    I worked at DTE Energy

    Pros

    I was able to pick my schedule and work with some great individuals. I was given the freedom to choose from certain projects to work on and shadow other business organizations in the company.

    Cons

    Driving to Detroit was a con. I enjoy being in Detroit and exploring the city, but driving from 45 minutes away each morning was tiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire interns. I had a great experience and learned quite a bit about various topics that will help me with my future career.

    Growth in IT is largely dependent on who you know vs. what you know.

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

    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.
