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

    Pros

    Benefits and pay, other then that there is no other pros. All I can tell you is keep you head down and you might be able to retire from there.

    Cons

    If you're not in the club or have a relative that is higher up ,you will never move up. Also if you are the best employee that they have and someone higher up doesn't like you to find a way to fire you over the smallest thing. Whatever you do, never leave the union.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't care as long as they can get their friends and family in the company, everybody else they just get rid of. Most higher up don't even know what they are doing, that is why so many houses blowup from natural gas.

    I have been working at DTE Energy full-time

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, employee perks discount. There are a lot of very nice very good people.

    Cons

    There is really no emphasis or importance placed on growth or advancement. At any given time this company of 10,000+ employees has very few job openings (10-20). Everything seems to rely on knowing someone higher up- not your skill or hard work. Most promotions are a surprise and usually have nothing to do with the person's expertise or background.

    There is a lack of innovation and challenge. This is mostly due to there not being much competition. If you are young or in the early stages of your career this would not be a place for continuous learning/growth. While the rest of the world is advancing in technology and moving towards the future, DTE is still operating with processes from the 80s.

    Advice to Management

    Take time out of your schedules, time away from texting or staring at your phones and help your employees. Almost everyone I have spoken to says that most DTE management has little to no care or even no knowledge on how to manage their employees. There is no time taken to help in career advancement, growth, next steps or your future at the company. This is really casting a grey cloud over how good people feel about working at DTE. This has and will push a lot of great talent out of the door.
    There are "goals" that are supposed to be set for each year. There are multiple check ins throughout the year that are supposed to happen. I have been here 4 years and it's never happened. "Goals" and "updates" are filled out a day before they are due in the system. Directors and Senior Management need to pay closer attention to this.
