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.
Area manager was an arrogant tool. Lied about paying next level, refused to acknowledge problems wirh the truck. Lazy supervisor still there. No support when problems.
Orica has good potential. However teh culture in the leadership team needs to be addressed in the time I was there there was 100% turn over in VPs, 2 CFOs and 3 VP Finance and 2 VP of manufactiuring. However the direct teams were very good, compitent and friendly.
Work groups (Production and Maintenance) got on well and worked together as a team. Management (those above Team Leaders) left a bit to be desired in their treatment (verbal and attitude) to the "workers". Management also seemed to either not comprehend, to be unable to, or willing to act on changes that would have made jobs easier for others. Basically "I don't have to struggle with various tasks so why change it" seemed to be the norm.
Maintenance and production worked well together.
Management could have been better on dealing with people, their poor attitudes to those below them.
I had only spent a short time there but this company gave me a chance, to which I grasped with both hands. There people and culture are second to none, very structured and professional management and training. I would go back in a heart beat, great company to work for...Thanks
Working for Orica was a pleasant and friendly environment, Management was very supportive and the staff were great to work along side off. They had great job incentives and remunerations such as end of year bonuses and rewards throughout the year for work well done. The hardest part about the job was taking abuse from customers whether they were in the right or not. My favourite part of the job was when you were successful in helping a customer achieve their goals.
Working in a stress free environment
I have worked at Orica 13 years ago. The culture back then was really good. We had a very professional Team. I am not sure if i should write my opinion about the Company that have had many changes since than.
We had good financial benefits, like 11% superannuation.
Was a major restructure
All operators / shot crews no what there doing all i have worked with are self starters . Education within company is very high standard. Upper managment has lost touch with what really makes a company. The work place culture is very high standard on ground floor each employee i have meet takes there job seriously & with great pride . The job has great job satisfaction on a day by day .
for most part your your own boss
We need to be very organised to work at Orica. Especially in our field of water and waste water treatment, we would need to be updated with all process and procedures and regulations to be able to work in excellent conditions. Timeframes are our make criteria and it was very difficult to adhere to timeframes as there are so many departments to be coordinating and dealing with. The process manager would actually be a person at the office and would need to coordinate with the field personal.
extended hours of work
Orica has a great work life balance that respects its people. Management is diverse and well travelled which is handy in the global organisation. The teams in finance and friendly, they get the job done and are an asset to this company.
