Ergon Energy is an appalling example of a modern distributor. They are arrogant, lazy, hideously expensive in terms of cost to serve and inefficient. The business is run by Engineers and their understanding of the business they are in is minimal. They feel they should be treated specially because they are a regional distributor, and have gold plated parts of their network. They capitalise think that are not Asset balance sheet item, in lay terms they cook the books.

I worked with Ergon warehouse as a contractor picking & packing requisitions for projects. The job was steady, and the people were great. Unfortunately my contract wasn't renewed as the organisation had a restructure and tightened budget. Otherwise it would have been a place I would have stayed for a life time career.

Actual roles are good. However Management don't support quality workers.In some groups Management and HR ignore real issues that create bad culture and work environment in a hope the issue goes away. This could be bullying and harassment and other poor behaviour that leads to this culture and majorly impacts others.

Working for Ergon Energy for close to 24 years gave me many opportunities to advance within the business and a lot of great people to work with and never a boring moment. Working through natural disasters was a challenging as well as a rewarding opportunity to see supply reconnected to our customers.

Work-life balance was not ideal
Management needed to communicate better

Too much bureaucracy

Advancement and remuneration opportunities were good, but constant restructuring led to problems

Each day at Ergon in the call centre was usually the same. Once you had logged in the phone calls would start, so this meant we were either connecting or disconnecting someone's power. The hardest part of the job was selling clean energy to consumers. The best part of the job was when you did sell this, the management would acknowledge it.

Progressive organisation redefining itself to meet changing stakeholder expectations. Relatively focused on employee wellbeing though more effort required to utilise employee skills and increase levels of engagement and wellbeing.
