    I have been working at Origin Energy full-time

    Pros

    If you manage to stay under the radar the team worked well together.

    Cons

    Silos ,power struggles and bullying prevent ANYTHING BEING DONE.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting the most toxic because it seems easier that firing them. They inevitably push your most loyal hard working out.

    I have been working at Origin Energy full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Lack of clear Retail strategy. Ruled by empire builders. People management / KPI setting processes lax. Too many restructures.

    Advice to Management

    No workplace is perfect, but 40% ‘Recommend to a Friend’ rating suggests something needs to change. Address the ‘Cons’ in this post and things might turn around. Fingers crossed on ‘Retail Transformation’.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pay is above industry norm. Rapid organisation churn allows for opportunities for those who stay.

    Cons

    Career asphyxiation guaranteed through absence of vision and managerial courage to reform the cultural barriers to a modern day organisation. Competent employees of all ages, races and followings are treated equally in being chased out the door to maintain the status quo.

    Advice to Management

    Treat data, information and automation in greater regard. How many IT PSV’s have gone off this year? This company was equally the best and worst I worked for and a real shame that back room deals destroyed the competitive advantage that Origin once held in integrated gas

    Pros

    Very high bonus if you join as senior staff

    Cons

    Completely toxic working environment. Ruthless Management and policies that treat employees like disposable garbage, and has created a cut throat culture. No loyalty or morals in the Company. Worst place I have worked at in my career.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like garbage
