    I have been working at Phillips 66 full-time (More than 5 years)

    I worked at Phillips 66 full-time

    Pros

    Pay, location in West Houston. Great in the beginning, but reality sets in. Good experience to leverage for next career position.

    Cons

    Politics. They terminate strong employees under the radar right before bonus is paid out in February. They secretly and inhumanely call you downstairs and terminate you and not allowed to return to the office. This is typical management practice that I have seen in all areas of the company. Ratings are not based on the true "What" and "How" system, but by subjective ratings by managers that should not be in those roles.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the buddy club atmosphere and stop trying to mold everyone to the same P66 specification. Treat people with respect, which is a core value not followed.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. 6% pension. Good health care and dental. If you choose the HSA plan the company gives $500 to an individual, $750 to married couple and/or domestic partners and $1000 to couples with 1 child. Also nice VCIP/bonus plan with the % depending on job grade. New hires get 7%, then it goes to 10%, 12.5% and then 15% of your base pay as you climb the ladder.

    Cons

    Dominated by white men at all levels of the organization. Especially Commercial, Refining, Transportation and Lubricants. Marketing and Finance are a little better. Managers tend to hire people who remind them of themselves, so the cycle continues. Company is less diverse than other O&G companies. Maybe because they are Houston based. Don't know. Difficult for women and minorities to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Increase your number of female managers and supervisors. You have the talent.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, new office building. There is some room to grow if you fit their model.

    Cons

    Good Ole boy club mostly. The company does a really poor job of attracting and promoting minorities. There are no people of color in Executive or BU level leadership positions. There seems to be no focus on developing diverse talent. The Bartlesville culture is alive and kicking in Houston.

    Advice to Management

    Enter the 21st century and recruit talented people who aren't middle-aged white men.
