IT Service Desk Analyst in East Melbourne VIC
on 6 February 2020
Fast paced, sometimes stressful, sometimes under staffed.
When I started 13 years ago the environment was totally different. Several changes in IT Senior management saw a lot of ineffective outsourcing, with those who implemented the outsourcing not staying around to feel the (mostly negative, except on the balance sheet) impact.
Permanent in Kalgoorlie WA
on 13 December 2021
Work itself is simple and co-workers are a happy bunch but the access to get the job done is a mission to accomplish.
There are multiple bosses and too many persons to report to and all of them have a KIA - know-it-all behaviour who play the Safety card and eventually dictate the way a job has to be done this stress you out. Most leadership jobs are delegated downstream and end up long hours to complete the additional jobs. Poor planning and lack of personnel and eventually burn outs.

Promise a lot, delivered not much
Orica are great place for training if your in the purple circle, they promise a lot but rarely delivered on their promises. Moved interstate for a career but had to work so hard to b accepted, so I treated them as they treated me and they didn't like it. Got made redundant and they couldn't even tell me the reasons why !! Worst mistake ever !!

Rubbish upper management
Wannabe Yes management with no people skills, the ones who get put into management jobs because they suck up to the bosses. No pay rises for the last 5 years no wonder they can’t keep good operators.
