    I have been working at Origin Energy full-time

    Pros

    It is flexible and well paid.

    Cons

    Instability, lack of accountability, overly complicated systems/approvals/processes for a company that is nationally based and not that big.

    Advice to Management

    Get the basics right and worry about all the bells and whistles once you have that down pat. Bring in people at senior leadership levels that have breadth and depth of experience across industries and proven success in their roles not just those that manage up well. Stop overpaying senior people who are not performing and then don't leave because they won't get their Origin salaries anywhere else.

    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Origin Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    New control room and equipment. On the ground floor for Lng Home every day.

    Cons

    Poor management, information not being passed around effectively. 2 rounds of redundancy in 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Second round of redundancy was not required.. You lost good operators and kept average ones. Your still losing good members and now you’re re-gearing to replace the members you made redundant.

    Former Employee - Customer Service 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Origin Energy full-time

    Pros

    Working with great people on my floor. Before changes were made within my department, the atmosphere and company culture were great. Now it's just boring and you never interact with other people than the ones you sit next to. Pay is great compared to jobs in similar roles. The KPI's have changed and there's some months you probably won't hit it all but if you're lucky you can. Only reason I was here for more than a year...

    Cons

    Poor management. Managers are hardly available for support and are never there when you actually need them. Whenever a customer wants to speak to a team leader, 9 times out of 10 there will be no one and you have to request a call back (which also never gets actioned until at least a week later). They also frequently get people to step up and look after teams temporarily, the people are ok but they arent equipped at...

    Advice to Management

    Think about australia's future and stop putting roles off shore. We should be upskilling our workers first and providing them with opportunities for growth. The higher or more specific roles (that arent the generic sales and service) are going off-shore and current employees aren't able to grow professionally due to this. Management really needs to put young working australians first and not just think about how to save...
