    DTE Energy provided flexible, partially educational, somewhat unprofessional internship.

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

    Pros

    I think one of the biggest pros to working at DTE Energy was location. It's always nice to be downtown, especially because it's not too far from anywhere. DTE spends a lot of money on their campus and offices creating a very nice work environment. The pro to being a student intern in the special projects group was schedule flexibility. I didn't have to take a semester off to work. The pay was decent too.

    Cons

    DTE Energy has a very old vertical style management system, which can be very frustrating at times. A majority of employees also spend their entire lives being only employed by the company, which creates a toxic environment of people talking about one another in an unprofessional manner behind their backs, but being kind and artificially polite in person. The temporary student group is not a good group to be involved with. If you're a student, and you want a good, professional experience, trust me: do the co-op, take the semester off, you won't regret it. The structure of 100+ students reporting to the same person doesn't work. Avoid the drama of the temporary student group, it's not worth your time; the experience is there, but it's limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think DTE should consolidate the student programs and have them all under one umbrella. It would make it easier for recruiting and would give students a better opportunity. Having students only working around other students in a temporary position is less effective in training future employees and less effective in efficiently getting work done. Possibly consider eliminating the temporary student group all together, and replace it with the much better organized Co-op program.

    Pros

    Stable company, decent pay. good working conditions,

    Cons

    Management does not seem to have clear direction. Some changes are made for the sake of changing rather a substantial reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive to spend more time with the troops. Very often decisions made in the board room do not translate well on the floor. Articulate the reasons for changing programs/policies to all levels of employees.
