    Pros

    Company is competitive on pay and benefits are priced competitive.

    Cons

    There are pockets of terrible leadership sprinkled throughout the company. The system perpetuates their behaviors because there is an unwillingness to remove bad managers. Although the pay is competitive, the system is set up so it doesn’t engender long term loyalty. Also, if you live outside the immediate area, expect to community 1+ hours each way.

    Advice to Management

    The tide has turned in the energy industry. You are losing some of your best talent because the company doesn’t invest in making managers better. You are creating a workforce of people with no loyalty because of the ratings system which ties performance to unequal ratings pools.

    I have been working at Phillips 66 full-time

    Pros

    Awesome culture. Great people to work with. Benefits are incredible. When people leave the company, many of them try to come back. Beautiful campus. It feels like a family. Lot's of developmental opportunities.

    Cons

    Like with all communities, there's politics and general frustration with groups/management/etc. Biggest issue - culture is trying to become more "formal" and there's not much flexibility to work from home as a standard. It depends on your boss. In addition, there's a lot of diversity and inclusion efforts going on, but for some people, it may not feel enough at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Market trends show employees are working in fun, less informal environments, with a strong work/life balance. Phillips 66 can improve in that aspect I think. I would also say where the company recruits from could become more diversified as well.

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

    Pros

    Stable company with new office building. Reasonable pay but targets industry average. Good on-going education opportunities. Intelligent and competitive workforce

    Cons

    Changes in benefits costs have increased costs to employees that effectively negates annual pay raises. Changes in thrift mutual funds eliminated good performing funds with low costs and replaced with new or low performing funds at higher costs. "Big Brother" attitude with example of new rule of no texting, talking, or using cell phones while walking in the office. Must stand in specific locations on mats to use cell phones! Anybody working less than 6-7 years hasn't realized the decline and how much better it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Reverse trend toward increased separation between management and employees Recognize that increasing benefits costs for employees are really pay cuts.

    I have been working at Phillips 66 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. Nice break areas, although they are a football field away from your desk.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities for people with years of experience. The foot in the door doesn't work here, if you start out a lower level expect to stay there. Rude employees, stuck up attitudes. Don't expect to do what you are hired for which stifles growth in your own field. They spend a lot of money on things that are insulting to employees... ie: the 3rd grade signs that say you must stand on this mat (looks like a welcome mat) to use your phone. So silly and a waste of money.

    Advice to Management

    Every department is understaffed. If work is going to be pawned off on the lower level employees at least let it be something in their own department that will allow learning opportunities and growth in the field in which they are hired for.
