    I worked at Phillips 66 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are good and above average. Good office building.

    Cons

    As an experienced hire, new views were not welcomed. The company is far behind the industry in my discipline which I was hired to help, but in the end that help was actually not wanted. The supervision wants everyone in the office everyday so they can "make sure they are working" as quoted by my supervisor. No remote working here even though I had a corporate job with all the refineries. There is a general lack of trust in making decisions, management can and will overrule without seeking to understand the details and "gut feel" - this makes their risk higher than many organizations. Decisions are hierarchical so it takes forever to decide on many simple concepts and plans. Long term strategies to improve are non-existent, only "keep it running today". Without longer term vision and goals, it is demoralizing to work there. At the end I was sad I could not help and advise others looking to hire on that unless they need the good benefits, long-term self-growth is nil unless you are friends with those in high places.

    Pros

    With the right supervision you can be recognized for superior work.

    Cons

    Some requirements for time in the job for promotion should be reviewed. Personnel should be promoted on job performance and job related factors not how long you have been in the job.

    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 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Lots of opportunities to get into different fields in the company. Phillips 66 will pay for your CPA study materials and reimburse you for all 4 parts of your CPA exam! The best part is you don’t have to have a CPA to be an accountant with this company. Wonderful team atmosphere with management that supports your goals.

    Cons

    As of now (not counting COVID-19 era) Phillips 66 doesn’t support working remotely. There may be a change eventually, but I don’t think it will happen soon.
