  8. "slow to promote from within, low chance of advancing, cookie cutter organization..."

    I worked at DTE Energy full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay, slowly changing their culture

    Cons

    Investing your time as an intern or temp does not always promise you a position within. Baby boomers and employees become lifers allowing no room for growth to the newer generation and emulating a boring, slow, stagnant work place.

    Advice to Management

    Managers or supervisors need to become leaders and coaches and drop favoritism to whom they choose. Pushing away the new generations creativity, shunning the younger brighter generation, and honing in on the same typical cookie cutter versions of themselves will only hinder an organization.

    I worked at DTE Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and that’s about it.

    Cons

    Sexual harassment in certain locations was swept under the rug as well as many other things. The things said to me by people in management were unbelievable. If I were to post what was said to me on here it would probably get taken down that’s how bad it was. Not only were terrible things said to me, I also had to ask someone on many occasions to stop touching me.

    Advice to Management

    Take complaints seriously. Stop rewarding and protecting employees who do awful things.
