    I have been working at Phillips 66 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation, retirement benefits and bonus program.

    Cons

    Management tends to continue adding responsibilities to individuals until they have to choose between poorly doing everything asked or succeed at some tasks while dropping the ball on others. They do, however, reward those people that are the best jugglers.

    Pros

    Benefits
    Co-worker relationships
    Safety culture
    Salary
    The company has several divisions, making it sustainable in the long term

    Cons

    Lack of training for certain positions. Management frequently changes course and processes. Management constantly treats employees as though the company is not profitable. Unrealistic expectations on interactions with lower ranked customers.

    Advice to Management

    The employee surveys are not giving you a clear understanding of the negative and difficult environment. Managers have are lacking in communication and employee development skills. HR is not solving any problems.

    Spend more time talking to average customers to really understand business concerns.

    Pros

    Phillips 66 is an ethical workplace with dedicated employees. It is a good place to work both people-wise and overall compensation package. If you work hard you'll have the opportunity to advance.

    Cons

    It can be a demanding environment where sometimes it seems like your efforts are never enough. At a certain level your career advancement is influenced by your internal network over your ability.

    Advice to Management

    It would be worthwhile to do look backs on personnel and business decisions. This would lead to more effective management

    I worked at Phillips 66 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people. Great benefits. Overall stable. For those just beginning their career, the internship program is top notch.

    Cons

    Phillips 66 does not value experience coming in from other companies. You get the feeling they are hiring you because of your knowledge and experience. Later, if you make recommendations that are new or have a viewpoint that differs from the status quo you will get the “That’s not how we do it at Phillips 66” line. It’s exceedingly frustrating.

    Within IT, questionable decisions are made about and by leadership. For example, internally promoting someone into a senior leadership position that has zero experience in that domain.

    Advice to Management

    It’s better to actually be transparent than to talk about it.

    Find jobs for the good employees that have kept things working and still want to work
