    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good pay, decent bonuses, interesting work, good training, dynamic industry. Good to see the company trying to anticipate the threats from disruptive innovation..

    Cons

    Incessant re-structures, bureaucratic, bloated management structure, workforce suffering from change fatigue and damaged morale. The organisational restructures repeatedly take place with politics and power-struggles taking precedence over engagement with the workforce and understanding the actual changes needed. I've endured over 7 different re-structures, and in spite of promises to engage with staff and teams - I've never been approached to discuss our work or what we do. Seems like management only talk to management. Lessons do not get learned and issues do not get exposed nor dealt with. No opportunities to proceed. Management incapable of engaging meaningfully with staff. Unable to have purposeful conversations around career path and opportunities for progression. Immersedin politics. Questionable integrity from some quarters in how decsisions, particularly with the integration of external consultants into the leadership team. Middle management acknowledging that some high-level decisions and motives are questionable and bordering on graft - but unwilling to challenge or escalate issues. Very disappointing and typifies the culture of not being willing to challenge the status quo.
