Olympus OM-D EM5 flash not good?

Taken a few flash photos with the standard flash that comes with the camera

and I must say very unimpressed.

I know it's an out of the box flash but I expected better.

I know a bit about SLR cameras and can use App/speed priority when required

but generally these days I do a lot of my snapshots in Auto.

Even so the pics are what I would expect from an iphone or $80 camera?

Could I be doing something wrong? The photos I took indoor at night without

the flash were twice as good as with the flash as the camera obviously compensates for the low

light. With the flash the pics were very dim or the foreground bright and subjects behind dim.
