Exciting insight into the electrical industry with lots of support from staff.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Ausgrid

ProsGreat opportunity to gain insight into the electrical industry with support from other staff. You are always being given challenges and able to learn from theme everyday.

ConsThe distributors in NSW are going through a merger at the moment so their employment is being affected.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou are always going to be met with change in the workforce. Be prepared for it, embrace it for there are lots of opportunities to learn and enhance yourself in the workforce.

Ultra conservative autocratic Culture

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Sydney (Australia)

I worked at Ausgrid full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSome departments are progressively striving to apply modern technology

ConsVery rigid departmental silos where effort is duplicated. Business processes are highly inefficient due to the requirements each department demands for cross-departmental activities. The autocratic management culture results in impotent managers focussed on politics rather than efficiency.

Advice to Senior ManagementEven though I oppose outsourcing or privatization of public assets, this may be the only way to bring this company into the current century and reduce costs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
