Good group of people to work with, however, the management team lacks proper guidance and is too concerned with making themselves look good. Fairly hard to get used to living in Dalby if you have not previously lived in a country town.

The Brisbane office is reasonably good but the workstations are tightly packed together.
Their salary package relies heavily on a highly complex bonus system.

The method of payment of the bonus is poor bordering on unethical. Payment of the annual bonus is spread over the following 3 years. When you leave the bonus that has been accrued in the previous 2 years is forfeited.

There is a heavy Shell influence on the working procedures
Pros
Good location in Brisbane CBD. Reasonable base salary
Cons
Don't rely on the bonus when assessing an offer, They quote a maximum of 25% but it never gets anywhere close.

I was a Drill Stem Testing Rig Operator. I worked in the field, designed, built and operated testing equipment.

I was on even time roster during the CSG boom in Queensland. the work was good, but my manager was widely regarded as a waste of oxygen.
Pros
Good work, good roster
Cons
Incompetent and dishonest manager

When I first started working at Arrow Energy, it was only a small company with around 13 employees in Dalby, It was a great place to work
The culture was very safety orientated

The Salary/ Benefits were excellent, and the staff I worked with were amazing people.

Family business with great work life balance. Unfortunately a downturn in work initiated redundancies within the company.

The environment was ever changing and this created unclear objectives for project delivery. At the same time, it presented many opportunities for pragmatic workers who were nimble enough to see the changing of direction early. A good place to work at for challenges however not one for people who like a clear, consistant objective to deliver against.

Lacks strategic direction
shareholders not aligned in vision

Constant reorgs and redundancies

KPIs are short term focussed which effects long term goals

Staff are largely fantastic and experienced

Excellent salary and benefits. Overall a good company with great employees.
DomGas projects are ill defined and larger projects lack economic justification.

It seems the big 3 established CSG firms got the best people and Arrow got the dregs. The entire company culture was toxic, toxic people who were managers should not be working anywhere, least of all in resources managing people.
Pros
None
Cons

Extremely poor management

Comment – 6 April 2016
Simply the nastiest aggregation of people I have ever encountered in my career. Certain 'managers' ran their shifts like it was their own social club - if you were not one of their 'buttons', you were an outsider singled out for systematic workplace harassment and bullying. The behavior of groups of certain employees was infantile and disgraceful in the extreme. Much like the worst part of being back at junior high school.
