Terrible place to work as a contractor
Technical Specialist - Contractor (Former Employee) –  Jackson, MIApril 5, 2018
Terrible place to work as a contractor. You are treated like a second class citizen. You are made to feel excluded from company events even though your work is the same as the people who are actually employees. Contractors are not allow to discuss things with Management, even after, discussing it with their contact house. You are made to feel little, small and not part of a team.

great place to learn
Software Packaging Engineer (Former Employee) –  Jackson, MIMarch 21, 2018
This company was great as far as you learning. They would teach you anything and show you anything and give training videos or personally show you. But there was a lack of advancement as the company liked to hire contractors and keep in house employees to a minimum.
Pros
versatility
Cons
lack of advancement

Good place to work overall
Multiple Positions (Former Employee) –  Jackson, MIFebruary 1, 2018
I started at Consumers right out of high school and worked there one week short of 35 years. Objectively speaking, I enjoyed almost all the positions I held over the years. Like many large companies there are huge communication silos that inhibit communication across departmental lines.
Pros
Established company in Michigan

fast pace and long hours and poor leadership
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Lansing, MIJanuary 29, 2018
fast pace, rules, regulations, restrictions, and poor leadership and work life balance.leaders only know how to manage using old style management style. they have favorites, and treat people poorly. many need to retire as they are just marking off the days on their calendars waiting to retire. They don't lead, engage, and inspire.

A mix of scheduled and the unexpected; busy.
Administrative Specialist Lead (Former Employee) –  Jackson, MIJanuary 22, 2018
A typical work day consisted of various regularly performed tasks such as checking calendars, data bases, phone messages. Also, many regulatory and safety/security related tasks. In addition, there were always new experiences; a real need for composure. Customer service was extremely important. Co-workers were friendly but competitive. Enjoyed all of the aspects of my job and was disappointed that my position was eliminated.
