    I worked at DTE Energy as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great Company, pay, multicultural workplace

    Cons

    traveling, no flexible hours for interns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DTE should have a better intern program. Interviewer should thoroughly review resumes before hiring interns or have an amazing training session or a mentor. Not just throwing them in and having them work on pesky projects. When I found work in the power plant (related to the degree I'm pursuing as Mechanical Engineer), I got yelled at by my manager - that I barely saw the few months I was working there - and was accused of stealing the companys' time because I was not sitting in a cold office at my desk doing nothing. But that's just my bad experience.

    Pros

    A lot of Freedom, can do your work at your pace as long as you complete it by the deadline.

    Cons

    I didnt like having to deal with customers whose power I had to turn off. It was very difficult and sad. Another con of the job was having to worry about dogs and bees when you restore or disconnect some ones power.

    I have been working at DTE Energy full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Puts much emphasis on continuous improvement and meetings. It's a very stable company and with excellent job security. Most positions offer very competitive salaries, except for entry-level out of school. The headquarters are located downtown two blocks from the circle and parking is free. It is a great place to gain valuable experience and great for those hiring in at management level positions.

    Cons

    The main information system was updated in 2007 to S.A.P. and there are still many problems because data is input wrong as a result of a lack of training to front end users. Furthermore, the company has typical corporate culture that can get boring. Most processes are fairly structured, however upward mobility within the company comes down to personal pursuit.

    Pros

    The best part about working for DTE is that they mostly don't question me trying to get as much training as I can.

    Cons

    Leadership positions are unattractive, so there is little incentive to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make supervisor+ positions more attractive, either by gargantuan monetary incentives or better work-life balance.
