    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.
