    I have been working at Ausgrid full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great pay and conditions. The work is very interesting. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Lack of job security. There has been continuous restructuring and uncertainty for the last 5 years, and that will continue for 5 more years. The austerity is costly and counter-productive. You want to buy a box of tissues? You'll need approval from the Chief Engineer.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Ausgrid full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent pay and conditions despite Ausgrid trying to screw employees as much as possible in recent negotiations

    Cons

    Management constantly trying to improve the place is a pain, having the opposite impact. CCR is a joke, constantly restructuring makes no sense, knee jerk reactions to incidents, never use common sense. Typical business model that encourages brown nosing and diplomacy to gain promotion.

    I have been working at Ausgrid full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and conditions, many good people to develop your career with if you have the drive

    Cons

    A multitude of rules developed from knee jerk reactions rather than logic, can be very wasteful in some areas and very reluctant to spend money in others

    I worked at Ausgrid for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Definitely the mateship with other workers. The pay and conditions that use to be but still was very good when i left.

    Cons

    In the last couple of years the moral within the workers has deteriorated a lot .The organisation had turned onto a bureaucratic nightmare. in later management took on the view that the majority of employee were "in for themselves"view and it seemed there was always some junior manager policing them.

    I have been working at Ausgrid full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent pay and conditions. Rostered day off, people broadly stick to their hours. Ability to take annual leave at half pay.

    Cons

    Intensely political and not at all technocratic, which is very dangerous territory for an engineering organisation. The current cohort of branch managers are inexperienced but cocky, and decisions are made with little concern for evidence-based decision making or even basic engineering principles. This is an incredibly demoralised workforce, and even the people who were still passionate about trying to get things done in 2015 have all given up. It is a terribly sad endpoint for the once great engineering culture inherited from the Electricity Commission of NSW.
