    I worked at Origin Energy for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent pay and re-numeration levels Excellent office and environment Excellent work life balance and considerations Good colleagues to work with. IT systems pretty good.

    Cons

    Sometimes too much paperwork, too much reporting and lines of management. Really difficult to influence change. Very risk adverse. Whilst my colleagues were good, sometimes working with other teams was really hard, as each team has own agendas and targets.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Origin Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to big projects, company provided fruit and biscuits.

    Cons

    Origin is not really one company. It is a bunch of groups that don't talk to each other all sharing a company logo, and that is within the one department! Many layers of management, very little direction. Projects and operations people are always butting heads. Massive engineering staff turnover.
