"Folks in IT stop and think"

StarStarStarStarStar
Current Employee - IT Analyst in Detroit, MI
Current Employee - IT Analyst in Detroit, MI

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

Pros

Family value, mutual respect, love and care, decent salary

Cons

The company is trying so many new things with the IT department lately, SCRUM, agile, new Vendor for support.. Just too much for a small IT department. The processes are not. Improving but the good employees are leaving for sure. Something is wrong somewhere, time for investors and Board to do some serious thinking. People who mattered the most are now leaving and the new generation of Auto is taking over.

Advice to Management

Quit

    Pros

    This was prior to 2010...Good place, caring, challenging, you take pride in wearing the color, happy folks, satisfied customers

    Cons

    Post 2010: New Leadership in IT, Some company from India came to support the Maintenance work in IT, not sure about what we were doing and what they. The new IT Leadership came with lots of idea but did not see a single change in the last 3 years, yes good people are leaving every other week.
    Since 2010, 60 folks must have left, I left in 2011 and I am glad that I am out of the madness. A very good company but as someone said, headed Autos' way. Time to sell the stock and move on with my life.

    Advice to Management

    To the Board of Directors: Something is wrong, right at the very Top.

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

    Pros

    Good company, stable environment, cares for family

    Cons

    The IT department has no clue lately. Changing to auto style culture, too many IT Directors coming from Auto, trying to change the culture or fix something which is not broken. Almost 50 good folks left the company since the new CIO took over. 100 years of success will soon be lost in the next 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Time to re- think the strategy before it's too late. No one is happy in IT.
