Sales Person (Former Employee) – Adelaide SA – 1 July 2017
walked down on the road and goes door to each house and try to sales as much as you can. Improve my English skills and more confidence to talk in front of people, having conversation while working with your workmate to build and learn new skills between both of us.
good culture, good exposure on one of Australia's largest CSG projects in APLNG, good team work, project teams are silo'd, not the best contracting strategy implemented causing projects to cost more and schedule was delayed
This was a great company before APLNG came along. Now all the good senior management (original players) were pushed out to support incoming personnel who are supported due to their connections and being YES people. Such a shame it was a great place in the early days and there is no loyalty. If you are good at playing games, this is the place for you. HR only support management and not employees, the behaviour and cause to employee health was terrible - HR should be ashamed. So much bullying going on it's disgraceful that people are so unprofessional and not held accountable for their actions. Bullies should have no place in any organisation or management team regardless of who they know.
Recoveries team Leader (Former Employee) – Melbourne City Centre VIC – 27 April 2017
This company do not look after their employees, they have no work life balance although they claim to promote this. They do not recognise hard working employees and do not take work place bullying seriously. There is also no career progression unless you are friends with someone higher up, favoured employees tend to be direct appointed in to roles without any knowledge or experience. Males are also favoured in career progression. There is no support, training or coaching for management.
I worked for Origin over the Summer break doing the Summer Student Vacation Program and enjoyed every single bit of it. I was placed in a team that consisted of experienced engineers from different backgrounds and they showed me how to apply my engineering knowledge to the workforce. The atmosphere was so positive and welcoming. Just overall this company has a positive work environment and would love to return one day.
Corporate level positive, department level negative
DRAWING OFFICE COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Melbourne, Victoria, Australia – 3 April 2017
Workplace culture preached positive things and tried to show it, but was not demonstrated at the department level where I worked. Manager was petty and cheap and only counting days to retirement. The office was beautiful and had lovely amenities but the cost was exorbitant--and bled the bank. When there were project losses and accidents, they cut people and production to protect profits, rather than protecting their intellectual assets.
I learnt alot with OE and can now expand on those experiences. Changeing environment become very tiresome and generally a fairly depressing environment for most. So much negativity that was becoming infectious.
Collection Resolutions Consultant (Current Employee) – Melbourne VIC Exhibition St – 13 January 2017
Typical day is making sure business as usual work is finalise by the end of the day. I learnt how to deal with people and manage my workload. People are friendly at work but you get some bad eggs one or two. Hardest part of the job is not enough support from Management. Most enjoyable part is working with people who are willing to help and care which makes it more satisfying then just doing the job itself.
