      I have been working at Western Power full-time

      Pros

      The amount of people being restructured or made redundant is creating new roles which allow fast career progression.

      Cons

      No job security as you can easily become one of those to be let go. Customer focus has become a political tool for resume padding at the compromise of corporate objectives and good practice. Poor accountability and lack of defined processes across functions due to the ongoing restructure carousel.

      Advice to Management

      Hire more staff, the volumes of ongoing overtime are never met with appropriate undertime, leading to turnover and bad morale.
