    I worked at DTE Energy full-time

    Pros

    Benefits!!!!! Wages and bonuses. Great work locations. Good resume builder

    Cons

    Towing the line is all that matters. Don't bring in a new way - even if it is adopted you won't get credit.

    Advice to Management

    "Yes" people and way you manage Gallup is not the way to manage for success.

    "DTE ENERGY (DOIT) EMPLOYEES OLD SCHOOL EMPLOYEES TREAT COLLEAGUES AS SLAVES"

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

    Pros

    DO IT Some of the colleagues were really helpful

    Cons

    -Dozens of them like treat your juniors like slaves
    -Send them personal messages on phone out of Office Hours and ask them status of work

    I worked for 2 Years with DTE Envergy. For the first year I was with SAP Team everything was good. Then I was moved to DOIT(Distribution IT) Team and that
    is where I had very bad experience working with this individual at DTE Energy.
    There was lady who she said she was delivery lead with DOIT Team who would give the deliverable timeline without requirements. She would send me personal
    messages on the phone 7 AM in the morning and ask me to deliver 5 reports before 11 AM same day but for me problem was what are the reports? To be able
    to deliver something you need to know the requirements in first place which she never gave to me. Then she would shout on me in front of everyone as if
    I was her slave. Then the team members told me that before me she managed to trouble 3 more candidates prior to working with me and got them fired as well.
    She would ask me to stay late in the office because she would stay late and I would keep going to her in whole office time to just find out what are the
    reports requirement and she would tell verbally what needs to be done. Following day if I deliver what she told me the night before she would say "I never told
    you to do this" and then ask me to do it again with changes. One more colleauge was too fed up with her behavior and we didn't tell anyone because we were
    contractors. At one point of time it was kind of harrasment and I made up my mind to leave the job. Before leaving I told her Manager about her behavior
    I am not sure if Management has taken any action before it is too late.

    Lot of politics due to quiet a few asians trying to Manage project and they have ego issues and treat contractors unprofessionally. Even contract positions are hired not because he/she deserves it but because they are their relatives or they would ask contractors to pay them in cash out of their pay check.
