    I worked at DTE Energy as an intern

    Pros

    Co-ops are especially good at giving you valuable work experience. Also if you work downtown, free six sigma yellow belt classes which are useful and can help you in your education - especially if you're a business or engineering major.

    Cons

    The pay just isn't as great as it is at other companies. Also, because it's such a large company, your experience can vary depending on your department and the responsibility they give you. I would recommend a co-op over an internship experience. Interns are less likely to get valuable work experience.

    Advice to Management

    Hold departments accountable to ensure co-ops get meaningful work experience.
