    I have been working at Consumers Energy


    Pay, Benefits, Location, the People. Very generous vacation after the first year, plus you can purchase additional vacation time.


    The first year you don't get much vacation. It's dependent on when you were hired, and then a 3-month probation, and then it's prorated from that point to the end of the year. Ex.: if you're hired in April, you'd only get 2.5 days for the remainder of that year. Also, they phased out the traditional pension for new hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Base raises on performance, at least in part. Like another reviewer stated, what incentive do I have to do anything but an "Acceptable" job, when I don't get rewarded for it (other than a pat on the back)?

    No opinion of CEO
