    I worked at CMS Energy part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    More like a family atmosphere. Caring people work for the company. The pay was reasonable. They had all the proper safety equipment and apparlle.

    Cons

    They would be late to pick you up. Consistently they would have you at the wrong work site. Or forget you at a work site. Consistently the work hour's would be different than the pay hour's.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the family feeling you have going on. Keep better scheduled work sites. Try to keep track of the people you employ at the work sites.

    I worked at CMS Energy full-time

    Pros

    Excellent managers create a very relaxed, fun environment to work in. They are very accommodating and flexible with schedules. They always provide plenty of opportunities to move up when there are openings within the company as well.

    Cons

    There are not many cons to be that I can express. Working at the company through my college career was almost perfect. A downside would be the occasional downtime where you need to find something to do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up fellas. The company is rolling and on a good track. Occasionally the new hires appear to be sub par.

    I worked at CMS Energy as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Great management
    -Real responsibility where you'll be contributing to projects that impact the entire company
    -Great networking opportunities
    -Excellent work/life balance
    -Compensation is fantastic
    -Professional development available to interns - so take advantage

    Cons

    I would have to say the only real con as an intern would be no concrete path toward a full-time salaried position with the company upon internship conclusion.
