    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Phillips 66 full-time

    Pros

    Benefit scheme is difficult to beat. Great pension package, matching share scheme, free gym, free lunches, GP on site etc.

    Cons

    The downside of a great benefit scheme is that no one leaves and the workforce has become very stale with little chance of any career progression unless you are handpicked by leadership team. Closing the Warwick office will alleviate some of these issues as the deadwood are forced to leave but how long before the same happens at the Humber and London offices? If you're not at the h/o in Houston you're pretty much forgotten about. No communication between teams across locations.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Phillips 66 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work life balance and somewhat job security

    Cons

    This company is stuck in the 1960s and refuses to adapt to the times for some reason. With Covid-19, employees started working from home with no issues, but leadership forced all employees to come back in the office starting on May 4th. The CEO's reasoning was that employees are more productive and have extra "creativity" while in the office, which is simply not true. Now Covid counts are rising in the office and leadership is not being transparent or requiring quarantines even for employees that work in the same pods as their Covid positive coworkers. Also Phillips 66 remains one of the only oil and gas companies (and companies period) that is fully back in the office. Other peer companies reversed their return to work plans once Covid cases started rising in Houston. This is ironic since one of Phillips 66's core values is "safety" but they clearly don't care about the safety of their employees. There is also a lack of development opportunities past the early career phase, a lack of diversity especially in leadership (just google the executive team and board of directors), and dysfunctional, disjointed operations across the refineries and corporate offices.

    I have been working at Phillips 66 full-time for 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.

    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.
