    I worked at Origin Energy full-time

    Pros

    Company with good values and genuine drive to service energy to people as best as possible. Good flexible working environment and atmosphere in most teams.

    Cons

    Have to deal with lack of IT service standards and lack of accountability when issues persist.. The amount of redtape makes changes difficult to happen particularly in the IT space. Major change initiatives are often not well managed. Lack of communication between departments with some unofficial chinese walls in place at times.

    Advice to Management

    Reform the IT department structures and values. Implement levels of service standards with maximum days to resolve. If not resolves, it is flagged and the team has to answer to it or else, impacts IT KPIs and bonus.
