    I worked at DTE Energy as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I think one of the biggest pros to working at DTE Energy was location. It's always nice to be downtown, especially because it's not too far from anywhere. DTE spends a lot of money on their campus and offices creating a very nice work environment. The pro to being a student intern in the special projects group was schedule flexibility. I didn't have to take a semester off to work. The pay was decent too.

    Cons

    DTE Energy has a very old vertical style management system, which can be very frustrating at times. A majority of employees also spend their entire lives being only employed by the company, which creates a toxic environment of people talking about one another in an unprofessional manner behind their backs, but being kind and artificially polite in person. The temporary student group is not a good group to be involved with. If you're a student, and you want a good, professional experience, trust me: do the co-op, take the semester off, you won't regret it. The structure of 100+ students reporting to the same person doesn't work. Avoid the drama of the temporary student group, it's not worth your time; the experience is there, but it's limited.

    Advice to Management

    I think DTE should consolidate the student programs and have them all under one umbrella. It would make it easier for recruiting and would give students a better opportunity. Having students only working around other students in a temporary position is less effective in training future employees and less effective in efficiently getting work done. Possibly consider eliminating the temporary student group all together, and replace it with the much better organized Co-op program.

    I worked at DTE Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay was generally good, felt good to contribute to something meaningful - generating electricity

    Cons

    Not good place for women to work. Senior level engineers can get good assignments, but many supervisor and manager positions are not posted and they often do not consider women for these positions. Several departments, even those with a large number of female employees, have never had a female manager, let alone director or vice-president.

    Advice to Management

    Some training for employees - especially managers on sexual discrimination might help. In many circumnstances - even in the downtown office - men said things and acted in ways that were discriminatory.
