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

    Pros

    Great colleagues and social culture. A lot of potential.

    Cons

    Management is entirely out of their depth managing the transformation they are undertaking. Many leaders in roles they have very little understanding of and feedback is largely disregarded (if it's ever asked for). So much wasted talent and opportunities by a lack of vision, direction and even understanding of how to thrive in the current environment and in an increasingly online marketplace. So far behind now that they can't afford to modernise and waste every opportunity they have to do so. Stability of the company is often in question and it often looks that they are falling further behind.

    I have been working at Alinta Energy full-time

    Pros

    Aside from how they treated their staff at a critical time, Alinta had good compensation and benefits, and good work/life balance. However, it is a shame they do not value their employees when push comes to shove.

    Cons

    Alinta did the bare minimum to keep their staff amongst COVID struggles. Started getting rid of people within a month of WFH with no notice. People come first was not a moto Alinta followed, and the fact that they keep it as their value is a joke. Got to wonder if the execs even took a pay cut? Could have made them part time, could have cut their salaries, but leaving them unemployed at a time like this with families and kids to care for...makes you think. I have seen people sacrifice a lot to work hard for Alinta, imagine being let go when you need to rely on your job more than anything.

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

    Pros

    Leaders are approachable, present and decent people, and most people have the autonomy and support to actually get their own ideas up and implemented. Doesn't have the oppresive feel of a larger corporate with too many people doing bs jobs and creating ridiculous bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Not yet as sophisticated in terms of systems and processes as larger competitors, and so it can be tough for people who expect everything to be laid out for them.

    Pros

    Alinta Energy has a great work culture and is growing at a very fast pace. Located at a central location, this organisation has a lot more to offer including flexible working arrangements, learning opportunities, career growth and a competitive salary.

    The fast paced environment isn't for everyone. You would need to be proactive with a desire to make a difference.
