    I have been working at Consumers Energy full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity for a broad range of career paths. No lack of work, and is only expected to grow. Good compensation, though not as competitive as it could be.

    Cons

    Mid-management could do a lot better at engaging and empowering employees. Status quo is evident in many long-term employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more openly to employees, and stop enforcing arbitrary lines in the sand. Invest in your younger employees - you can't just expect them to stay.
