I have been working at Consumers Energy as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great people to work with. Everyone was willing to help and explain any problems I had. Overall it was a great experience.

Cons

Seemed like a very rigid, formal environment. The work itself was mundane and boring. Didn't seem like there were a lot of job opportunities in the field I was interested in.

    Current Employee - IT Analyst in Detroit, MI

    I have been working at Consumers Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family value, mutual respect, love and care, decent salary

    Cons

    The company is trying so many new things with the IT department lately, SCRUM, agile, new Vendor for support.. Just too much for a small IT department. The processes are not. Improving but the good employees are leaving for sure. Something is wrong somewhere, time for investors and Board to do some serious thinking. People who mattered the most are now leaving and the new generation of Auto is taking over.

    Advice to Management

    Quit

    I worked at Consumers Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This was prior to 2010...Good place, caring, challenging, you take pride in wearing the color, happy folks, satisfied customers

    Cons

    Post 2010: New Leadership in IT, Some company from India came to support the Maintenance work in IT, not sure about what we were doing and what they. The new IT Leadership came with lots of idea but did not see a single change in the last 3 years, yes good people are leaving every other week. Since 2010, 60 folks must have left, I left in 2011 and I am glad that I am out of the madness. A very good company but as someone said, headed Autos' way. Time to sell the stock and move on with my life.

    Advice to Management

    To the Board of Directors: Something is wrong, right at the very Top.
