and help the economy.

    I have been working at Phillips 66 full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    My work group has been fantastic. The operators I work with are all very talented and hard working. There seems to be great potential for advancement for those who really want it. Many of the operations and maintenance folks I've worked with are happy where they are, but I've seen some others who wanted to climb the ladder and they have.

    In the operations field, there's plenty of overtime opportunities. As one of the newer hires, I seem to be getting a lot of it. I have great interactions with management, and when something is unclear and there is always time to address it safely.

    Cons

    Most of the operations personnel are very safe workers, and there is a strong safety culture. However the culture does not extend to managements pocket-book. Many of the facilities I've traveled to are extremely outdated, with old hand tools that could easily be replaced by automation of newer equipment in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When it comes to safety and proper equipment for your employees, stop pinching pennies. The right tool may cost $100 more, but it allows operators to work safer and quicker. That sounds like a better trade off to me.

    Also consider raising operator and maintenance pay, especially in areas with nearby competition from more established competitors like Chevron of Shell. If they are offering over $8/hr more, personnel will jump ship in a heartbeat.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are excellent! Everyone is helpful. I have a great supervisor and friendly coworkers. They offer numerous groups and events to integrate new employees with the company. Tons of education opportunities. The atmosphere is relaxed because everyone completes their jobs without the need for constant supervision.

    Cons

    I have not experienced anything negative about the company, any of the employees, or management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am excited to advance and continue my employment!

    I have been working at Phillips 66 full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Pay, it's pretty good as far as i am concerned.
    -matching 401K, that kind of stuff
    -Forward looking right now, as far as i can tell. The talk from management is that they want to "go big or go...somewhere".
    -Some good people, i enjoy being around my co-workers.

    Cons

    -Even though the pay is good, they are stingy on every other decision like mabye investing in infrastructure. Some of us work out of buildings constructed in the 1940s. Hello, oil boom?
    -The confusion, its a company with a legacy, a big one at that, that allows for a concentration of decision making ability. Hey, the PEOPLE make the company..
    -Theres legacy P66 people, and legacy Conoco people and a lot of us late-comers. It's easy to tell who is who. That sometimes causes division.
    -The focus on the interns seems to be a big deal. How about all the people that work day after day to keep the oil flowing?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    POWER TO THE PEOPLE! They are your best asset. Dont allow district micro-managers to rule with iron fists.
      Continue the growth strategy though, it gives us a bit of hope that the paneling wont be on the walls forever and the cobwebs won't be on the equipment for long either.

    I have been working at Phillips 66

    Pros

    Safety is number one with Phillips 66. Environmental stewardship is number two. A great place to learn about so much various types of instrumentation. Great pay, bonus, pension and thrift plan.

    Cons

    Employee performance reviews do not occur. If supervisors think yea or nay of you, you would never know. You have to make your own direction as far as career path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should not tie first line supervisor bonuses to their budgets, etc. Makes the first line supervisor do nothing for people under his/her direction.

    I have been working at Phillips 66 as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company culture is laid back, and everyone works as a team. People have great attitudes which makes work a pleasant environment.

    Cons

    The company could have more structured training. The pay for engineers is better than most companies but not quite as high as the top salaries. But giving up a few grand a year beats working for the majority of those companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep P66 in the same direction as it's currently going and all will be great.
