I enjoyed working there as an Assistant.

Assistant (Former Employee)
Detroit, MI

I worked at DTE Energy full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood pay, benefits, training, numerous departments to choose from, some flexible time

ConsDepending on the department, you can be overworked
Although the company has zero tolerance, there is still obvious discrimination going on

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management (CEO, Presidents, Vice Presidents) needs to get more connected to their employees. You need an oversight board to hear disputes between lower management and their employees regarding employees' work contributions during appraisal time. Some leaders leave over and beyond contributions out of appraisals especially if you are female.

Customer Service Rep

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at DTE Energy full-time for more than a year

Prosbonuses for csr's on Turn-On/Disconnect team, ability to make a difference with customers, co-workers are great, ability to move up in the company, cafeteria is awesome

Conscare more about handle time than actual customer service, favoritism, lazy supervisors, you are treated like a 5 year old with superiors always over your head, quality assurance is very petty and will knock down your scores for saying things like "that" instead of "service"...MANDATORY OVERTIME that makes it hard for you to have life or take care of child care issues

Advice to Senior Managementgive more positive feedback than negative! Raise starting wages!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Big Company, both Good and Bad

Engineering (Former Employee)
Detroit, MI

I worked at DTE Energy full-time for more than 5 years

ProsDTE has the resources of a very large company. Pay and benefits are competitive with the industry. The individual employees are a microcosm of society, some are excellent, some are bad, most are just good folks.

ConsThe company works salaried employees into the ground. Supervisors routinely earn less than the people they supervise, and a 50 hour work week is considered the base for salaried employees. As the company has the resources of a large company, they also have the mindset of a large company. Nothing happens quickly, and nothing happens at all if there aren't six months of committee meetings to determine if it is necessary.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that the company produces and sells electricity and transports and sells natural gas. Stop letting HR initiatives or accounting demands drive the direction of the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
