Friendly office environment with good salary, annual performance based share options and pay rises as part of EBA for fulltime staff. Also has a salary continuance scheme if get sick or injured. Modern offices in easy to get to location. Good company to work for however its structure and how it's staffed is forever changing. Understandably is done with a view too looking after its customers, to be a leader in it's field for pricing & service whilst also respecting the planet and the traditional owners of our land.
Pros
fantastic team culture, great modern office, great location, good pay rate, recognition for achievements
Cons
company restructures occur from time to time, redundancy can be a risk

I was head hunted for a project, and ended up staying. I enjoyed the work and people. Then I got a stupid manager who didn't understand what I was doing, and things went downhill. I moved to another project and all was good until the oil price plummeted, and the project was cancelled. I was given two weeks noticed just after getting a 12 month contract extension.

I was at Origin for over 25 years and that itself indicates the quality of the company. You need to wrk hard to ensure kpi's etc are met but that all drives towards a greater goal. The company has grown incredibly since the my commencement and will continue to improve. I highly recommend Origin Energy

Origin Energy is a good company to work for. The nature of the job ( call centre ) is stressful and fast pace but salary is ok plus you get a pay increase every year. You also get a insurance cover plus company stocks once you're a regular employee.

Origin is a great place to have a work life balance. My time available for social and gym activities have been great while working here. There is no enforced hierarchy visible and the management is very approachable. Origin is traditional in its ways and I enjoy working here. The office and infrastructure is great and easy to get used to.

My experience working here was good because I learnt alot of skills and knowledge into the energy industry. It was a very professional environment. Managers and team leaders really looked after me in good and bad times to help develop my skills for further improvements. Salary was also increased to a reasonable amount

Overall, in my time at Origin Energy it taught me a lot, I gained plenty of new skills however, the team leaders and management were appalling and the job itself sends your mental health down the drain. Only bonus of the job was the pay.
