        Disapproves of CEO

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

        Pros

        New control room and equipment. On the ground floor for Lng Home every day.

        Cons

        Poor management, information not being passed around effectively. 2 rounds of redundancy in 2 years.

        Advice to Management

        Second round of redundancy was not required.. You lost good operators and kept average ones. Your still losing good members and now you’re re-gearing to replace the members you made redundant.

          Former Employee - Customer Service 
          Doesn't Recommend

          I worked at Origin Energy full-time

          Pros

          Working with great people on my floor. Before changes were made within my department, the atmosphere and company culture were great. Now it's just boring and you never interact with other people than the ones you sit next to. Pay is great compared to jobs in similar roles. The KPI's have changed and there's some months you probably won't hit it all but if you're lucky you can. Only reason I was here for more than a year...

          Cons

          Poor management. Managers are hardly available for support and are never there when you actually need them. Whenever a customer wants to speak to a team leader, 9 times out of 10 there will be no one and you have to request a call back (which also never gets actioned until at least a week later). They also frequently get people to step up and look after teams temporarily, the people are ok but they arent equipped at...

          Advice to Management

          Think about australia's future and stop putting roles off shore. We should be upskilling our workers first and providing them with opportunities for growth. The higher or more specific roles (that arent the generic sales and service) are going off-shore and current employees aren't able to grow professionally due to this. Management really needs to put young working australians first and not just think about how to save...
