Thread regarding Phillips 66 layoffs

Future of Emerging Energy

Let’s see if I have this right. AE66 was supposed to drive transformation, innovation and improved financial position. Instead it has delivered minimal innovation, nothing truly transformative to the industry, increased costs, decreased quality and record voluntary attrition in IT due to questionable ethical conduct of key leaders.
And yet someone thinks it’s a good idea to put the person accountable for this in charge of our Emerging Energy strategy and execution?

Greetings,

I am an employee from Valero Port Arthur refinery. Valero, Phillips 66 and other energy companies are the bedrock of my community. We work for different companies and work for the same industry. I don’t know who Z is or AE66, my buddies from Lake Charles refinery take pride in the work they do with electronic work permits and managing turnaround maintenance on iPads. I also see Lake Charles refinery use drones for incident response after mother nature’s anger with weather. When the world is turning its back and calling our jobs as dirty jobs… our industry is investing in us. I heard Rich Harbison who used to be the refinery manager for lake Charles at one of the community events and Rich’s message on safety and using technology to attract talent to our community inspired me.

God bless you and God bless our industry.

Z has sold the biggest bill of goods of anyone since P.T. Barnum, and at least his hype had some reality to it. She is unethical, demoralizing, and the most disliked person in the company.

The entire strategy is to cut costs as much as possible by decreasing the workforce and requiring employees to do jobs that were once done by 2-3 people. There is little if any work-life balance and vacations are difficult to take and stressful because you often have to continue working during them. Another big part of the strategy is outsourcing as many jobs as possible to the cheapest provider which results in substandard quality. The morale of almost everyone in her orbit is at rock bottom.

This is a company that no longer cares for its employees and now brings in almost all of its top and mid-level people from the outside.

I don’t recall the original scope and budget, buuuut I think we’re so far off it’s not even funny…well ok, it’s funny but in a bad way. From a financial standpoint, it’s been a cluster, changing contractors mid project, all the jerking back and forth of people between roles, horrible testing and training of end users coupled with snarky project leads, it’s great! We were sold a significantly overhyped bill of goods and we beer bonged the AE66 kool aid when we should have recognized it for what it was, the next iteration of SAP. Let’s get the basics done first and ensure things work correctly, THEN we can try to realize upside with innovation. We went yolo ba--s out coupled with all the buzz words and look how things have worked out. Good luck to refining, y’all are really in for it. Rodeo Renewed, pssshhhh, economics based on tax credits, reeeeeally smart.
