    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Origin Energy for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some of the employees at Origin are truly motivated, and willing to work hard to achieve good outcomes for their team, division and the company.

    Cons

    Many employees at Origin are still just along for the ride, or held back by fearful management who are not prepared to back their employees to do a good job, so stick with the status quo of do nothing - which of course means going backwards.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from previous failures rather than assume that because you've failed once, you'll always fail, and that an external consultant will help you avoid failure next time - they won't, they'll just charge you a lot to manage that failure.

    "First couple of years where productive and enjoyable. Last years were stressful and thankless."

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Origin Energy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some good people struggling to do good jobs even though the goalposts keep moving on them.

    Cons

    Company expanded too quickly. The foundation of the company are crumbling despite the shiny exterior. The company thinks out sourcing will fix what they could not fix but it has made it worse.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management should buy a parachute. They will not see the crash coming. Middle management is full of career 'Yes' men and women. everybody else will be outsourced to people who won't care.
