have fun and comfortable

Pros
free training
Cons
8hours per day

I have loved working for Origin for over 10 Years - the people are the best part. Change is constant - so you need to be able to adapt and be agile!

Full of inappropriate behaviour
Senior Engineer (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD16 May 2017
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.
Pros
Pay well
Cons
Full of corporate psychopaths

Toxic company to work for
Recoveries team Leader (Former Employee) –  Melbourne City Centre VIC27 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.
Pros
good salary

It Was the Best Experience Every
Undergraduate Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Milton QLD7 April 2017
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, Australia3 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.
Pros
Lovely teas and lunch rooms.
Cons
hassles and meetings

Amazing people to work with
Resolutions Consultant (Current Employee) –  Adelaide SA3 April 2017
The people you work with make the job bearable. It's not an easy job, but if you go in, do your job and leave everything at work, you will succeed. I would recommend for thick skinned people.
Pros
Organises fun things to keep up morale.
Cons
Difficult Customers

Collection Resolutions Consultant (Current Employee) –  Melbourne VIC Exhibition St13 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.
Pros
Friendly People to work with
Cons
Not enough Support from Management or Reconition
