    I worked at Origin Energy full-time

    Pros

    Great working culture. Outcomes focused organisation. Adopted flexible working conditions. Great career opportunities.

    Cons

    Business units tend to operate in Silos. Reward and recognition program is close to non existent. Employee offers could be more competitive when compared to other retailers employee offer.

    I worked at Origin Energy full-time

    Pros

    There are great people supporting you within the team and helping the customer is a huge perk because you feel you made a difference

    Cons

    Doing more with less and constant restructuring makes you feel insecure and in the dark about the real reason behind the changes

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the number of middle aged white men in senior roles and demonstrate positive discrimination towards female hires. Promote from within and reduce external consultants advice on restructuring.

    I worked at Origin Energy for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great working relationship across different departments

    Cons

    No priority was put in place for Graduate rotation or pay review once they get off the program. Not much career progression within the organisation

    Pros

    Good pay, and family friendly employment benefits

    Seemed very disorganised and never able to lock in a clear strategy and direction. Attempt to address this recently, hopefully will be successful.

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

      Pros

      Good Pay friendly Security Good transport to and fro work Some friendly staff members Many branches interstate

      Cons

      As a current employee, this company from my experience, the company is not culturally diverse and very biased towards minorities. (If you are caucasian, you have all the opportunities in the world and support but once you are a minority wish yourself goodluck. you have to prove your self worth) Very bad culture in the company. Products and service is really bad. The company do not care about their employees, customers...

      Advice to Management

      Get your act together and start taking more initiative. Get rid of the corporate politics or bias in the system.

      I have been working at Origin Energy full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Culture!!! really open minded, incredibly supportive of work life balance with no BS around it. Real willingness to do things better. Working as a big team. I love it!

      Cons

      The size of the company makes it difficult to work as a unit and sometimes don't take advantage of cross bus unit strengths

      Advice to Management

      keep doing what you're doing! keep it real!!
