    I have been working at Alinta Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Since the change of ownership the company has been on the up with a noticeable change in energy and focus. Great place to learn and grow; they still have a smaller company feel but with a portfolio that has sufficient span to learn and grow.

    Cons

    The systems and processes within the company are heaving under the current growth; these are being upgraded but these things take time.

    Advice to Management

    The growth of the company should present good opportunities for internal promotions; look at the talent within the company to grow and develop. Be careful to preserve the dynamic and nimble culture of the company as growth brings with it the tendency to create bureaucracy

    I have been working at Alinta Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Alinta has a real buzz about it. We are working through an exciting period of change that is happening fast and everyone is part of the journey. One of our values is 'One Alinta' and I see this being lived regularly through all our activities and we all work towards the same goals by playing on our strengths across the business. People are friendly and open, it's a place where you can feel at home. If there is something...

    Cons

    Alinta is a business that has grown very quickly in the past 12-18 months and is therefore a maturing business in some aspects. The good thing is they listen and so a range of things are being put in place to address change such as a strong onboarding program, CEO roadshows,

    Advice to Management

    People appreciate your efforts to connect in and share information regularly particularly as we continue to grow, keep this up.

    Pros

    Nice office Free drinks and casual Fridays

    Cons

    The liars, cheats and conmen are rewarded in this business due to a lack of thorough checks on sales. Those who talk the talk who may be completely ripping the business off with fake contracts are often the ones who receive promotions due to them selling their soul to the boys club. As long as you are seen as cool, chat about cars and good looks help too, you will do really well at Alinta. By really well I mean...

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, do audits on your workers and sales. Call data would have proved that people were taking the micky for years but in stead you prefer to promote them because you get on with them? Embarrassing

    I worked at Alinta Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some people are amazing and trying to do their best but the rest are on the blind leading the blind band wagon! And the good ones aren't sticking around

    Cons

    Honestly this place is chaos! Weak leadership from the executive and senior managers coupled with a huge lack of knowledge and experience in the areas they are leading all because the "Boys Club" mentioned numerous times in other reviews. Technology is a disaster, they just can't seem to sort it out - blame /command and control culture, lack of innovation and greed by the business is stifling the IT group. The culture...

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of the sand! Stop the boys club and make your execs and leaders accountable for the decisions and mistakes they are making. Stop punishing the smart guys for the ineptness of The Chosen Ones! Think more about the poor people who are actually keeping this place up and running by making sure they have the right technology, support and leaders -preferably that aren't stuck in the dark ages!!

    I have been working at Alinta Energy full-time

    Pros

    Lots of free food and drinks, a lot of the people are really lovely

    Cons

    Management do no want you to grow, they want you to shut up and do as you’re told. They don’t respect the ideas, opinions or expertise of anyone “lower” on the ladder. If you’re on the low rung of the corporate ladder, you have no growth opportunities or support. There is also no where to go to complain about your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who are skilled in management, don’t put people in positions because you’re friends or they’ve been around forever. New coworkers or those lower on the corporate ladder are not automatic PAs for higher management.
